 Demography - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Demographic analysis can relate to whole societies or to groups defined by criteria such as education, nationality, religion and ethnicity.
The term demographics is often used erroneously for demography, but refers rather to selected population characteristics as used in marketing or opinion research, or the demographic profiles used in such research.
Demographers may rely on the use of large amounts of data, including census returns and vital statistics registers, or incorporate survey data using indirect estimation techniques.

 EH.Net Encyclopedia: Fertility and Mortality in the United States
First, its fertility transition began in the late eighteenth or early nineteenth century at the latest.
This contrasts with the more typical demographic transition in which mortality decline precedes or occurs simultaneously with fertility decline.
Conventional explanations for the fertility transition have involved the rising cost of children because of urbanization, the growth of incomes and nonagricultural employment, the increased value of education, rising female employment, child labor laws and compulsory education, and declining infant and child mortality.

 Population Index - Volume 65 - Number 1
Most of them are demographers, and the topics they chose for their contribution cover almost the entire range of demography and often connect to the activities and scientific topics for which Dirk van de Kaa has become so well-known, such as the Second Demographic Transition.
There are sections on past demographic trends, spatial distribution, current population dynamics, age and sex distribution, nuptiality and households, fertility, mortality, internal migration and urbanization, international migration, and future population prospects.
Major demographic textbooks and teaching aids, general surveys and collections of readings that are particularly suitable as supplements to coursework, studies on the organization and coverage of training programs in demography, and selected items on population education.

 Chemistry   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Physical properties, such as density and refractive index tend to fall within values characteristic of the phase.
The phase of matter is defined by the phase transition, which is when energy put into or taken out of the system goes into rearranging the structure of the system, instead of changing the bulk conditions.
There is a hypothetical intermediate, or transition structure, that corresponds to the structure at the top of the energy barrier.
