The Italian demographic transition in microanalytic perspective. Socio-economic change and mortality decline.

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The main object of the research is the study of mortality trends in Italy between the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. The research is based on individual-level data and life-course histories of an Emilian community, typical example of the transition from a rural-oriented economy to the first phase of industrialization.
We will collect, link and elaborate data to reconstruct the life-histories, utlizing data from parish registers, civil population registers and vital event registrations, as well as census records. The use of micro-level data and life-course approaches, where individual trajectories interplay and interact with family structures and context factors, would allow the evaluation, in a multidimensional perspective, of the relative weight of all the factors influencing life duration. It might be possible to pick out the influence of the socio-economic components on mortality trends, still little examined for mid-long periods.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
