Understanding Suicidal Ideation among Adolescents of North East India through the Lens of Demographic Factors

Demografie, 64(4): 297–308

This paper attempts to identify the demographic variables that are related to suicidal ideation among adolescents in Tripura, India. Although the current literature points a grim picture of the suicide rate worldwide and in India as well, there is insufficient research in this area in India, especially in Tripura. Adding to the small body of research on suicidal ideation, the current study was conducted on a sample of 500 adolescents aged between 16 and 18 years (266 boys and 234 girls). The study found a high suicidal ideation rate of 9.6% among adolescents in Tripura, India. The gender, area of residence, substance use, and family environment of adolescents were found to have an effect on suicidal ideation. The highest rate of suicidal ideation was observed among boys (i.e. male gender), adolescents residing in urban areas, substance users, and adolescents living in a non-peaceful family environment. Community, the number of children in the family, family type, and family income were not significantly associated with suicidal ideation. Despite this, high suicidal ideation was reported by non-tribal persons, people who were an only child, nuclear families, and adolescents with a family income of 11 000 – 20 000 INR (Indian Rupees) per month.

The Post-War Population Conscripition in Slovakia in 1946
Demografie, 64(4): 313–326

The post-war situation in former Czechoslovakia was complicated. Suitable, reliable, and up-to-date data needed to address several urgent social problems were largely lacking. In 1946, more than 15 years had passed since the last population census 1930, and because of the major social changes and mass population transfers that had occurred in that time, it was not possible to make important decisions based on the previous census. Since for various reasons it was not possible to carry out a new population census in the first months and years after the Second World War, the decision was made to prepare an alternative solution in the form of two independent post-war population counts/enumerations with different content and conducted at different times. In this article, we focus on the first of these two population counts, which was conducted on the territory of Slovakia in 1946. This article primarily sets out to identify the main purpose of the post-war population count/enumeration in Slovakia in 1946, the method used to implement it, the content of the data it produced, and their processing and publication.

The Trend in the Number of Care Allowance Beneficiaries in the Czech Republic in 2007-2021

Demografie, 64(4): 327–334

A new law on social services was adopted 15 years ago that significantly changed the system used to finance these services. A care allowance was designed that is paid to persons who, due to a long-term adverse health condition, need the help of another person in taking care of themselves and ensuring their own self-sufficiency. The aim of this contribution is to characterise the trend in the number of recipients of this social benefit in the years 2007–2021, and to compare this trend with projection data on care allowance recipients and outline the possibilities of further development in this area.

The First Results for the Population Characteristics of the 2021 Census in Czechia

Demografie, 64(4): 335–352

The first results of the 2021 Census in Czechia were released in January 2022. The nationwide census was prepared in a combined form using both a census questionnaire and suitable administrative data sources. The aim of this paper is to analyse the data on population characteristics that were published until August 2022 – sex, age, marital status, educational attainment, citizenship, ethnicity, mother tongue, religious belief, and fertility. Where useful the variables are combined with sex/age structure. A basic comparison with data from the 2011 Census was also done. The population of Czechia increased by less than 1% and has grown older between the 2011 and the 2021 Census. The share of the population with higher levels of education continued to increase and 4.7% of the population in the 2021 Census were foreign nationals.
