  • Developing and implementing the UN's probabilistic population projections
           as a milestone for Bayesian demography: An interview with Adrian Raftery
           (by Monica Alexander, Adrian E. Raftery)

    • Abstract: Background: Population projections for all countries are published by the United Nations Population Division (UNPD) every two years as part of the World Population Prospects (WPP). Since 2015, probabilistic population projections have been published as part of WPP, produced using Bayesian statistical models. Central to this methodological change was a team of statisticians at the University of Washington, led by Professor Adrian Raftery. Objective: This interview with Adrian Raftery details the history of the UNPD WPP probabilistic population projections, including how the project started, the methodological challenges, main takeaways and lessons, and priorities for future research. Contribution: This interview contributes to the record of scientific thought and the advancement of methodology in demographic research. It demonstrates the evolution of a successful scientific project with large scientific impact and a broader influence on the field of Bayesian demography.

  • Using Respondent-Driven Sampling to measure abortion safety in restrictive
           contexts: Results from Kaya (Burkina Faso) and Nairobi (Kenya) (by Lonkila
           Moussa Zan, Onikepe Owolabi, Adama Baguiya, Ramatou Ouedraogo, Martin
           Bangha, Caron Kim, Clémentine Rossier)

    • Abstract: Background: Due to restrictive laws and limited service provision, globally the majority of induced abortions are unsafe and remain largely undocumented, despite their negative impact on women’s health. Objective: The purpose of this study is to test Respondent-Driven Sampling – used previously in HIV research – for abortion, and to measure abortion safety characteristics in the small town of Kaya and surrounding villages (Burkina Faso) and in the slums of Nairobi (Kenya). Methods: A preliminary qualitative study confirmed that women disclose to network members when seeking an abortion. Using RDS, we recruited 481 abortion-seekers from 12 seeds in Kaya (in max. 10 waves) and 551 abortion-seekers from 8 seeds in Nairobi (in max. 5 waves) in 2021. These respondents reported 487 (Kaya) and 595 (Nairobi) abortions in the previous 3 years. Results: Standard diagnostics showed that the safety characteristics of the abortions of the recruited women were independent of those of the seeds, but sample-wide convergence was reached at relatively high sample sizes (around 300 in Kaya and 400 in Nairobi). More advanced checks indicated convergence (or tendency towards convergence) across seeds, except for one indicator in one site. In Kaya, most women used plant-based methods (50%) and unidentified pills (Medical Abortion (MA) in appearance) (33%). In Nairobi, women used unidentified pills (likely MA) (38% of abortions), followed by plant-based (21%) and known harmful methods (19%); pharmacists were frequent providers (45%). In Kaya, abortions occurred in the first trimester (98%), but less so in Nairobi (70%). The level of reported likely infected complications was similar across sites (6.2% in Kaya versus 9.6% in Nairobi). Conclusions: While the RDS misses non-networked abortion-seekers (an arguably small share of abortion-seekers in the sites), the different available quality checks yielded positive signals as to the possibility of using RDS to obtain data representative of networked abortions. The data revealed contrasting safety characteristics and abortion-seeker profiles across sites. Contribution: RDS is cheap, yields large and diverse samples of abortion-seekers, and is equipped with built-in quality tests: it is a promising avenue for collecting data on abortions in restrictive settings where abortion-seekers are highly networked, although a number of limitations remain and further development is needed.

