Jump to: navigation, search

Demographic economics or population economics is the application of economic analysis to demography, the study of human populations, including size, growth, density, distribution, and vital statistics.[1][2]

Aspects of the subject include

Other subfields include measuring value of life[52][53] and the economics of the elderly[54][55][56] and the handicapped[57][58][59] and of gender,[60][61][62] race, minorities, and non-labor discrimination.[63][64] In coverage and subfields, it complements labor economics[65][66] and implicates a variety of other economics subjects.[67][68][69]

Subareas[edit]

The Journal of Economic Literature classification codes are a way of categorizing subjects in economics. There, Demographic Economics is paired with Labor Economics as one of 19 primary classifications at JEL: J.[70] It has 8 subareas, which are listed below with JEL-code links to corresponding available article-preview links of The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics (2008) Online:

JEL: J10 (all) – General
JEL: J11 – Demographic Trends and Forecasts
JEL: J12Marriage; Marital Dissolution; Family Structure
JEL: J13Fertility; Family Planning; Child Care; Children; Youth
JEL: J14 – Economics of the Elderly; Economics of the Handicapped
JEL: J15 – Economics of Minorities and Races; Non-labor Discrimination
JEL: J16 – Economics of Gender; Non-labor Discrimination
JEL: J17Value of life; Foregone Income
JEL: J18 – Public Policy.
