Research Interests

Johannes Huinink´s research interests lie in the fields of theoretical model building and empirical research in Sociology. He started his academic career with conceptual work on issues of Methematical Sociology (modelling social processes an sociological multi-level analysis) and empirical research methods as well as methods of sociological data analysis. In regard to substantive research topics he focused on questions of demographic development using data from vital statistics. He particularly investigated fertility patterns and their chnage between cohorts. He broadend this cohort analytical research agenda moving to life course analysis and using individual level information from retrospctive surveys and panel studies. Research fields are now family dynamics, migration, occupational careers, and  social mobility. Combining the life course approach and sociological model building he also is working on an action theoretic based approach of life course theory.
