  • The main aim of the paper is to analyse the time-space development of the age structure of the European population. The period of investigation is 1950-2010 which is extended by a projected development until 2060. Changes in age structure
  • are analysed through several indicators such as coefficients of inflow, outflow and exchange, as well as with indices of economic and social support. AA. make also efforts to provide a complex assessment on population ageing. Using the method of standardised

  • A spatio-temporal analysis of population and employment growth for Southern California
  • On se pose deux questions-clés concernant des données (ratio population-emploi) à l'échelle des comtés en Californie du Sud. On examine si cette région a connu ou va connaître une convergence dans la variance inter-comtés de ce ratio dans une
  • perspective de long terme. On fait un test pour comprendre si une approche d'autorégression vectorielle contribue au développement du modèle de projection régional de ce ratio au niveau du comté. On valide les projections VAR à l'aide d'ensembles indépendants

  • This paper presents the findings of a qualitative research project exploring current housing issues in the Greater Darwin area. It explains that increased housing stress in Darwin, and a myopic focus on rapid economic growth, may disenfranchise
  • to ensure the benefits are spread across the population. Unfortunately, the Northern Territory government's dilatory approach to both housing issues and the social costs of the resources boom makes it highly unlikely innovative partnerships will occur.

  • This paper investigates the current state of the art for assessments on urban surface transport, where rising populations and increasing dependence on efficient and reliable mobility have increased the importance placed on resilience to weather
  • and behavioural relationships on to future climates, including a broad move away from previous deterministic methods and towards probabilistic projections which make use of a much broader range of climate change model output, giving a better representation

  • Public taps and private connections : the production of caste distinction and common sense in a Rajasthan drinking water supply project
  • This article examines public taps and private connections through the production of caste distinction and common sense in a Rajasthan drinking water supply project. To do so, it brings together geographic research on neoliberal water governance
  • and caste processes in modern rural India to illuminate how neoliberal subjectivities deepened in the post-project phase. It shows the ways that caste norms, village water governance and state power converged to produce ‘new’ ways of thinking about water