  • Between money and intimacy: Brideprice, marriage, and women’s position
           in contemporary China (by Yifeng Wan)

    • Abstract: Background: Brideprice – a transfer from the groom’s to the bride’s family as part of the marriage process – has been a prominent element of marriage and kinship systems in many societies. While brideprice has declined as many countries modernize, the amount of brideprice has increased in China. Objective: This study examines how the meanings attributed to brideprice payments at the time of marriage shape brideprice repayments at the time of divorce, focusing on two frames of brideprice: an interfamily compensation for female labor and fertility, and an intergenerational endowment for the newlyweds. Methods: This study uses a unique data set containing over 100,000 court decisions involving brideprice disputes to estimate fractional regression models. Results: Brideprice repayment ratios are consistently higher for brideprice as compensation than for brideprice as endowment. Brideprice repayment ratios are higher in cases where the bride has undergone an abortion or has childbearing experience, resides in a rural area, or ends an engagement without registering the marriage. Conclusions: These findings demonstrate that, unlike trends in many other societies, the traditional practice of brideprice in China has not declined. Instead, both the amounts involved in brideprice payments and the ratios of brideprice repayments upon dissolution have seen an increase. The intersection of brideprice type and rural/urban residence substantially shapes the repayment of brideprice upon a relationship’s dissolution, whether through breakup or divorce. Contribution: This study presents new data on brideprice payments and repayments, demonstrating that the two types of brideprice parallel in contemporary China. It also contributes to our understanding of how various factors influence the outcomes of brideprice return in court proceedings.

  • Predictive utility of key family planning indicators on dynamic
           contraceptive outcomes: Results from longitudinal surveys in Burkina Faso,
           Kenya, Uganda, and Côte d'Ivoire (by Amy Tsui, Dana Sarnak, Phil
           Anglewicz, Fredrick Makumbi, Georges Guiella, Peter Gichangi, Rosine
           Mosso, Saifuddin Ahmed)

    • Abstract: Background: Many health and demographic surveys routinely collect information on women’s exposure to family planning (FP) messages, counseling on contraceptive side effects, discussions about FP with providers, contraceptive decision-making autonomy, and the desire for additional children. Several studies have shown significant associations with current contraceptive use status from these cross-sectional data. However, the predictive utility of these indicators on contraceptive use and its dynamics over time is not well-known, primarily due to the lack of longitudinal data. Objective: To empirically assess the predictive utility of key family planning indicators on contraceptive use outcomes using longitudinal data from women participating in national annual surveys in four sub-Saharan African countries. Methods: This study utilizes nationally representative longitudinal Performance and Monitoring for Action data collected in Kenya, Burkina Faso, Uganda, and Côte d’Ivoire from reproductive-age women to model the predictive influence of indicators measured at baseline on their subsequent contraceptive use (including intentions to use and method type) and contraceptive dynamics (including adoption, discontinuation, and switching) over an approximately three-year period. Results: Some indicators measured at baseline (e.g., FP media exposure and fertility preferences) consistently influenced women’s contraceptive adoption and intentions over two to three years of observation, but the predictive utility of most indictors was largely weak for dynamic outcomes such as switching and discontinuation. Contribution: Our study highlights a programmatic need to reconsider long-standing FP indicators given the mixed evidence of their influence on contraceptive behavior over time. We recommend the identification of key measures that can predict dynamic contraceptive behaviors established through longitudinal data to inform actionable interventions.

  • The Average Uneven Mortality index: Building on the ‘e-dagger’ measure
           of lifespan inequality (by Marco Bonetti, Ugofilippo Basellini, Andrea
           Nigri)

    • Abstract: Background: In recent years, lifespan inequality has become an important indicator of population health. Uncovering the statistical properties of lifespan inequality measures can provide novel insights on the study of mortality. Methods: We introduce the ‘Average Uneven Mortality’ (AUM) index, a novel mortality indicator for the study of mortality patterns and lifespan inequality. We prove some new properties of interest, as well as relationships with the ‘e-dagger’ and entropy measures of lifespan inequality. Results: The use of the AUM index is illustrated through an application to observed period and cohort death rates from the Human Mortality Database. We explore the behavior of the index across age and over time, and we study its relationship with life expectancy. The AUM index at birth declined over time until the 1950s, when it reverted its trend; also, the index generally increases with age. Contribution: The AUM index is a normalized version of Vaupel and Canudas-Romo’s e-dagger measure that can be meaningfully compared across countries and over time. Additionally, we derive an upper bound for both e-dagger and the life-table entropy measures, which are novel formal results. Finally, we develop novel routines to compute e-dagger and the standard deviation of lifetimes from death rates, which are often more precise than available software, particularly for calculations involving older ages.

