"The present document was prepared by the members of the 'European Population Committee', the Council of Europe's intergovernmental body entrusted with demographic matters (CDPO). National reports and data from the member states served as background documents for an exchange of views on recent demographic developments at the CDPO's 9th plenary meeting in June 1989...[and were compiled into this] volume of up-to-date demographic data....The reports submitted by member states are in two parts: the first is a short descriptive text in which each country comments selectively on aspects of demographic changes which seem to be of particular importance. The second part consists of a set of tables of demographic data from national statistics, which were completed as far as the availability of data in the different countries permits." Tables in English and French include data on population age structure and density, dependency ratios and demographic aging, changes in population size, first marriage rate and divorce rate, birth rate, total fertility rate and net reproduction rate, age at childbirth and first marriage, death rate, infant mortality, and life expectancy.
