Dr. Martin Spielauer

Martin Spielauer is a demographer with a background in economics, statistics and computer science.
He works as a research scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Germany and is the coordinator of the Contextual Database Working Group of the United Nations Generations & Gender program.
Until September 2003 he was the leader of the socio-economic research department of the Austrian Institute for Family Studies and member of the European Observatory on the Social Situation, Demography and Family.
His recent research activities focus on intergenerational educational transmission and the impact of education on partnership formation and childbearing.
A related research interest of Martin Spielauer lies in dynamic microsimulation as means of synthesis of models of different socio-demographic behaviors to comprehensive simulation models used for socio-demographic projections.
