FAIR vocabularies, which allow machines to associate data with concepts, can save researchers hours of tedious work by automating processes of data discovery and harmonization.  The report introduces readers to international standards for documenting data (metadata) that underlie international infrastructures for producing and disseminating demographic data, and it recommends enhancing these services through application of the FAIR principles.
Good mental health is a vital part of people’s well-being, and the COVID-19 pandemic brought renewed attention to its importance. However, discussions so far have not focused sufficiently on how governments should best monitor it at the broader population level, and on how to consider both mental ill-health and positive mental states. This report supports national statistical offices and other data producers in collecting high-quality measures of population mental health outcomes in a more frequent, consistent and internationally harmonised manner.
This policy briefing describes Ukrainians’ perspectives of depopulation collected using online focus groups in July 2021, seven months before the current invasion. Discussions were compared from eastern Ukraine, including in rural villages, the city of Mariupol, the large city of Kharkiv and occupied Donetsk. Participants observed that cities were growing at the expense of rural areas.
The 2023 report on gender equality in the EU is the third report under the Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025. The report takes stock of where the EU and its Member States stand on gender equality. It highlights the EU’s achievements in the five key areas covered by the strategy and gives inspiring examples from the Member States and EU-funded projects in these areas.
Ukraine's population future after the Russian Invasion
This report analyses the effect of the Russian Invasion on the longer-term future of Ukraine’s population size and structure. The qualitative scenarios spanning a range of possible migration futures are translated into quantitative population projections using a multistate population model which shows the evolution of the size and age-sex composition of Ukraine’s population up to 2052.
