63:30795 McCracken, Kevin. Resources for population studies on the World Wide Web. Issues, No. 37, Oct 1996. 47-53 pp. Melbourne, Australia. In Eng.
"The aim of this article is to give readers a brief introduction to the array of population resources available on the World Wide Web (WWW) part of the Internet....The development of the World Wide Web has dramatically improved the resources available for all aspects of population studies....In some cases, the improvement has been through the creation of totally new resources. More commonly, though, the improvement has been one of accessibility; that is, resources that were previously available in hard-copy form but difficult or impossible to obtain are now openly and (in most cases) freely available to Web users."
