A study of twenty industrialized countries https://journals.library.ualberta.ca/csp/index.php/csp/article/view/29355 <p>A shift in population distribution toward older ages is underway in industrialized countries throughout the world, and will continue well into the future. We provide a framework for isolating the pure effects of population aging on per capita GDP, employ the framework in calculations for twenty OECD countries, and derive the rates of productivity growth required to offset those effects. Taking the twenty countries as a whole, the average productivity growth rate (a simple unweighted arithmetic average) required to just offset aging effects over the full 30 years from 2015 to 2045 would be 4.2 per cent per decade, or approximately 0.4 per cent per year; to achieve an overall increase of 1 per cent in GDP per capita would require an average rate of 15.1 per cent per decade, or 1.4 per cent per year. We consider also some labour-related changes that might provide offsets, for comparison with productivity.</p> Frank T.

The central question examined is whether RBC is possible in the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC) as they proceed toward the 2020 round of census. The secondary question is whether, for the GCC countries, the e-governance approach offers a viable alternative to the classical Scandinavian approach to RBC.</p><p>L’article traite de l’expérience de pays scandinaves en matière de recensement à registre (RR); il donne les importantes caractéristiques qui permettent de faciliter ce genre de système de comptabilité en Scandinavie. La question centrale qui y est examinée consiste à déterminer si le RR est possible dans les pays du Conseil de coopération du Golfe (CCG) en vue du prochain recensement de 2020. L’autre question consiste notamment à savoir si, pour les pays du CCG, l’approche d’une gouvernance électronique fournit une solution de rechange viable à l’approche scandinave classique au RR.</p> Sulaiman Bah Jaffar Mansour ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2018-08-30 2018-08-30 45 3-4 132 38 10.25336/csp29349 Model-Based Demography: Essays on Integrating Data, Technique and Theory https://journals.library.ualberta.ca/csp/index.php/csp/article/view/29401 <p>by Thomas K.

Kline’s Principles and Practice of Structural Equation Modeling: Encouraging a fifth edition https://journals.library.ualberta.ca/csp/index.php/csp/article/view/2016-K <p>Principles and Practice of Structural Equation Modeling, 4th edition<br />Rex B. Kline<br />New York: The Guilford Press 2016<br />ISBN 978-1-4625-2334-4<br />Softcover, US$65, 534 pp.</p><p>Kline’s fourth edition is reasonably strong but improvable. The text aims to introduce newcomers to fundamental structural equation modeling (SEM) principles, but tends to confuse “Principles” with “Rules.” Rules having insufficient grounding in principles leave readers ill-prepared for understanding and responding to changes in previously traditional “rules”—such as those concerning model testing, and latents having single indicators. SEM’s foundations would be clearer if Kline began by presenting structural equation models as striving to represent causal effects—a commitment that differentiates structural equation models from regression and encourages model testing. I begin this review by summarizing the covariance/correlation implications of three simple causal structures, which pinpoints multiple text improvements and underpins the discussions of measurement and model testing that follow. Causal structuring also grounds my later comments regarding modelling means/intercepts and interactions. A file of Supplementary Sections expands on several points and lists multiple editorial corrections you might pencil into your copy of Kline’s text.</p> Leslie Hayduk ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2018-08-30 2018-08-30 45 3-4 154 87 10.25336/csp29397 Response to Leslie Hayduk’s Review of Principles and Practice of Structural Equation Modeling, 4th Edition https://journals.library.ualberta.ca/csp/index.php/csp/article/view/29418 this issue, Review Essay Rex B.
