Example text

The GIP-method estimates these parameters, given the constraints, by minimizing a penalty function which contains three terms: one for the relative deviations in estimated and observed deaths, one for the deviations in the age structure at time T and a third one with period-to-period fluctuations in the migration scale parameter. Thus, the method obtains an optimal fit of the model to the data on deaths and final age structure, while at the same time the migration parameter changes as little as possible.

These trends raise issues beyond simple dependency or generational accounting – who is taxed to pay for whom – but also requires a factoring of investment strategies. In particular there is a need to set priorities, between for example investment on age group 15–29 years, to form the human capital to help the economy grow and thus to be able to sustain ageing, or on the maintenance of services directed to 60–74 year olds. The age-structural transitions also affect/are affected by policies that propose demographic responses to ageing: increased migration and fertility.

Similarly, since the current age structure is the net result of historical age-specific fertility, mortality and migration, we are unable to infer the levels of the components of change from the age structure alone. Extra information is needed, for instance: 1. The population is closed to migration. 2. Fertility and mortality rates have been constant for a long time. 3. Growth rates are the same for each age group and they are independent of time. 4. Growth rates are constant in time, but differ between age groups.
