Abstract

Scotland's population is both shrinking and ageing and this poses critical policy challenges for the Scottish Executive. What implications does the changing population have for the Scottish economy? Why is the population in Scotland falling when no other EU country is experiencing a similar decline? What can the government do to influence trends of migration and childbearing, to enable people to have the children they want at the time they want? What will be the impact of a 'greying electorate'?
