The new issue (Nr. 4/2011) of "Demografische Forschung Aus Erster Hand", the popular science newsletter with latest research results from demography, has been released. (The Newsletter is available in German only.)

  • Growth of the world population. Education of women is crucial. A difference of one billion people is possible by the year 2050.
  • Stepfamilies are economically disadvantaged. This discrimination takes place in France and Western Germany but not in the East.
  • The fewer people there are, the more bank branches there are per person. Even sparsely populated areas are served by savings and cooperative banks.

The newsletter is released four times a year and is available electronically and as a printed version and is free of charge.
