Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Based on lecture notes used by Kpedekpo at a number of African universities, this textbook for undergraduates provides an introduction to techniques of demographic analysis. Its twelve chapters are broad in coverage and address such topics as sources of population data; rates of fertility, mortality, and population growth; age and sex standardization; life table analysis; marriage and nuptiality; internal and international migration; methods for projecting population size and structure; stable and quasi-stable population theory; and methods for coping with deficient data. Numerous tables, charts, and worked examples help to illustrate demographic principles and techniques. An index is also included.
