Applied mathematical demography by Nathan Keyfitz( Book )

54 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focuses on applications of demographic models. This book introduces the life table to describe age-specific mortality, and uses it to develop theory for stable populations and the rate of population increase. This theory is then revisited in the context of matrix models, for stage-classified as well as age-classified populations

World population growth and aging : demographic trends in the late twentieth century by Nathan Keyfitz( Book )

9 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing data from official sources in 60 countries, as well as from the United Nations and the World Bank, this compendium of statistical information on population, fertility, and mortality treats every one of the UN-recognized countries in at least summary form. With data from 1950 onward and projections through 2020, this volume extends the dataset of Nathan Keyfitz and Wilhelm Flieger's landmark work, World Population: An Analysis of Vital Data (1968), with virtually no overlap. All the life tables, standardized rates, and projections have been generated by uniform methods to ensure easy comparison among countries. More than 800 charts provide a foundation for analyzing the radical demographic changes now taking place: the historic lows of fertility in Germany and other industrial countries, Africa's persistently high fertility, and the worldwide extension of life expectancy. The product of cautious and painstaking labor, this work promises to be an important resource for further demographic research as well as a valuable comparative resource for studies of the status of global social welfare and the environment
Demography through problems by Nathan Keyfitz( Book )

19 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a new approach to the teaching of population theory and analysis and is concerned with topics such as population projections, the life table, stable age distribution results, births and deaths under stability, projection and forecasting, and stochastic population models. Each chapter contains a brief introduction to the appropriate theory, followed by a sequence of problems, and partial or complete solutions. These problems secure the active participation of the learner in mastering the major themes of the subject."--Editor
Mathematical demography : selected papers by David P Smith( Book )

32 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematical demography is the centerpiece of quantitative social science. The founding works of this field from Roman times to the late Twentieth Century are collected here, in a new edition of a classic work by David R. Smith and Nathan Keyfitz. Commentaries by Smith and Keyfitz have been brought up to date and extended by Kenneth Wachter and Hervé Le Bras, giving a synoptic picture of the leading achievements in formal population studies. Like the original collection, this new edition constitutes an indispensable source for students and scientists alike, and illustrates the deep roots and continuing vitality of mathematical demography
