Stephan, A Demography Timeline. Author Biographies. Review quote "When it was originally published The Methods and Materials of Demography Original author Jacob S. Siegel has now teamed with a new collaborator, David. Swanson, in updating the definitive demography bible. The Second Edition reflects changes in both technology and the global landscape in the 30 years that have passed, and now includes a chapter on health demography. Its sections outline the logical architecture of the science and its presentation and the tone remains didactic and simple, assuming little prior technical knowledge.
It covers most methodological questions from those one confronts in undergraduate teaching through to much more advanced work. That is why the demographic community will welcome this revised version. I feel that the field of population studies owes a debt to the team that have taken the initiative of updating this classic.
All demographers and demography students will have to have this book, which is current, timely, accessible, and chock full of all the demographic methods, data sources, and references needed to do demography.
Poston, Jr. The new edition has been updated and covers a wide range of topics, remaining a key text for students as well as professionals who need to manage demographic concepts and measures, phenomena and methods.
It is essential reading for demographers as well as geographers, economists, sociologists, and health scientists. About Jacob S.
