"The United Kingdom's Old Age Pensions Act of 1908 instituted means-tested, noncontributory pensions for men and women aged 70 and over. The pension and the lack of civil registration of births before 1864 caused many Irish to exaggerate their ages in the Census of 1911. In this paper a linked sample from the manuscript censuses of 1901 and 1911 is used to estimate the magnitude and determinants of this age misrepresentation. Our results show three types of age discrepancies: those associated with a significant reduction in age-heaping; those associated with efforts to obtain a pension before age 70; and some apparent age-exaggeration unconnected with the Old Age Pension."

The phenomenon of age overstatement among the very aged in eighteenth-century Quebec, Canada, is examined. Using data from a reconstruction of the population of Quebec, the authors conclude that only one of the 178 supposed centenarians recorded in death certificates might have actually reached the age of one hundred.

The author discusses the multiround survey program begun in Laos in 1988 as a supplement to the first national census, taken in 1985. "The project had two broad objectives. The first was to provide training and support to selected village chiefs as a way of strengthening their role as civil registrars....The second broad objective was to set up a system of statistical collection, involving regular visits to selected households, to provide good estimates of vital statistics." Some 300 villages or urban clusters were surveyed to determine their size and growth. The results were used to project future changes in the population's characteristics.

This publication presents detailed information on trends in vital statistics in Mexico from 1970 to 1983. It contains data, indicators, and figures illustrating the relevant statistics, together with brief analyses of their significance. The summaries are geared toward those who are not familiar with demographic analysis. The first chapter examines the vital statistics as a whole, including births, deaths, infant deaths, fetal deaths, marriages, and divorces, both at national and regional levels. The following three chapters present a more specific focus on fertility, marriage, and divorce.

Data from two sources, the Farm Census and the Farm Trend Survey, are used to estimate and project trends in the farm population of Japan. First, the two data sets are used to estimate fertility, changes in occupation, and mortality for the period 1960-1985. The cohort component method is then used to project the population of farm households. The merits of the two data sources are also assessed.

Case studies are also included on Bangladesh, Nigeria, and Africa as a whole.

The author evaluates vital statistics collection and registration in Libya. "By the early 1980s, birth registration was fairly close to being complete whereas death registration was still only about two-thirds complete....Complete coverage of births and deaths appears to be a reachable goal during the present decade. However, the quality of data still needs substantial improvement, particularly in regard to eliminating the high incidence of non-response....Recommendations for remedying the conditions inhibiting the improvement of the Libyan civil registration system are presented...."

57:40747 Fang, Shan. Mainland China's fourth census: a preliminary analysis. Issues and Studies, Vol. 27, No. 3, Mar 1991. 116-27 pp. Taipei, Taiwan. In Eng.
Preliminary results from the 1990 census of China are analyzed. The author first gives figures for the total population and considers their implications for population control, and then describes changes in the characteristics of the population. Other issues examined include urbanization and the sex ratio. The author concludes that data from the 1990 census do not give a true picture of the current population situation, due to changes in the criteria on which the statistics are based and to deliberate reporting inaccuracies that stem from fear of government actions. "In short, mainland China's land and natural resources are inadequate to cope with this rapid growth in population. Recent reform measures have both reduced the effectiveness of the family planning campaign and led people to stress economic self-interest at the expense of attempts to achieve a smaller, better educated population."

The comparability of census data and its usefulness in providing a picture of social changes in New Zealand are explored. "The purpose of this paper is to discuss one source of inter-censal variation, that resulting from changes to the questions themselves....The discussion will be confined to the personal questionnaire and the way its content and format has changed over the last 40 years. An overview of the changes is followed by a more detailed consideration of the questions dealing with employment and work."

The author presents the case for developing new software packages specifically designed to process population census information for Latin America. The focus is on the problems faced by developing countries in handling vast amounts of data in an efficient way. First, the basic methods of census data processing are discussed, then brief descriptions of some of the available software are included. Finally, ways in which data processing programs could be geared toward and utilized for improving the accuracy of Latin American censuses in the 1990s are proposed.

The results of a public opinion survey on population issues in Japan conducted in June 1990 are presented. "Major findings from this survey are as follows. First, there are very few single young people who reject marriage itself....The recent rise in the proportion single [results from] postponement of marriage due to the recent rise in college enrollment...[and] job opportunities for women....Second,...while completed or intended number of children is 2.2 on average for married couples in childbearing ages, the majority of them think three children...ideal for Japanese families. Third, whereas people think low fertility and its resulting population aging are undesirable, they think Japan is overpopulated and the prospect of declining population in Japan is not so undesirable....Fourth, those who regard declining fertility as undesirable think it natural that the government should take action for encouraging fertility. Those who regard the prospect of population decline or aging of population as undesirable are also ready to accept pro-natalist policies rather than the massive introduction of [a] foreign labor force into Japan."

This article discusses the permanent demographic sample survey developed by France's Institut National de la Statistique et des Etudes Economiques (INSEE), which has been in use in that country since the census of 1968. Approximately one percent of the metropolitan population of France was chosen for inclusion by birthdate. By adding data on marriage, births of children, change of residence, schooling, employment status, and death to each person's file, longitudinal studies of fertility, nuptiality, and mortality can be conducted. Two such studies are included as examples of how the permanent sample survey can be best put to use.
