The annual conference 2018 of the German Society for Demography (DGD) is held in collaboration with the Netherlands Demographic Society (NVD). The primary focus of the conference is the relationship between family behavior, fertility and intergenerational relationships. Questions that are to be addressed in this conference are: How did family and fertility behavior change across generations? How do parents’ and children’s fertility behavior, child preferences and partnership dynamics relate to each other? [...]
To understand population change, it is not sufficient to know what life choices individuals and families make. We need to understand how choices are made. Critical choices in life, such as the choice to marry, to have a child, to migrate, to retire or to end the life course, are outcomes of cognitive processes. The processes involve substantial risk and uncertainty. They consist of stages and each stage takes time. Life choices have far-reaching consequences. Because of them, people’s lives and biographies are diverse, and population change is colourful but complex. [...]

Economic consequences of career breaks by gender and age
To better understand the consequences of career breaks within the scope of governmental schemes to support a better work-life balance, research so far has mainly focused on the effects of parental leave for women and gender gaps in wage differentials. Mortelmans and Frans (2017) go beyond these shortcomings by examining the impact of career breaks on the income of both men and women, and across the life course. [...]

What drives Europeans to continue working after retirement age?
In European countries, working retirees form a relatively new group in the workforce. The so-called “bridge employment” that allows seniors to have paid work while simultaneously receiving their pension benefits is often seen as a resource to counteract the effects of ageing societies. In a new study, Ellen Dingemens, Kène Henkens and Hanna van Solinge explored the individual and societal factors that may affect participation in the labour force after retirement. [...]
