Our video guest: Wolfgang Lutz

Our video guest this week is Wolfgang Lutz. Prof. Wolfgang Lutz is leader of the World Population Program of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), director of the Vienna Institute of Demography (VID) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and Professor of Applied Statistics at the WU-Vienna and Professorial Research Fellow at Oxford University. On the occasion of his intervention at the Brussels Development Briefing on population growth and its implications for rural areas in ACP countries, Mr. Wolfgang Lutz explained to us his approach to demographic statistics. He proposed a qualitative approach  that includes also education as a third variable to the traditional variables of age and gender of the population. Mr. Wolfgang Lutz insisted on the crucial role that female education plays in elevating developing countries from poverty towards development.
