52:30059 Britton, Malcolm. Recent population changes in perspective. Population Trends, No. 44, Summer 1986. 33-41 pp. London, England. In Eng.
Recent population changes in England and Wales are summarized, with particular emphasis on comparisons between population growth rates in metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas. Trends observed during the period 1981-1985 are contrasted with developments that took place in the preceding two decades. The roles of natural change and net migration in determining population change are also considered.
It is noted that "the trends of the 1960s and 1970s have continued but at a substantially reduced rate. For instance, the population of the metropolitan areas of England declined by 3 persons per thousand population per annum throughout the 1981-85 period compared with a rate over twice that figure during the late 1970s. Similarly the population of the non-metropolitan areas only increased by 2 per thousand per annum during the 1981-85 period compared with a figure of close to 7 per thousand in the late 1970s."

"This study is an attempt to measure the meaning of the inter-regional movements of population in Algeria during a long period of time (1897-1977). As in the whole of the Mediterranean countries, these movements have resulted in rebalancing the differences in density between mountains and plains. Nevertheless, as a result of demographic growth, the population in the mountains is much denser than it was in 1897. And the populations moving from the mountains have not settled equally in the different types of plains: coastal plains, and amongst them chiefly Algiers, received most of it."

The impact of the demographic transition on population structure in the Republic of Korea is first described. Regional demographic changes induced by massive interregional migration and urbanization are then analyzed for the period 1960-1980 using census data. "During this period the Korean cities showed a concentration of young population due to in-migration from rural areas....Rural areas in general [except for those surrounding Seoul and Pusan] are more and more characterized by population losses and aging due to selective out-migration."

52:30062 Ding, Yisheng. The urban and rural distribution of China's population. Renkou Yanjiu, No. 4, Jul 29, 1984. 14-6 pp. Beijing, China. In Chi.
The spatial distribution of the population of China is described using data from the 1982 census. The results show that 20 percent of the population live in urban areas and 80 percent in rural areas; coastal areas support a slightly higher percentage of people than the hinterland and have a higher density of population; and urbanization has been fairly slow in part because of slow economic development but also because of tight control over movement into urban areas. Although the development of cities with over 500,000 people is rapid, the number of small cities is declining. The need to encourage the growth of small and middle-size cities is noted.

"The paper examines patterns of population change in Morocco for the decade 1971-1981. They do not mirror those which might have been expected in view of the national economic and spatial structure of this country. The differences are attributed to international economic forces which have transcended national forces in shaping population patterns in parts of the country."

The authors explore aspects of population growth in nonmetropolitan areas in the United States before, during, and after the 1970s, a decade in which growth in these areas exceeded urban population growth. The particular focus is on "whether the post-1980 period is one in which population distribution patterns and factors associated with population growth have reverted to being very similar to that in the pre-turnaround era....We have associated selected variables with county population change for each of three periods--1960-70, 1970-80, and 1980-84 in a multivariate analysis [and] have examined growth trends in these time intervals for nonmetropolitan geographic subregions."
Official data for nonmetropolitan counties and county equivalents are used in a multiple classification analysis, with variables included for location, manufacturing, median income, and recreation and resort activities. Ways in which nonmetropolitan growth patterns since 1980 differ from those observed before 1970 are noted. It is concluded that "the recent turnaround reversal is not a return to the status quo of the 1960s within the nonmetropolitan sector."

52:30070 White, Michael J. Segregation and diversity measures in population distribution. Population Index, Vol. 52, No. 2, Summer 1986. 198-221 pp. Princeton, New Jersey. In Eng.
"The purposes of the present paper are to show the relationship between measures of population diversity and measures of segregation, to describe the salient properties of these indexes, and to demonstrate the empirical interrelationships among them." Some measures not frequently used in population studies are considered, and empirical illustrations are given of the significance of using one measure rather than another. In particular, the author stresses proportional reduction of error interpretations for an index and considers its ability to handle more than two groups. The primary geographic focus is on the United States.
The "introductory section of the paper treats conceptual issues in more detail. The second section reviews selected measures and recent critical viewpoints, while the third section tests their empirical performance. The conclusion makes some recommendations about the selection of an index. A detailed bibliography follows."

"Using the results of the censuses of 1885 to 1910 the age structure of German cities with more than 50,000 inhabitants is analysed. By means of cluster-analytic procedures four demographic types of cities with specific age structures are distinguished....It can be shown that the differential growth of cities between 1885 and 1910 is in accordance with the differentiation of the age structure of the urban population....Finally, the age- and sex-specific net migration for the period 1885 to 1910 is identified by means of the cohort method, and the influence of migration on the total growth of population is assessed in the light of these results."

"This paper examines key determinants of the population composition of cities, as measured by the mix of high and low skill people. In the course of the paper, a variety of evidence about the nature of cities in an economy will be revealed. However, the results relate most directly to controversies concerning the applicability of the Tiebout model, in interpreting patterns of population location and urbanization in an economy. Also, as we will note later, a major part of the work is directly related to the literature on hedonic-wage functions...." The geographic focus is on the United States.

Anticipating accelerated rates of urbanization in developing countries in Asia, the author emphasizes the need for a disaggregated sectoral approach to analyzing food policy. It is noted that food policies in the past have focused on issues of aggregate supply.
"With urbanization accompanying economic development, the composition effect in food demand becomes more significant than the scale effect as consumers continuously switch to foodstuffs of better quality and more variety....A good part of the food problem, however, may have to do with the changing composition of requirements resulting not only from increasing incomes but also from the locational shifts of households....Furthermore, with urbanization there is the phenomenon of entitlement shifts as households move away from both direct and exchange entitlements to food in rural areas to only exchange entitlement in cities."

The relationship between urbanization and social development in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand is examined. A review of Soviet studies on urbanization in developing countries is first presented, together with a critique of non-Soviet studies. Next, the process of urban growth from the 1950s to the 1980s is described, and the relative contributions of migration and natural increase are assessed.
