The vital target of many analyses in inhabitants experiences and demography is to give an explanation for cause-effect relationships between variables or occasions. for many years, inhabitants scientists have focused their efforts on estimating the motives of results (e.g. What bills for the decline of fertility premiums? ) via employing ordinary cross-sectional and dynamic regression thoughts, with regression coefficients often being understood as estimates of causal results. the traditional method of infer the results of reasons (e.g. what's the impact of girls s labour strength participation on fertility? ) in traditional sciences and in psychology is to behavior randomised experiments. In inhabitants experiences, experimental designs are unfeasible. however, quasi or common experiments are often played to estimate therapy results. although, so much study relies on non-experimental designs (also referred to as observational or survey designs). Inferring the consequences of factors or remedy results from except experimental facts is difficult. even though, therapy results will be inferred from non-experimental information with a counterfactual process. In this sort of point of view, causal results are outlined because the distinction among the capability consequence regardless of even if someone acquired a undeniable therapy (or skilled a definite cause). The counterfactual method of estimate results of reasons from quasi-experimental facts or from observational reports used to be first proposed through Rubin (1974). different very important contributions contain the paintings of James Heckman and collaborators and of Charles Manski and collaborators.

G. local, urban versus regional, provincial, national, European)? – What are the advantages or disadvantages of the ‘dominant’ or ‘active’ scale (regional governments cannot control legislation, but fits well to an integrated labour market and perhaps even to a regional identity)? – How are these different levels of government playing together? – How is competitiveness translated into specific policy and by whom? – To what degree are non-government actors taking part in policy formulation/ implementation?

Globalisation in the broadest sense refers to the accelerated circulation of people, commodities, capital, identities and images through global space, as well as to the increasing mobility of ideologies, economic principles, policies and lifestyles. Various rounds of immigration undoubtedly have brought with them a number of advantages, in terms of maintaining current levels of employment and of countering the effects of an ageing, stagnant or even declining population. They seem, however, to be overshadowed by problems such as integration, increasing Competitiveness and Cohesion 31 racist and xenophobic attitudes, polarization, exclusion.

Moreover, we are mostly interested in this relation at another level. Whereas at the level of society, competitiveness and cohesion often cohabitate diffusely, it is different at the urban level. It is in cities that trends of social change take more intensive and visible forms, that the tensions of social integration and exclusion are predominantly localized and that new organisational forms originate (Mingione, 2005). Urban social cohesion is changing as a result of the withering away of many features of the traditional city, from rather cultural ones (value patterns, socialising institutions and mechanisms of social control) to more structural ones (neighbourhoods, class structure).
