Riassunto: This text will be a core text on Canadian demography. It situates Canada's population in a global context, providing Canadian students with a more balanced and complete picture of population dynamics. Each chapter identifies and explores core issues and concerns. Technical matters are kept to the bare essentials and emphasis is placed on conceptual and theoretical frameworks for the analysis of population phenomena.
Age and sex compositions are thoroughly profiled in a global context, as is mortality. Mortality change in a historical perspective, epidemiological transition of the West versus that of developing nations, inequalities in mortality and health, and the future course of mortality are investigated. Also discussed are fertility and the determinants of fertility, such as biology, culture, and society; theories of fertility change in both Western and developing nations; and the cost and values of children to parents.
Nuptuality and marriage patterns are explored alongside contemporary patterns of marriage, divorce, and cohabitation in developing nations and the Western world, and theoretical perspectives on marriage and family change are featured.
Central topics include mobility and migration, internal migration and its relationship to urbanization, cities and their components of growth, urban systems in developing and industrialized nations, and explanations for migration. Key issues include human migration in historical perspective; social, economic, and political interrelationships in international migration; globalization; theories of international migration; as well as immigrant adaptation and integration in host nations.
Lastly, population policy and public policy in Canada, policy responses to low fertility, policy responses to rapid population growth, and policy successes and failures are examined.
Frank Trovato has been a full professor in the sociology department of the University of Alberta for over ten years. He received his PhD in Social Demography from the University of Western Ontario in 1983, and his MA from the same institution in 1978.
