Analysis of economic aspects of population change including fertility, mortality, health, marriage, migration, and labor force behavior. Microeconomic models of household behavior incorporating gender and inter-generational bargaining over resource allocation, are used to explain behavior in contemporary low- and high-income countries. Policy interventions that seek to improve health, reduce fertility, or change work patterns are then evaluated statistically based on the developed models of household behavior.
