Event Description:
The CUNY Institute for Demographic Research (CIDR) invites you to the next presentation of the CIDR
Demography Seminar Series for academic year 2019-20:

Warren C. Sanderson
Stony Brook University

Prof. Sanderson will be discussing findings from his new book "Prospective Longevity: A New Vision of Population Aging"

Abstract: The study of population aging should be based on measurements of the characteristics of people, not just their chronological ages. 65-year-old women in Japan in 1950-55, for example, had a remaining life expectancy of 13.5 years. By 2010-15, they had a remaining life expectancy of 23.9 years. In the study of population aging 65-year-old Japanese in 1950-55 and 2010-15 should not be treated as being equally elderly just because they have the same chronological age. The idea that the study of population aging should be based on characteristics of people, not just their chronological ages opens up a revolutionary new perspective on the subject. We call our new approach the characteristics approach to the study of population aging. In this talk, I discuss the methodology of the new approach and provide examples. The examples will include analyses of: (1) how old do people need to be to be counted as old, (2) whether faster improvements in life expectancy will lead to faster or slower population aging, (3) whether health in old age has been deteriorating or improving, (4) whether population aging is likely to come to an end while life expectancy continues to increase, (5) whether population aging can be assessed independently of population age structures, (6) whether the US longevity recession should affect its intergenerationally equitable normal pension age, and (7) which potential support ratio should be used in which circumstances.
 
Pre-Seminar: We will meet at 12:30pm to have lunch with the speaker.

Talk will begin at 1:00pm

Post-Seminar: CIDR fellows and Demography Certificate students are strongly encouraged to meet with the speaker after the seminar to discuss their work further and consult about graduate school, research, job
market, career, etc.
