Call for Papers: Subjective Well-being and Demography at PAA 2017

Posted: 2/21/2017 (Conference)

This workshop is organized by the IUSSP Scientific Panel on Subjective Well-being and Demographic Events as a pre-conference side meeting at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Population Association of America, taking place in Chicago, 27-29 April 2017. The workshop will take place from 1 to 6 pm on the afternoon before the PAA Welcome Mixer, on Wednesday, 26 April  2017.

With the ever increasing research interest in subjective well-being, also in demography, the purpose of the workshop is to establish a forum for academics to present their papers on subjective well-being and demographic processes. Priority will be given to papers that are not otherwise presented at the PAA conference. The workshop will take a broad and inclusive perspective. We welcome papers and research ideas/projects that consider subjective well-being either as a driver or an outcome, comparative or longitudinal (or both), developing or developed countries, and also papers of a more methodological nature (both in terms of statistical analysis, measurement and theory).

The workshop provides on opportunity for presentation of 6/7 research papers within the topics listed above.

The session will conclude with a round-table discussion organized by the IUSSP Panel.

Submissions:

You may submit a paper for consideration by the Programme Committee by Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at http://iussp.org/en/iussp-seminar-submissions.
