Thematic Conference

Technological Change, Digitalization and Life Course Inequalities

Technological change has major implications for social inequality. Most of the research focuses on changes in skill requirements and labor market transformations. Yet, digitalization, more than ever before, has the potential to impact inequalities across a wide range of life domains and for different groups in society. This workshop aims to connect researchers to discuss the most important developments and challenges that digitalization has for inequality. The aim is to stimulate and cross-fertilize research on digitalization and inequality regarding various dimensions of the life course and life periods/stages, across various institutional settings. Example questions are: Are gender inequalities intensified or alleviated by technological changes? Do digital technologies foster family relations across generations? What are the implications of changes in skill requirements at work for the reproduction of social inequality? Can elderly benefit from technological advancements or are they left behind? How doesdigitalization impact ethnic inequalities and segregation (e.g., language barriers, labor market integration)?

This workshop encourages contributions on the following topics (but not limited to)

  • Labor market inequality;
  • Family relations;
  • Gender inequality;
  • Cognitive and noncognitive skills;
  • Educational inequality;
  • Work-life interferences;
  • Well-being;
  • Civic and democratic participation

With the increasing availability of longitudinal data, researchers need to decide the best models for their data.

A wide variety of models have been proposed, many of which are available using Structural Equation Models (SEM).  This course will review some of the major longitudinal SEMs.  Among others this will include autoregressive/crosslag models, latent growth curve models, and Autoregressive Latent Trajectory (ALT) models.  The workshop will present each type of model and illustrate their estimation and fit with empirical data.

Some knowledge of SEMs is assumed.

Ken A. Bollen is the Henry Rudolph Immerwahr Distinguished Professor in the Department of Sociology and the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at UNC at Chapel Hill.  He is a faculty member in the Quantitative Psychology Program in the Thurstone Psychometric Laboratory.  He also is chair of the Methods Core and a Fellow of the Carolina Population Center and a Faculty member of the Center for Developmental Science. Since 1980 he has been an instructor in the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research. Bollen's primary areas of statistical research are in structural equation models, longitudinal methods, and latent growth curve models.
