On the basis of the results of the 1984 Voorburg workshop mentioned in chapter 1, several years ago Keilman and Keyfitz sketched a number of elements of a research strategy “which should ultimately lead to a better performance and therefore a greater usefulness of household models” (Keilman and Keyfitz 1988). Since then, some of Keilman and Keyfitz’ wishes have been fulfilled, or have at least shown considerable progress, while other components have been neglected or have until now proved to be resistant against research ingenuity.
