Interesting enigmas in the demography of fertility: examples from Switzerland

Demography - events - Mon, 2017-01-16 12:04
Date and time:  Fri, 17th Feb 2017 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm Presenter:  Dr Marion Burkimsher Location:  Seminar Room A, Coombs Building #9

Demography is about good statistics, but should we believe the numbers we produce?
For instance, do these puzzles have good explanations?

If an average woman in Switzerland goes through her full reproductive life when the average fertility rate (TFR) is 1.5, how does she end up with an average of 1.8 children?

How can it be that the TFR of foreigners is higher that that of the native Swiss, yet they have smaller families?

If spacing between children has remained constant, how is it that the difference in mean age of successive birth orders has declined?
