From Revival to Reversal: Trajectories and Forecasts of Russia's Population Growth 2000-2050

From 2007 to 2014, Russia enjoyed unprecedented demographic success. The abysmal fertility rates of the 1990s were left behind and Russia experienced some of the the largest fertility improvements anywhere in Europe. With falling mortality rates and economic-growth driven immigration, Russia's decline in population ended, and 2013 actually saw a net increase in Russia's total population. However, the current economic crisis is leading to policies that will likely lead to a reversal of these gains. The speakers presented new data and forecasts for Russia's population, and discussed various related social policies.
