"This study is concerned with population growth and structure of the Arab villages in the West Bank, and attempts to compare the situation in the villages with that of the West Bank population as a whole and to identify significant differences between the various administrative divisions. The data used in this study are from the personal survey carried out by the author in 1987, and the published data from different sources, Jordanian, Israeli, Palestinian and others. Part one examines the general characteristics of the Arab villages of the West Bank, the housing conditions and the household structure. Part two concentrates on population growth....Part three is concerned with population structure, including the differential of age and sex structure, the median age, the aged/child ratio and the crude dependency ratio [and marriage patterns]....Finally, this part deals with the economic composition of the population."
This work was prepared as a doctoral dissertation at the University of Durham.

These include: first, an overview of population change and prospects for the future; second, the distribution of population and internal migration; third, the changing age structure and its broad economic implications; fourth, a consideration of fertility rates that are below the level needed for population replacement; fifth, excess mortality; and sixth, the implementation of a pro-natalist population policy in response to a low growth."

Current population trends in the United Kingdom are analyzed. The focus of the report is on the implications of below replacement-level fertility and of demographic aging. "It begins by examining recent trends in the birth rate, the family and mortality, putting these in the context of developments in other industrialised countries. On the basis of this examination, the most plausible assumptions about future fertility and mortality rates are chosen as the foundation for projections of the population's age distribution over the next 40 years. The remainder of this Report examines implications for education; for various aspects of people's working lives, including the pay of different age groups and generations, the structure of jobs and labour productivity; for households and the housing market; for pressures on health and personal social services; and for transfers of resources between generations, through state pensions and private provision. A concluding section considers whether population policies are needed, or indeed feasible, and what other policies can make it easier to adjust to changes in the structure of the population."

"When the two Germanies were reunited in 1990, 16 million East Germans were added to the West German population, giving it a 20 million person advantage over Italy, France, and the United Kingdom. This...[article] traces the history of German population growth from the 1870s through World War II and up to the present. The authors examine the demographic trends of the new Germany and the prospects for future growth. Until 1990, marriage, fertility, and mortality followed different paths in the two countries. The wealthier West German women delayed marriage and childbearing, for example, and West German men lived longer than East German men. But these differences may reflect the pronatalist policies, repressive politics, and sagging economy of the former German Democratic Republic. Unification may eliminate many of these differences." The authors address the demographic impact of migration to Germany, migration policy, and the assimilation of migrants. Consideration is also given to demographic aging and long-term population decline.

"The paper gives a first sketch of demographic patterns in the united Germany. It primarily focuses on regional divergences in population density, age structure, sex ratio, nuptiality, fertility, mortality and natural population growth. The paper then presents data to demonstrate that the (future?) German capital, Berlin, is located far away from the demographic center of the united Germany in a sparsely populated area. To estimate the consequences of the unification for population distribution, the paper calculates the demographic gravity centers of the FRG, the GDR, and the united Germany. Finally, a locational profile of selected German cities (including Frankfurt and Berlin) is calculated to determine their demographic centrality."

In the first part, trends in both countries are compared. Demographic factors considered include marriage rate, age at marriage, fertility levels, incidence of induced abortion, migration, and age distribution. The second part describes the situation of migrants in the Federal Republic of Germany, covering basic demographic characteristics as well as labor migration and naturalization.

"This paper studies regional and temporal variation in age at marriage, fertility, mortality and population growth in Ethiopia. The data...[were] obtained from the 1970 and 1981 demographic surveys conducted by the Central Statistics Office of Ethiopia....The results show that the mean age at marriage had increased between 1970 and 1981. However, this did not seem to have any effect on fertility reduction....There was no evidence of voluntary fertility control among women of childbearing age. This is because the observed total fertility was not significantly different from [the] natural fertility rate. Even though there is reduction in child mortality between 1970 and 1981, the rate is still quite high. The rate of population growth was found to be higher in the Southern regions when compared with the North. This is consistent with the fertility findings."

The present situation of demographic studies in China is reviewed. Although they recognize the historical continuities in the present-day Chinese demographic order, the authors note the dramatic increase in the knowledge of Chinese demography that occurred in the 1980s. They attempt to identify the long-term patterns in Chinese demography, including trends concerning marriage and the family. Particular attention is given to the interdisciplinary links between demography and sociology, anthropology, and geography.

In the article the latter deformations of demographic transition in Poland are discussed and arranged into three groups: health crisis, familial crisis and spatial crisis."

An analysis of demographic developments in Poland since around 1970 is presented, with the emphasis on the characteristics that are peculiar to Poland. These include an increase in fertility since 1970, increased adult mortality, and stagnating life expectancy at birth. A framework for analyzing these trends is presented which involves two main groups of mortality determinants, health hazards (environmental and behavioral) and health promotion (including legislation, education, and health services). The author concludes that Polish demographic trends are the result of a complex combination of factors, rather than due to any one primary factor.

Population developments in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region of China from 1948 to 1984 are analyzed. Comparisons are made with China as a whole to illustrate the region's unique demographic characteristics. Large-scale migration from elsewhere in China has affected the region's spatial distribution, ethnic composition, and urbanization levels. The author also notes differences in demographic trends among the region's minority nationalities.
