Australian immigration policy at the crossroads

Thu, 2017-05-11 15:52
Date and time:  Fri, 2nd Jun 2017 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm School of Demography Location:  Seminar Room A Presenter:  Peter Hughes

Australian immigration policy is at the crossroads. Our permanent and temporary migration programs are at record levels, but border protection and maritime asylum seekers have dominated public debate for over a decade. Many of the fundamental principles that have guided our policies for the last 70 years are looking more fragile. Mass movements of people in the Middle East and Africa have led to more restrictive northern hemisphere immigration policies. The UN is working on development of Global Compacts on Migration and Refugees to broker more positive approaches.

Bayesian demographic estimation and forecasting

Date and time:  Fri, 12th May 2017 - 1:30pm - 2:30pm School of Demography Location:  Seminar Room A Presenter:  John Bryant

Abstract: There is a natural affinity between Bayesian statistical methods and demographic estimation and forecasting. Bayesian methods can cope with complex models, noisy data, and uncertainty, all of which figure prominently in demographic estimation and forecasting.  Bayesian methods also have transparent mechanisms for bringing in expert judgement, which allows them to capitalize on the substantive knowledge built up within demography.

Self-agency and asylum: Who, how and why people undertake long and dangerous migration journeys. An examination of the migration patterns and processes of Hazara irregular maritime asylum seekers to Australia

Date and time:  Fri, 26th May 2017 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm School of Demography Location:  Seminar Room A Presenter:  Marie McAuliffe

In recent years, large numbers of people have embarked on high-risk sea journeys to reach specific destinations, including Australia, Greece, Italy, Spain, Malaysia, Thailand and the United States. In 2015, for example, over 850,000 people crossed the Aegean Sea from Turkey to Greece, with many continuing their journeys to eventually reach other parts of Europe (mostly Germany, Sweden and Austria). Just over half were Syrian refugees who had been living in Turkey, with Afghans, Iraqis, Pakistanis, Iranians and a multitude of others making up the remainder.

Differences in labour force participation between birth cohorts and the implications for long-term projections

Thu, 2017-04-06 12:19
Date and time:  Fri, 12th May 2017 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm Seminar School of Demography Location:  Seminar Room A Presenter:  Linus Gustafsson, Department of Treasury

The persistent rise in aggregate labour force participation rates in Australia up until around 2010 suggests that later birth cohorts are more likely to participate than earlier ones. However, changes in aggregate participation rates are often analysed by looking separately at developments for different age groups. For example, Treasury produces medium- to long-term participation rate projections for different age groups for the Commonwealth Budget and the Intergenerational Report. These projections are then aggregated using projections of the structure of the population.
