52:40028 Lam, Chee Kheung. The population of Sarawak. 1984. University Microfilms International: Ann Arbor, Michigan. In Eng.
"This thesis measures the demographic differentials, dynamics of growth and change of population among the six ethnic communities [of the state of Sarawak in Malaysia], and identifies the economic, social and cultural factors influencing these trends and differentials. The analysis shows substantial differences in mortality and fertility among the six ethnic communities; differentials closely linked to differences in life styles, living conditions, food supplies and levels of nutrition, and accessibility to education and health services."
Changes in mortality and fertility among the various communities from the 1940s to the 1980s are considered. Attention is given to the probable future course of population change in Sarawak through the end of this century.
This work was prepared as a doctoral dissertation at Australian National University.

52:40033 Chen, Kuanjeng; Wang, Temu; Chen, Wenling. Causes and consequences of population change in Taiwan. Journal of Population Studies, No. 9, Jun 1986. 1-23 pp. Taipei, Taiwan. In Chi. with sum. in Eng.
Aspects of the demographic transition as they affect Taiwan are considered. "It is argued that since the transition takes a shorter period of time to complete than that of the European-American experiences, age composition of the population is so affected as to produce a structure akin to the result of a baby-boom. While the size of a baby-boom is measured by the magnitude and speed of fertility increase, the peak in numbers born during the transition can be measured by the magnitude and speed of fertility decline."
The effects of the imbalances in the age structure on employment, retirement, and household composition are examined using simplified proportional models. Particular attention is given to the prospects for rapid demographic aging during the first quarter of the twenty-first century.
