Family growth in metropolitan America, by Charles F. Westoff [et al.] by Charles F Westoff( Book )

5 editions published in 1961 in English and French and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This analysis is based upon a study of 1,165 couples, all of whom had two children by the time of the interviews and lived in one of the Standard Metropolitan Areas. Its findings shed new light on the relationship between fertility-planning behavior and such variables as socio-economic status, social mobility aspirations, adherence to traditional values, interest in religion, marital adjustment, amount of education, and feelings of personal adequacy. A resurvey is planned for three years later, to analyze subsequent attitudes and behavior. Originally published in 1961.

De nadruk wordt gelegd op het verband tusschen de wederopbouw en de richting waarin het bevolkingsvraagstuk zich in de komende decennia (vermoedelijk) zal ontwikkelen. De demografische factoren zullen, evenals in het verleden, in de nabije toekomst de maatschappelijke, economische en staatkundige constellatie ten zeerste beïnvloeden
Europe's population in the interwar years by Dudley Kirk( Book )

16 editions published between 1946 and 1968 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dit boekdeel van Prof. Dudley Kirk is het laatste van een serie van vier, welke voor de Volkenbond is samengesteld door het "Office of Population Research of Princeton University". Het geeft een overzicht van de Europese bevolking, aan de hand van de volkstellingen en de andere statistische bronnen van de tussenoorlogse periode. Daarnaast analyseert het de demographische evolutie van dit werelddeel in het licht van de tendenties van het verleden en van de verwachtingen voor de toekomst. Terwijl het oorspronkelijk de bedoeling was een demographische atlas van Europa te vervaardigen, welke in kaartvorm de grote schat van basisgegevens van het "Office of Population Research" zou uitbeelden, is het boek gedurende zijn wording geheel van aard veranderd. Zo is het thans (in stede van een atlas met verklarende tekst) uitgegroeid tot een analytische beschouwing, toegelicht d.m.v. kaarten en grafieken

Human fertility in Russia since the nineteenth century by Ansley J Coale( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The birth rate in late-nineteenth century Russia was high and virtually constant, but by 1970 it had fallen by about two-thirds. Although similar reductions have occurred in other countries, the decline in Russian fertility is of particular interest because it took place in a setting of great ethnic heterogeneity and under economic and social institutions different from those in the West. This book tells the full statistical story of trends in Russian fertility since the first census in 1897 by examining the conditions—social, economic, cultural, and demographic—that existed at the beginning of and during the decline in human fertility.Originally published in 1979.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Regional model life tables and stable populations by Ansley J Coale( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Regional Model Life Tables and Stable Populations, Second Edition maintains the tradition of research on the analysis of fertility and mortality as related to population growth and composition. The tables presented are two principal forms: model life tables and model stable populations. The included models are models of mortality and age composition; ""west"" model life tables and stable populations; ""north"" model life tables and stable populations; ""east"" model life tables and stable populations; and ""south"" model life tables and stable populations.

The decline of Belgian fertility, 1800-1970 by Ron J Lesthaeghe( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fertility in Belgium declined early and remained low compared with that in other European countries. For this reason, and because of the nation's heterogeneity, study of its demographic transition illuminates the relationship between fertility behavior and socioeconomic development. Professor Lesthaeghe first describes the Belgian experience in a way that permits direct comparison with that of other European nations. He then tests the several explanatory hypotheses for the European fertility decline against his data.Belgium's heterogeneity in the nineteenth-century and in the first half of the twentieth was economic, social, and cultural. Some areas of the country underwent industrialization as early as 1800-1830, while others shifted away from agriculture and artisanal modes of production only between 1880 and 1910. Between 1890 and 1900, regional fertility levels differed drastically, as did regional infant mortality rates and life expectancies at birth. In addition, wide variation occurred in the process of secularization, linguistic characteristics, demographic trends, and other cultural indicators. By describing and analyzing these data in relation to Belgium's fertility decline, Professor Lesthaeghe makes a major contribution to the theory of the demographic transition that occurred throughout Europe.Originally published in 1978.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

The later years of childbearing by Larry L Bumpass( )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do American couples differ in the number of children they have? To answer this question the first major longitudinal study in American fertility was begun in 1957 with a series of interviews with parents of two children. Family Growth in Metropolitan America (1961) and The Third Child (1963) reported the results of the first two phases of this research project. In this book, in addition to evaluating the longitudinal design of the study, the authors report the results of the third and final interviews, a decade after the first, and attempt to answer such questions as: How well are couples able to predict their own fertility over the years? To what extent does the number of children desired affect the spacing of births? How is fertility affected by peer group relations, by the wife's participation in the labor force, by religion?Originally published in 1971.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
