Principal areas of research and its outcomes

  • Trends of demographic processes in Ukraine in 1900s – 2010s:

The methodology was worked out and reconstruction of demographic dynamics of Ukraine was accomplished for the period of 1950s through the beginning of 21st century as information base for in-depth transverse and cohort analysis of demographic processes in Ukraine and study of their volatility. Dynamics of population, trends of demographic processes in Ukraine for the period of 1950s through the beginning of 21st century were correlated to the phenomenon of demographic waves as a symptom of volatility and their consequences for human development were determined.  The main socio-demographic events happened before the contemporary age-sex structure were analyzed on the basis of reconstruction of demographic dynamics.  

  • Forecasting of medical and social consequences of aging of population in Ukraine:

Connection was proven between the features of demographic development in developed countries, such as low birth-rate, low death-rate, high life interval, with human development and expanding the freedom of choice, in the sphere of people’s own reproduction, in particular. The consequences of population explosion in the developing countries are impossible to overcome without human development, expanding rights and opportunities for women, and overcoming poverty.  Sustainable human development will be ensured by equitable distribution of resources and responsibilities across generations and mitigation of inter-generation inequality.
