About the product

This book examines the consequences and implications of changing family and household structures that are expected to result in over 20 countries around the world: Belgium, Canada, China, Italy, United Kingdom, ex-USSR, USA, Yugoslavia are some of them. Articles by demographers, economists and statisticians help explain the causes of change in age structure and its consequences on public revenue and expenditure and on the labour force. They also help identify the possible adjustment mechanisms and national approaches to improving the demographic policies.
