This volume clearly outlines the methods used to study population structure and change by presenting the major descriptive and analytical models developed by demographers to investigate the interrelationships between fertility, age, structure, and mortality. With illustrations, tables, and data drawn from a wide range of countries in both the developed and developing world, METHODS AND MODELS IN DEMOGRAPHY explicates the potential uses and limitations of the current models for population analysis, estimation, and forecasting.
