Demography: Techniques and Analysis

Asis Kumar Chattopadhyay (Author) Anuj Kumar Saha (Author)

The book covers most of the recent and advanced techniques for estimating demographic parameters for populations with limited and defective data. Direct and indirect estimation techniques to analyse data and estimates are compared, accompanied by illustrative figures. The book has employed these useful techniques relevant to the various demographic components of population change, namely, fertility, mortality, migration and nuptiality, the most neglected component of population change in demography with illustrations that are mostly uncommon in a book at this time. The indirect techniques that have been used in this book in various analyses are termed as "Disaster Rescue".

Consisting of nine chapters, the book starts with the introduction of demography with some fundamental concepts of rates and ratios, concept of stable population, demographic transition, analysis of age distribution by various polynomials along with some usual indices, estimation of mortality parameters and its adjustment by smoothing techniques to get the best possible estimates, and generating life tables based on two independent sets of survival probabilities by Brass Two Parameter Logit Life Tables System, reproductivity, estimation of fertility by Brass-Gompertz Relational Fertility Model, estimation of nuptiality parameters along with an alternative approach different from the recommended one, population projection, migration, and social and occupational mobility that has dealt with some stochastic approaches which will help the readers to understand the necessity for modelling events relating to life under a stochastic set-up as the Markov and semi-Markov models can readily explain many life situations properly.

This book is written in such a way that readers who are moderately knowledgeable in mathematics (including algebra, analytical geometry and calculus) and in stochastic process can understand the subject well. The book provides a complete and self-contained course with clearly presented content accompanied by relevant illustrations. Some notes are given for the readers to understand the problems relating to the use of data.

This book will be of use to students, researchers and teachers interested in demographic research.
