Population Studies And Demography

The study of populations, including their size, structure and transformations. Overview of population processes: How populations grow and change over time - fertility, mortality, and migration. But it has been shown that reductions in child mortality can induce a demographic transition. Demography deals with human populations; the statistical analysis of births, deaths, migrations, disease, fertility, growth and economic issues, as illustrating the conditions of life in communities.

“Social” demography is an area of inquiry which seeks to understand the causes and consequences of population and demographic change by examining sociological and also economic variables.
