The UN recently issued official probabilistic population projections for all countries
for the first time, using a Bayesian hierarchical framework developed by our University
of Washington group. These take account of uncertainty about future fertility and
mortality, but not international migration. Raftery proposes a Bayesian hierarchical
autoregressive model for projecting migration rates for all countries, broken down
by age and sex. Raftery resolve a paradoxical discrepancy between growth trends in
the proportion of the world population migrating and the average absolute migration
rate across countries.
Adrian Raftery is also a member of the National Academy of Sciences, a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, an Honorary Member of the Royal Irish Academy, a Fellow of the American Statistical Association, and an elected Member of the Sociological Research Association.
