The Journal of Demographic Economics (JODE) is a quarterly journal published by Cambridge University Press.

The primary objective of the Journal of Demographic Economics (JODE) is to promote much-needed research in the field of study that lies at the intersection of economics and population studies.

Responding to some of the important challenges facing today's world, this fast-growing field addresses a number of key questions. How should the developed world cope with population ageing? When will the very poorest countries begin to see a demographic transition? Should global migration be encouraged? What are the implications of the fast family transformations we presently observe?

An analysis of these questions requires an understanding of economic incentives, which are in turn influenced by demographic changes and trends. It follows that research with a strong methodological discipline that exploits the complementarities between theory and empirics, and between demography and economics, will be an important focus for JODE.
