Collin Payne, GGD alumn, and Michel Guillot, PSC & PARC Research Associate, recently introduced a new way of measuring life expectancy accounting for the historical mortality conditions that today's older generations lived through. Read more about the study in Science Daily and check out the full article published in Population Studies.
Michel Guillot, PSC & PARC Associate, was recently interviewed in Penn Today about a new paper published in Demographic Research. His work examines second-generation immigrants and mortality in France. "This work touches on whether the migrant advantage is transmitted. Here we give an example where it is not transmitted, and not only is it lost, but it's reversed," Guillot stated.
Before winter break Michel Guillot assembled a team of experts to meet about the newly funded NICHD research project Global Age Patterns of Under 5 Mortality. The group is compromised of researchers from institutions across the globe including the United Nations, Johns Hopkins University and the Institut national d'études démographiques (Ined). There will be more information about this project in the coming weeks, but for now be sure to read the project description online here.
