Global employment and the sustainable development goals
By Marlene Lee, Hanna Christianson, and Kristin Bietsch

In September 2015, the 193 member states of the United Nations adopted a broad universal development agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals will shape countries’ planning and spending over the next 15 years. The SDGs apply to all countries and actors, including the private sector and civil society, with commitments to tackle poverty, inequality, and climate change.

Demography will have a bearing on whether many of these goals are achieved, particularly Goal 8: Full and productive employment and decent work for all. Factors critical to employment growth emerge throughout the goals, including creation of economic opportunities and basic preparation of a healthy and educated workforce. This Population Bulletin examines the demographic challenges associated with achieving full and productive employment and decent work for all across regions and countries.

Losing ground: young women’s well-being across generations in the United States
By Beth Jarosz and Mark Mather

Gains in American young women’s well-being rose rapidly for members of the Baby Boom generation, but stalled for subsequent generations. Social and structural barriers to young women’s progress have contributed to persistently high poverty rates, a declining share of women in highwage/high-tech jobs, a dramatic rise in women’s incarceration rates, and increases in maternal mortality and women’s suicide.

In this Population Bulletin, PRB provides a broad overview of trends in young women’s social, economic, and physical well-being over the past 50 years. PRB developed a new Index of Young Women’s Well-Being to compare outcomes for present day young women (up to age 34) with young women in previous generations across 14 key social, economic, and health measures. The results show that the progress made by women of the Baby Boom generation (born 1946-1964) has stalled among women of Generation X (born 1965 to 1981) and the Millennial generation (born 1982 to 2002).

Bulletin Family Planning Equity Among Youth: Where Are We Now?
By Elizabeth Leahy Madsen and Charlotte Greenbaum

While the gap in demand satisfied for modern family planning between rich and poor young women is improving, equitable access to family planning is still challenging. Wealth-based inequity remains persistent in most regions of sub-Saharan Africa, even accounting for factors such as educational attainment, urban/rural residence, and age.

PRB’s new Population Bulletin assesses whether demand satisfied for family planning, as a key indicator of universal access to sexual and reproductive health, is equitable among young women ages 15 to 24 in low- and middle-income countries, and to what extent that inequity has changed over time. We consider these questions at the global, regional, and national levels, drawing on survey data from 33 countries. The results show that globally, education and marital status affect demand satisfied for family planning among young women at least as much as wealth. Further, increases in contraceptive use, rather than decreases in unmet need, have been the primary factor driving recent improvements in demand satisfied among young women.
