Sample text

Demographers commonly do this by period analysis on the basis of the idea of a hypothetical cohort. Instead of describing lifelong mortality, fertility, and migration in a real birth cohort, a hypothetical cohort is designed, and its agespecific death, fertility, and migration rates are calculated for the same single calendar year. This is done at the beginning of part three (Chapter 14). Standardization methods will then be used to compare total or synthetic indicators (Chapter 15) and perform agespecific and total differential analyses (Chapter 16).

The techniques of descriptive statistics were more than enough for that. Analyzing population change and understanding its mechanisms gave rise to a specific body of methods. That said, the study of change might aim to describe a state in situations where the latter is not directly observable. This, indeed, is the origin of demography. Before censuses became a matter of administrative routine and a reliable source of demographic information, there was no easy way to determine even the total population size of a country or province.

Part five looks at ways in which to take account of the dependency between demographic phenomena and of population heterogeneity. The following chapters analyse the factors of each of the three building blocks of population change: fertility, mortality, and migration. There are separate parts of each component, where the different types of factors (biological, socioeconomic, cultural) and levels of explanation (baseline variables and intermediate variables, theories, frameworks, and explanations) are addressed.
