Spatial Aspects of University Graduates in Slovakia

Pubblicato online: 23 Jan 2017
Pagine: 26 - 34

Astratto

Abstract

University and college graduates do not represent just a highly skilled workforce. They are holders of a high level of education and they serve also as a component of human capital that have a high potential for increase productivity, create new jobs and discover new innovative production processes. This contribution deals with the concentration and dispersion of the production of university and college graduates of master level studies in Slovak cities, as holders of a high level of human capital. Examined were 41 of 46 fields of master level studies, which were assigned to 6 groups of studies. Within the overall production of graduates, there was observed a dispersion of production, because during the observed time period, between 1997 and 2015, the competition between cities in generating graduates of master level studies has increased. Within the production of individual groups of studies, the evolution was not so clear. In some groups of studies, the production of master level graduates has concentrated over the observed period time, in other groups the production has dispersed and in one group of studies the situation has not changed.

Will Distance to the Capital City Matter When Supplying New Cities in Egypt?

Pubblicato online: 23 Jan 2017
Pagine: 35 - 52

Astratto

Abstract

Unlike other developing countries, the housing market in Egypt is characterized by densely populated urban areas in old cities and the peripheral urban agglomeration. In contrast, a high rate of vacancy along most of the new cities that have been established since the 1980s is seen. Regardless of such high rate of vacancies, still the variation in occupancy rates among those new cities is notable. Questions arising include: Does proximity to old cities or Greater Cairo affect the size of the population of the new cities? Is the size of the city or the year of establishment plays roles in attracting more inhabitants? The factors of spatial characteristics of new cities in Egypt remain questionable. This research aims to reveal the association between occupancy rate and six factors related to the spatial characteristics of new cities and their geographical locations, such as; current inhabitants, the estimated size of the target group, the size of new cities, total number of housing units, distance to nearby old city, and distance to Greater Cairo.

Population Development and its Typology in the Czech Republic at the Level of Micro-regions

Pubblicato online: 23 Jan 2017
Pagine: 53 - 61

Astratto

Abstract

The contribution mainly focuses on monitoring of the population development in the Czech Republic, particularly at the micro-regional level. It monitors development of the natural population change, migration, and overall population development in two monitored periods, and conducts SO ORP typology based on this development with respect to the natural population change, migration, and overall increase. Today, the migration in the developed regions is the determinative element of the population development. To put it simply, the determinative division of the migration population development is into two units (east and west zone, Moravia and Bohemia), where Moravia has negative migration and Bohemia sees positive migration; however, there are significant differences in the middle of the units where Brno metropolitan area has highly positive migration, especially from the rest of Moravia and Silesia, and on the contrary, Karlovy Vary region sees significantly negative migration; over the last years, the negative migration has been relatively higher compared to Moravia-Silesia Region. The micro-regions at SO ORP level assist us in distinguishing of continuous territories with either positive or negative population development.

Motives and barriers of migration to Saxony: the case of migrating health professionals from Czechia

Pubblicato online: 23 Jan 2017
Pagine: 62 - 77

Astratto

Abstract

The regime change in the former German Democratic Republic and its reunification with the Federal Republic of Germany at the beginning of 1990s launched significant social and economic changes which resulted i.a. in high out-migration rate and secondary also rapid demographic ageing of the populations of the states of former Eastern Germany including Saxony. As a consequence, there is a lack of health professionals in Saxon hospitals which is going to be solved by the in-migration of medical staff from abroad. The geographical location of the Federal state of Saxony predetermines representatives of Saxon hospitals to look for missing health care labour in Czechia and latest statistics demonstrate that this could be a successful way to stabilize or even increase the personnel numbers of Saxon health care providers. The aim of this article is not only to bring some basic data about the migration of Czech health professionals to Germany, but especially to focus on processes which facilitate or hinder such kind of mobility, influence the rate of success of their integration both into the work team and German society and form the prospects of their permanent stay in Germany. Ten interviews with Czech health professionals were conducted in order to fulfill these ambitions. As a result, crucial barriers and recommendations for improvements concerning the migration decision making, their integration and sustaining in the migratory destination are presented.
