Dynamic Analysis of the Long-term Relationships between Mortality and Marital Fertility in the Developed World




Jeromey Temple, Associate Professor

Jeromey Temple is Associate Professor of Demography at CEPAR, located in the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health at the University of Melbourne. Temple is one of Australia’s few economic demographers and leads the Australian National Transfer Accounts (NTA) project. The NTA seeks to improve our understanding of the generational economy through documenting the economic lifecycle in a manner consistent with the system of National Accounts. The Australian NTA forms part of a large international effort with research teams on the NTA, covering over 80 countries in the Asia-Pacific, Americas, Europe and Africa with a total population in excess of 6 billion people. Jeromey also works on a range of other research projects, mainly at the intersection of demography, economics and public policy – and their relationship to ageing at both the individual and population level. Jeromey holds a BA in Population Studies (first class hons), a B.Com and Ph.D in Demography, all from the Australia National University (ANU).



Population Review is seeking quantitative research papers on the Third Demographic Transition (TDT). As originally discussed by Professor David Coleman in 2006, the TDT is underpinned by the assumption that population mobility, particularly migration, alters the ethnic/race composition of a population in developed countries, resulting in positive and negative socioeconomic consequences.  In 2016, Professor Aris Ananta found that a similar pattern materialized in developing countries (e.g. Indonesia).

This call for papers seeks high-quality contributions on the TDT as it applies to both developed and developing countries. Papers may include a topic within a specific country, a collection of countries or an entire geographical region. Submissions accepted under peer-review will be compiled into a Special Collection, which will be accessible online at www.populationreview.com.

The Special Collection will be edited by three guest editors:

1) Professor Aris Ananta, Faculty of Economics and Business, Universitas Indonesia, Indonesia (arisananta@gmail.com);

2) Professor David Coleman, Emeritus Professor of Demography and Associate Fellow, Department of Social Policy and Intervention, Oxford University (david.coleman@spi.ox.ac.uk); and

3) Professor Farhat Yusuf, Menzies Centre for Health Policy, Sydney School of Public Health, the University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia (farhat.yusuf@sydney.edu.au) and Emeritus Professor, Faculty of Business and Economics, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia (farhat.yusuf@mq.edu.au).

Aris Ananta, an economist and demographer, has published extensively on ethnicity in Indonesia. His publications can be found in numerous influential journals, including Asean Economic Bulletin, Asian and Pacific Migration Journal, Asian Population Studies, and Population Review, among others. He is the author of many books.  Most recently, he co-authored Demography of Indonesia’s Ethnicity, published by the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies in 2015. From 2001 to 2014, Aris was a senior research fellow at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore.

David Coleman, a demographer, has been a Professor of Demography at Oxford University since 2002 and was the Reader in Demography between 1996-2002, and Lecturer in Demography since 1980. Between 1985 and 1987 he worked for the British government, as the Special Adviser to the Home Secretary, and then to the Ministers of Housing and of the Environment. Research interests include the comparative demographic trends in the industrial world; the future of fertility, the demographic consequences of migration and the demography of ethnic minorities. International collaborative work continues on these topics at the Vienna Institute of Demography. He has worked as a consultant for the Home Office, for the United Nations and for private business. He has published over 150 papers and eight books, including The State of Population Theory: Forward from Malthus (ed.with R.S. Schofield, 1986), The British Population: patterns, trends and processes (with J. Salt, 1992. Oxford University Press); International Migration: Regional Responses and Processes (ed. with M. Macura 1994); Europe’s Population in the 1990s (ed. 1996, Oxford University Press), Ethnicity in the 1991 Census. Volume 1: Demographic characteristics of ethnic minority populations, edited (with J. Salt), London, HMSO and Immigration to Denmark: national and international perspectives (with E. Wadensjo, 1999, Aarhus University Press).

Farhat Yusuf, an epidemiologist and demographer, has published extensively on various population and health related issues and has been a United Nations consultant in many Asian and African countries.  His research has appeared in reputable journals, such as Population Research and Policy Review, Journal of Biosocial Science, Medical Journal of Australia and Public Health. His most recent book, Methods of Demographic Analysis, was published by Springer in 2014.

This is an open call through 15 February 2018.  Papers will be published in the order they receive acceptance. For submissions, please contact Prof. Heili Pals (hpals@tamu.edu).
