For the municipal profile of the above-mentioned project system, the municipalities need quantitative statistical data as well as qualitative data in order to have a basis for the next steps of the strategy development. These municipal profiles are to be compiled by the contractor. The municipalities that participated in the DWK already have municipal profiles that should be updated by the contractor. In a municipal profile, information on the initial situation and on previous processes and initiatives can be bundled as an inventory and made accessible both to the actors of the municipality concerned and to interested citizens. In particular, the bullet-point SWOT analysis, in which the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats are formulated from the collected data and information in a one- to two-page overview, represents a valuable working basis for the derivation of further steps and measures for action.(https://www.demografiewerkstatt-kommunen.de/werkzeugkoffer/kommunalprofil)Partial revision of 8 existing municipal profiles from the DWK and creation of up to 32 new municipal profiles of the municipalities participating in the ZWK project.
Demographic change is a social megatrend and thus also a central, demanding task for municipalities. Demographic change also includes the heterogenization of society through migration. The future viability of a municipality depends to a large extent on the extent to which it succeeds in sustainably shaping demographic change on the ground and, in doing so, involves all age groups in their life situations and in their diversity in a participatory manner.Successful integration as one of the key factors of demographic change helps to reduce prejudices and contributes to the promotion of democracy. A strategy geared solely to labour market and economic policy falls short of what is needed for a future-oriented, attractive municipality. The focus must be on the accessibility and quality of services of general interest, future opportunities for young people and young families, and the integration of immigrants. In order to remain or become more attractive for all generations in all phases of life and for the economy, and to take into account the needs of senior citizens, young people, people with limited financial resources or physical limitations and new immigrants, innovative local solutions are required, especially in structurally weak regions. For structurally weak areas are by no means the same, but are heterogeneous both in their prerequisites and in their previous strategies.In the years 2016-2020, the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ) carried out the model project "Demografiewerkstatt Kommunen" (DWK), which supported municipalities in coping with demographic change. In this context, a system was developed that promotes the development and creation of a demographic strategy.2021 will see the launch of a new model project, the "Future Workshop Municipalities - Attractive in Change" (ZWK), which will focus on issues of integration in the context of demographic change and will follow the same form of development. However, the municipalities are free to choose their own topics. Like the DWK (https://www.demografiewerkstatt-kommunen.de/), the ZWK is therefore based on three central pillars of action:- external advice for the municipalities,- five-stage project system (consisting of kick-off, municipal profile, future workshop, workshop plan and interim balance sheet),- individual freedom of the municipalities to choose their own topics within the framework of the project objectives.The task: drawing up or revising the municipal profilesFor the municipal profile of the above-mentioned project system, the municipalities need quantitative statistical data as well as qualitative data in order to have a basis for the next steps in strategy development. These municipal profiles are to be compiled by the contractor. The municipalities that participated in the DWK already have municipal profiles that should be updated by the contractor. In a municipal profile, information on the initial situation and on previous processes and initiatives can be bundled as an inventory and made accessible both to the actors of the municipality concerned and to interested citizens. In particular, the bullet-point SWOT analysis, in which the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats from the collected data and information are formulated in a one to two page overview, represents a valuable working basis for the derivation of further steps and measures for action.(https://www.demografiewerkstatt-kommunen.de/werkzeugkoffer/kommunalprofil)The examination of the various demographic-relevant topics raises the awareness of the actors for the topic, creates synergy effects and can promote the exchange between the various departments in a concrete and intensive manner. The collection of data and information can establish new forms of interdepartmental cooperation (initiation of working groups, round tables, etc.).Intended survey designThe analysis is to be conceived as a two-part survey design.a) A secondary analysis of already existing data, in particular:- demographic-relevant statistical data, as well as- studies, concepts and data available to the municipality.b) Analysis of primary data to be collected individually in the form of qualitative interviews with local representatives of the municipalities.),-- Number of inhabitants,-- Area/population density,-- Type of municipality according to BBSR,-- Demographic type (according to Bertelsmann),-- Geographical characteristics,- Demographic development:-- Population development,-- Migration movements,-- Age distribution,-- Births and deaths,-- Proportion of foreign nationals,-- Proportion of people with a migration background,-- Population forecast,- Local education provision:-- Pre-school facilities,-- Types of schools,-- Pupil numbers/school-leaving qualifications,-- Other educational institutions,-- Forecast on the continued existence of schools,-- Meeting the demand for educational provision,- Economic situation:-- Employees subject to social security contributions,-- Commuter balance,-- Gross domestic product,-- Unemployment figures,-- Recipients of transfer payments,- Housing situation and local supply:-- Development of housing stock,-- Proportion of barrier-free housing,-- Household structure,-- Fit between supply and demand,-- Vacancy rate,-- Assessment of local supply,- Health care:-- Persons in need of care,-- Development of outpatient and inpatient care supply,-- Medical care,-- Forecast on the future security of medical care.Within the framework of the qualitative interviews, the results of the above-mentioned dimensions are to be supplemented. It would also be desirable to obtain assessments of special municipality-specific characteristics and unique selling points of the respective municipality. The following additional points should be surveyed:Previous measures and projects in the field of demography and integration:-- Existing working structures, committees and actors,-- Previous activities for demographic consolidation,-- Objectives and priorities of previous demographic work,-- Previous integration measures,-- Commitment and participation, opportunities for participation.Further information (without claim to completeness) on:-- Cultural offerings,-- Transport connections,-- Digital supply,-- Special features/developments with regard to ecology and climate change.The qualitative interviews should also contain assessments of the interviewees here and thus support the SWOT analysis.The above-mentioned descriptive dimensions should be considered at the municipal level as far as possible. Where this is not possible due to the data situation, the next highest level of observation (e.g. city/county) should be selected for each dimension. It is to be expected that the quality of the data available from the municipalities will vary greatly.For each descriptive dimension, a meaningful temporal reference frame should be selected. As a guideline, this should be the last 10 years for a retrospective view and the next 20 years for forecasts.- Partial revision of 8 existing municipal profiles from the DWK and creation of up to 32 new municipal profiles of the municipalities participating in the ZWK project. Conducting 3-4 qualitative interviews with representatives of local government, politics, civil society and/or the private sector (e.g. mayors, members of local councils, representatives of associations) who are relevant to the individual case. Participation in 3 coordination meetings with the office of the ZWK/steering group for work planning and discussion of interim results (if necessary, also online). Presentation of the results of the municipal profiles in the context of a reflection workshop with representatives of the municipality and documentation of the discussion results,- Summary of the respective results as a municipal profile based on an outline provided by the office of the ZWK,- Preparation of a synopsis to obtain an overview of the participating municipalities.
