5th GGP User Conference || Paris – October 24-25 2019



The Generations and Gender Programme, in collaboration with INED and the IUSSP, is delighted to announce the 5th GGP Conference to be held 24-25 October 2019 in Paris. This international conference aims to bring together researchers working with data from the Generations and Gender Survey and invites them to present and discuss their most recent methodological approaches and empirical findings. The conference provides a forum for exchange of ideas among current as well as prospective GGP users, policy makers and the research community at large. Abstracts of papers focusing on – but not limited to – the following topics are welcome:


  • Demographic behaviours of subpopulations and different social groups
  • Social mobility and inequalities
  • Division of paid and unpaid work
  • Cohabitation, union formation and dissolution
  • Subjective well-being and demographic outcomes
  • Labour market and economic well-being
  • Fertility intentions and their realization
  • Data quality and validation, methodological considerations in studying demographic behaviour
  • Intergenerational links and transfers
  • Survey methods and implementation

Special session(s) on complementary data sources

For this 5th instalment of the GGP Conference, we also invite submission of papers using data sources that compliment or are similar to those in the GGP, including (but not limited to) the DHS, the FFS, and the HFD. We also encourage submission of papers combining the Gender and Generations Survey with other sources of data.


Papers can be submitted for oral or poster presentation and there will be a prize for the best poster.  There is no fee for the conference but places are limited. Authors will be notified in mid-June about the outcome of their submission.

Note that each participant can be first author on only one paper or poster. There will also be a Data Visualization workshop on 22-23 October, details of which can be found here.
