Tom Vogl: Differential Fertility, Human Capital, & Development
Farley, Reynolds. 2010. "Michigan's Demographic Outlook: Implications for the University of Michigan." PSC Research Report No. 10-699. April 2010.
This paper, a presentation to the Officers and Regents of the University of Michigan in early 2010, provides an historical perspective to changes in Michigan's population, and how they impact the University of Michigan. Demographic shifts in Michigan, particularly since the 1970s, have altered the state's employment rates, population growth, representation in Congress, and college enrollment patterns. Farley also looks at the future for the state in terms of employment and economic opportunities, and demographic growth.
Country of focus: United States.