  • Open science practices in demographic research: An appraisal (by
           Ugofilippo Basellini)

    • Abstract: Background: In the light of recent concerns about the reliability of scientific research, the open science movement has attracted considerable attention and interest from a variety of sources, including researchers, research institutions, the business industry, intergovernmental organizations, the media and the public. However, the current extent of openness in demographic research remains unknown. Methods: All relevant publications in four leading journals of anglophone demography -- Demography, Population and Development Review, Population Studies and Demographic Research -- over the last decade are analysed. Using a text search algorithm, two quantitative metrics of open scientific knowledge are estimated: the share of publications that can be openly accessed, and the share of publications providing open software codes for reproducibility or replicability purposes. Results: Two contrasting patterns emerge from these indicators. Access to demographic research papers is increasingly available to everyone, with more than 90\% of Open Access publications in the first ten months of 2023. Conversely, the provision of open software codes is considerably low, ranging from an average of about 2-4\% in three journals to about 29\% in Demographic Research, with only small signs of improvement over the last three years. Contribution: This reflection provides the first assessment of the adoption of some open science practices in demographic research and their evolution over the last decade. An urgent change is needed in the sharing of software codes (along with the data used, where possible) to contribute to the advancement of demographic research. Some recommendations for promoting this change are discussed.

  • Uncovering disability-free grandparenthood in Italy between 1998 and 2016
           using gender-specific decomposition (by Margherita Moretti, Elisa Cisotto,
           Alessandra De Rose)

    • Abstract: Background: Decreasing fertility rates and increasing lifespan affect the time grandparents and grandchildren co-exist. Any changes in the time and length of grandparenthood could alter the quality and the direction of intergenerational exchange. In Italy, a country in which grandparents constitute a fundamental resource for the provision of childcare and where families are the main source of support for individuals, studying grandparents' health evolution is crucial, especially considering the limited evidence available. Objective: This study aims to uncover the evolution of disability-free grandparenthood at age 65 between 1998 and 2016 in Italy, analysing changes due to the longevity revolution and to grandparenthood–disability prevalence, with a focus on gender differences. Methods: Disability-free grandparenthood is estimated for Italy for the years 1998 to 2016 and by gender using the Sullivan method. The linear integral decomposition method is implemented to assess the contribution of changes in mortality and the grandparenthood–disability prevalence on the evolution of disability-free grandparenthood over time. Results: Between 1998 and 2016, Italian grandparents gained disability-free years of life overlapping with their grandchildren. Grandmothers gained 2.6 years (from 9.9 to 12.5 years), and grandfathers 1.8 years (from 8.9 to 10.7 years). Overall, this trend was primarily driven by improvements in health and survival. However, the postponement in the transition to grandparenthood for men slightly slowed down the trend. Contribution: This study introduces grandparenthood into the estimation of generation overlap and provides the first evidence of a disability-free grandparenthood trend in Italy, where the health of grandparents is crucial to understanding intergenerational relationships and family dynamics.

  • Two-dimensional contour decomposition: Decomposing mortality differences
           into initial difference and trend components by age and cause of death (by
           Dmitri Jdanov, Domantas Jasilionis, Vladimir Shkolnikov)

    • Abstract: Background: Conventional decomposition analysis identifies contributions from differences in covariates in total between-population difference, but does not address the question of the historical roots of the differences. To close this gap, the contour decomposition method was proposed. Since 2017, when it was published, this method has been successfully applied in several papers. Nevertheless, it has an important limitation: causes of death cannot be included in the analyses. Objective: Conventional decomposition analysis provides insight into the reasons for a difference in an aggregate index. It can be either the difference between two populations at a given time or a temporal change for one population. However, it does not consider the origin of this difference. Contour decomposition is the only method that does. We extend the contour decomposition method by adding one more dimension that can be used to estimate the contribution of an additional component; e.g., causes of death or educational structure. Methods: We use a step-wise replacement algorithm. Contribution: The proposed discrete method for decomposition is an extension of the earlier general algorithm of stepwise replacement and contour decomposition and permits a difference in an aggregate measure at a final time point to be split into cause-specific additive components that correspond to the initial differences in the event-rates of the measure and differences in trends in these underlying event-rates.

