The Russian Labour Market Through the Prizm of Demography
The Higher School of Economics Publishing House presents the new book by the CLMS "The Russian Labour Market Through the Prizm of Demography" edited by CLMS Director Vladimir Gimpelson and CLMS Deputy Director Rostislav Kapeliushnikov.
Monograph presents a volume of the studies that explore the Russian labour market through the prism of demographic processes and characteristics. It considers multiple macroeconomic effects caused by population aging and offers forecasts for forthcoming labour force contraction and for its impact on the economic growth. Among the topics discussed in the book are the association between workers’ age and wages, behaviour of young and older workers on the labour market, relationships between mating behaviour and income inequality, impact of parenthood on male labour activity, among others. In all chapters the analysis uses large data sets and applies econometric techniques. The Russian situation is considered against the background of major world demographic trends.
The book can be useful for economists, demographers, sociologists, specialists on labour relations, social and demographic policies.
