Demographic aspects of migration by Thomas Salzmann( )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and German and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In all settings of society, migration is an important factor for the development and growth of population. To understand its consequences, it is fundamental to know the quality of the available data, the measurement instruments for analyzing migration, and to have an appropriate demographic framework for studying the demographic effects of migration. Whereas the first section focuses on analysis, the second part deals with the different demographic behaviours of migrants compared to residents. Further it demonstrates the motives and explanations for migration. The final section analyzes geographic and economic aspects. The authors combine demographic analysis, interdisciplinary research, and international illustrations to explore current trends in migration patterns and processes. This book is valuable reading for an interdisciplinary academic audience as well as for regional planners and policy makers

Immigration and race : recent trends in immigration to the United States by Jeffrey S Passel( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper traces the evolution of immigration to the United States during the 20th century with an emphasis on the racial and ethnic composition of the immigration flow. The changing generational composition of the country's population is described from 1850 through 1990. a new population projection/estimation methodology is employed to measure the contribution of each decade's immigrants and their descendants to population growth for the 1900-1990 period. The methodology is applied to each of four race/ethnic groups: Asians, blacks, Hispanics, and the white, not Hispanic population. The effect for the total population is derived by summing the four groups. The paper also describes the impact of alternative immigration scenarios for the century on hypothetical 1990 populations.