  • Decomposition analysis of disparities in infant mortality rates across 27
           US states (by Benjamin Sosnaud)

    • Abstract: Background: Infant mortality rates (IMRs) vary dramatically across US states. A potential explanation centers on compositional differences in births from sociodemographic groups with a high risk of infant mortality. Objective: I seek to identify the contribution of key compositional factors to state-level disparities in IMRs using a series of Kitagawa–Blinder–Oaxaca decompositions. Methods: Drawing on linked birth–death records for US infants born between 2015 and 2017, I decompose cross-state disparities in IMRs into two components: (1) disparities attributable to differences in the distribution of maternal education, race/ethnicity, and age; and (2) disparities attributable to differences in the association between these sociodemographic characteristics and infant mortality (plus unmeasured compositional differences). I apply this approach to analyze disparities between the US IMR and 27 state IMRs. I then decompose IMR gaps between 630 pairs of states. I use linear regression to explore state-level predictors of variation in the second decomposition component. Results: In 7 of the 18 sample states with IMRs higher than the rest of the United States, led by Louisiana, South Carolina, and Georgia, more than 50% of this disparity can be attributed to the proportion of births from high-risk sociodemographic groups. In 11 high-IMR states, including Oklahoma, Indiana, and Missouri, more than 50% of the disparity is unexplained by the distribution of observed sociodemographic characteristics. The sample also includes nine states with IMRs lower than the rest of the United States. In Colorado, Oregon, and Minnesota, more than 50% of this advantage can be attributed to sociodemographic composition. Conversely, in six states, including New York, New Jersey, and California, the contribution of sociodemographic factors is outweighed by the unexplained decomposition component. Regression analyses show that variation in this component is associated with state differences in contextual predictors. Contribution: Decomposing cross-state differences in IMRs reveals considerable heterogeneity in the contribution of sociodemographic composition. This highlights variability in the social processes that produce disparities in infant mortality across populations.

  • Which definition of migration better fits Facebook ‘expats’' A
           response using Mexican census data (by Tania Varona, Claudia Masferrer,
           Victoria Prieto Rosas, Martín Pedemonte)

    • Abstract: Background: Data from social media have emerged as an auxiliary source for real-time information on migrant populations. Facebook users’ tagged ‘expat’ data – an ‘expat’ being someone who lived in country x but now lives in country y – has been used to estimate immigrants and its quality assessment has relied on household surveys and UNDESA migration estimates. Objective: Using the census as the gold standard and six definitions of migration, we examine differences between the 2020 Mexican Census and Facebook data by national origin, age, and sex. We also examine internet penetration among migrants. Methods: We estimate migration stocks by sex, age, and country of origin for nine Latin American countries, using six definitions of migration available within the census. To evaluate biases of Facebook data, we estimate a series of linear regression models on migrant stocks where our key independent variable is ‘expat,’ and we control for age, sex, and origin, as well as internet penetration rate. Results: Findings suggest that Facebook data are only associated with the definition that identifies recent immigrants according to country of residence five years prior to the census. Facebook’s ‘expat’ variable is indeed capturing recent immigrants that resided in a given country, and not migrants by other definitions using country of birth and country of prior residence, as in long-term migrants or returnees. Contribution: The contributions of this paper are fourfold. In our analysis we (1) evaluate Facebook data quality using the census as the gold standard, (2) compare Facebook data to different migrant definitions, (3) include data on migrant populations’ internet access, and (4) include differences by sex and age.
