About this series
In recent decades, there has been a rapid development of demographic models and methods and an explosive growth in the range of applications of population analysis.

Topics appropriate for the series include:
General demographic methods,
Techniques of standardization,

Multistate and multiregional life tables, analyses, and projections,
Demographic aspects of biostatistics and epidemiology,
Stable population theory and its extensions,

Demographic projection methods and population forecasts,
Techniques of applied demographic analysis, regional and local population estimates and projections,
Methods of estimation and projection for business and health care applications,
