LIPRO: A Multistate Household Projection Model

  • Evert van Imhoff
Part of the The Plenum Series on Demographic Methods and Population Analysis book series (PSDE)


This chapter describes the construction of a very general, dynamic household model called LIPRO, based on the insights of multidimensional demography, and applies this model to trace the present and the future household situation in the Netherlands. The model classifies individuals by eleven household positions, corresponding to seven household types. These household positions are specified in such a way that a projection of individuals by household position can easily be transformed into a projections of households by household type.
