The authors provide information concerning general demographic patterns in the Aland Islands, Finland, from the mid-eighteenth century to the beginning of the twentieth century. The primary sources used are parish records. Estimates of life expectancy at birth and at age five, gross reproduction rates, and total fertility rates are calculated for five-year intervals for the period 1751-1900 and are compared with similar data for mainland Finland and Sweden. Annual variations in crude birth, marriage, and death rates are examined, and years of crisis or extreme behavior are identified.

[La dynamique de la population de la Republique du Zaire.] Travaux et Recherches Demographiques Document, No. 3, Apr 1987. 40 pp. Universite de Kinshasa, Faculte des Sciences Economiques, Departement de Demographie: Kinshasa, Zaire. In Fre.
The author presents a historical overview of demographic trends in Zaire. After a brief discussion of the situation prior to the 1908 annexation by Belgium, developments during the years 1908-1960 are traced, with consideration given to population size, annual growth rates, sex ratios, child-woman ratios, internal migration, and spatial distribution. Data from a 1957 demographic sample survey and the 1970 and 1984 censuses are compared to show regional trends within Zaire over time in population size, sex ratio, and proportion of foreigners. Specific attention is paid to changes in fertility and mortality during the period studied. The final section includes a summary of the principal elements in Zaire's demographic history and comments concerning the inaccuracy of early estimates of the country's population.

The author examines the reasons for the rapid population growth that occurred in nineteenth-century Southeastern Asia, using available data for Java, Indonesia, and the Philippines. The evidence for either an increase in fertility or a fall in mortality is considered. Other factors considered include developments in medicine and sanitation, colonial peacekeeping, changes in standards of living, changes in patterns of residence and production, and indigenous perceptions of changing circumstances of life.

The relationship between population dynamics and colonization in the Americas following the Spanish invasion of the sixteenth century is explored. In the first part of this article, the author examines how the clash between the invaders and invaded led to a rapid decline in the native population. He also discusses the impact of European and African immigration during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In the second part, he considers how the Indian population slowly recovered during the eighteenth century. A review of the situation by region at the end of the colonial period concludes the chapter.

"This paper presents estimates showing that 2 million undocumented aliens were included in the 1980 census; of these, 1.1 million were born in Mexico. The estimates are developed by comparing estimates of aliens counted in the 1980 census with estimates of the legally resident alien population, based principally on data collected by the Immigration and Naturalization Service in January 1980. Estimates are presented by age, sex, and period of entry for all aliens residing in the United States and for selected countries of origin, including Mexico. They provide a framework for assessing the total number of undocumented aliens in the country."

A model developed by J. Nelissen and A. Vossen, for making short-term population projections, is first described. In this model, the fertility rate is related to the unemployment rate and the fraction of the labor force employed in agriculture. The model is then applied to Dutch data for the period 1980-1985. "The main conclusions are that the results depend heavily on the choice of the forecasting period and that the ex-post forecasts of Nelissen and Vossen's model are out-performed by univariate ARIMA-projections."

An attempt is made to project future population trends in Europe, excluding Eastern Europe, over the next 20 years. The authors suggest the probability that fertility will remain low and migration will play an important role in population change. "On a macro-scale, it can be suggested that the next 20 years or so will see not only a redrawing of the map of economic activities in Western Europe through economic decentralisation but also the creation of new regional patterns of demographic segregation.... In future there may be further demographic segregation, with the cities housing the young adult and the old alongside the new middle class but with very few children. It is the suburban--and, more specifically, counterurbanising--regions that will accommodate those in the family stage of the life cycle and which will produce the only areas of natural growth. Increasing regional differentiation of population by age cohort may therefore be expected to emerge, with some life-cycle increments occurring on a national core-periphery basis rather than merely within the city as happened in the past."

"It is often stated that the single most important influence on the quality of forecasts of behaviour is the set of predetermined exogenous variables (typically sociodemographic) that categorise the population. These variables are used to carry the sampled population into the future as a representation of the composition of future populations....It is argued that a desired segmentation set should be linked to preference stability, and that a suitable procedure for establishing such a link is via preference data derived from a controlled experimental design. From the empirical study it is illustrated how preference data can be combined with socioeconomic data to seek out the role of the 'current' set and the 'new' set of socioeconomic variables in a particular forecasting context. Since the selection of variables must be application specific, the main emphasis of this paper is on the methodology. The reported empirical findings [for Australia] are of illustrative use only."

In Eng; Afr.
Population projections for South Africa are presented up to the year 2035, based on 1985 census results and other official sources. The projections are provided for the four major population groups. Two alternative fertility trends are estimated for Asians, coloureds, and whites, and one for blacks. The assumptions included in the projections are described. The results suggest that "in both the high and low projections the non-black population groups are expected to tend towards stationarity by the year 2035. In the case of blacks, however, a population that is still increasing is expected in both the low and high projections in 2035. The reason for this is that the fertility of the black population is not expected to undergo a dramatic decline in the next two decades, as has occurred among the non-black population groups during the preceding decade."

"This paper provides algorithms for projection of mean and covariance functions for stochastic population processes governed by time-homogeneous laws of fertility and mortality. The theoretical foundation of the algorithms is general age-dependent branching processes in discrete time. The algorithms are employed in several illustrative projections, based on 1982 Chinese data, of a population experiencing an abrupt transition to below replacement fertility. Methods of constructing confidence limits for total population size are illustrated. Also developed are procedures for projecting mean and variance functions for populations which may be heterogeneous with respect to mortality or fertility."

Five methods of forecasting rates of significance to demographers are compared. The methods are described and applied to data for France and the Federal Republic of Germany for the period 1972-1982. The quality of rates for both countries is evaluated for male first marriage, female first marriage, and fertility. It is found that "the best estimates of the total period fertility rate and of the total period nuptiality rate are those given by methods where time is the major dependent variable of the regression, and where cohort rates are not at all, or very little, taken into consideration. Data related to the near past are better predictors than the...recent history of the observed cohort."

Demographic changes in developed countries over the past 20 years are analyzed. The emphasis is on factors common to the changes that have occurred in basic demographic indicators such as fertility and nuptiality. These intermediate factors are identified as a decline in the institutional aspects of marriage and the family, the practice of family planning, and the greater economic independence of women. These factors are seen as part of a more complex cultural change involving the relationship between spouses, which is increasingly based on greater equality, discussion, and convergent attitudes.
