By differentiating the human population not only by age and sex – as is conventionally done in demographic projections – but also by different levels of educational attainment the most fundamental aspects of human development and social change are being explicitly addressed through modeling the changing composition of populations by these three important individual characteristics. The definitions of assumptions about future fertility, mortality, migration and education trends are based on a major new projections effort by the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital (IIASA, Austrian Academy of Sciences and WU-Vienna
University of Economics) involving more than 600 experts from around the world.
