<Fertility and Family>

In this workshop we will explore how families and relationships are changing in the 21st Century, with a focus on what these changes mean for fertility. With large numbers of countries experiencing declines in fertility rates, some to very low levels, this workshop will consider whether this presents a crisis or opportunities.

The workshop will explore methods for measuring fertility, including assessing their strengths and limitations. Participants will learn how to calculate different measures of fertility and explain how they can be used to understand changes in fertility. For these calculations, we will use Excel for demonstration.

Finally, the workshop will discuss a range of different fertility and family policies that have been implemented, covering policies with a specific aim to reduce fertility, through to multidimensional policies which aim to address challenges affecting families.

No prior knowledge is assumed for this workshop.
