Key Demographic Information for Each Country in the World
the past, we published a series of regional reports that focused largely
on the demographic underpinnings of economic development. The
core of those reports was an extensive display of the key demographic
and selected economic indicators for many countries. That coverage has
now been expanded to include every country in the world and is available
in a user-friendly manner via this website. More significantly, the internet
now allows us to offer the ability for the user to directly compare two
countries, a country versus a region, or two regions. When you are interested
in viewing what is available as well as getting a first hand feel of
the functionality, please click the PREVIEW tab above. As before, we
will continue to provide support for special data requests.
We continue to maintain our unique value-added
approach that we pioneered in the application of demographics to economic
financial market forecasting.
Besides the text for our regional reports included on this website,
we have also just published a study entitled “The
United States Is Not the Next Japan”. We are currently
working on the issue of “Is
There a Housing Bubble in the US?” All of the analysis that
we have seen to date on this issue has ignored the ongoing shifts in
mosaic, shifts that are critical to understanding the real fundamentals
of housing. Following the housing piece, we intend to publish a comprehensive
study on China.
In our view, much of the current confusion regarding consumer markets
in China is dispelled with a proper incorporation of
its radically different demographics. Relative to current expectations,
China’s development will result in many unanticipated surprises.
In many ways, this website is the culmination of
my long-held desire to provide a one stop demographically focused resource
site for financial
as well as nonfinancial clients around the world. But I view this current
site as a beginning not an end. Besides new reports, our plans for expansion
value-added insights on the consumer, consumer-related activities
(e.g. housing) and labor markets. This was a critical component
of my analysis in my role as Chief Economist at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette.
Current and ongoing changes in the demographic mosaic have been a major
reason for my continued optimism regarding consumer spending. At least
initially, this analysis will focus principally on the US. This will
be a real time display that is refreshed as new information is released.
As time and resources permit, we will consider extending this analysis
to other countries of interest.
