"This report describes a geographic information system or GIS-based approach to documenting and mapping the size and distribution of population, vis-à-vis the distributions of land form (topography and elevation) and material development, in one of the major island provinces of the Philippines. Our immediate goal has been to estimate the size and the location of the upland population of Cebu province, and to obtain certain other practical results such as the proportion of recent provincial population growth which is occurring in the uplands. Within the limitations of the available data, the study also addresses the question of upland population dynamics: age-sex structure and rates of growth, and the migration patterns underlying these dynamics."

"Birth, death, and relocation are major life events. Whether in modern Western Europe or in the traditional society of the Teminabuan population (a rural society in Irian Jaya, Indonesia), these events constitute three milestones in a lifetime. Choosing a partner and (generally) opting for parenthood, the desire to protect children and other close relatives from illness and death, as well as decisions involving relocation and the adjustments such a move requires, are events we all face in life. How we deal with these `challenges' is determined by the characteristics of the society in which we live, the prevailing norms and attitudes. The specific combination of these factors, together with the people's own free-will, influence the final (birth, death, migration) outcome. The understanding of demographic features such as fertility, mortality, and migration therefore entails more than simply quoting statistics. It requires a study of the background variables. This study presents the figures as well as the direct and indirect determinants of fertility, mortality, and migration, as found in the present-day Teminabuan subdistrict, a previously uncharted area. This data demonstrates how the study population deals with their challenges in life."

In Spa.
This is an analysis of demographic trends in the Mexican state of Mexico for the period 1950-1980. The first chapter examines economic trends in Mexico during this period and how they affected the demography of the state, particularly in-migration. The next chapter looks at regional inequalities and their effect on migration. The reasons why certain regions lost population in this period and others, such as Mexico City and Toluca, gained population are analyzed. The third chapter focuses on the relationship between migration and social well-being, examining how employment opportunities can define the quality of life and noting that employment opportunities, or the lack of them, are the driving force behind migration.

"Since the middle of the 1980s, signs of the degradation of economic, social, political and environmental equilibrium began appearing in Rwanda. Behind the political sphere of the recent events, demographic pressure is often invoked as being responsible for all the ills. Still, the multiple symptoms do nothing more than reflect the complexity of a crisis that affects all sectors of the rural world. Conducted successively via the use of demographic parameters and those of the organization of agricultural space, this study seeks to analyse the changes in peasant strategies in order to understand the stakes involved in the dynamics of the rural system."

"The Matignon Agreements were intended to prepare New Caledonia for self-determination in 1998, by reducing the inequalities between the regions and between the communities. Major improvements have occurred in life expectancy and fertility. It is doubtless in educational attainment that the disparities have been reduced the least in ten years, including among young people.

"In 1993, the Navrongo Health Research Centre launched a new demographic research system for monitoring the impact of health service interventions in a rural district of northern Ghana.... This paper reviews the Navrongo model for data collection.... Demographic research results for the first 2 years of system operation are indicative of a pretransitional rural society with high fertility, exceedingly high mortality risks, and pronounced seasonal out-migration."

The authors examine whether the problems that India faces in adding an additional 500 million to its population over the next 50 years will be harder to manage than adding 650 million over the last 50 years. They conclude that "many of India's problems are due to social and economic conditions and policy failure rather than to rises in population. More environmentally friendly food production, more efficient use of water, and reduced pollution are urgently needed and for the most part affordable. The fertility decline needs to be accelerated by improving literacy and child survival and extending family planning services; there is no case for draconian measures."

This is the German Federal Institute for Population Research's annual report on the demographic situation in Germany, with Part B examining a particular topic in depth, this time divorce. General information is included on population dynamics and growth, marriages, births, deaths, international and internal migration, households, age structure, and abortion. Germany's population increased slightly in 1997 due to a small migration surplus; the eastern states experienced a population decline. Marriages dropped, births increased, deaths decreased, and the number of households grew, as did the number of one-person, childless, and one-parent households. Divorce rates reached a new high for the western states.

The case is made that most development plans currently being made in the Pacific Island countries ignore demographic factors. "It is not always lack of basic and timely data that accounts for this malaise, as is evident from a myriad of demographic indicators reported by a variety of government agencies and regional and international organisations. However, these often manage to portray quite different demographic scenarios using identical data sources. This paper examines the institutional and methodological context within which Pacific island population data are collected and demographic information is produced. It concludes by discussing ways in which demography and demographers can contribute towards more realistic planning and policymaking in the Pacific."

"The Asia Pacific region is demographically extremely diverse, with respect to both the sizes of national populations and the processes that determine population growth. Nevertheless, it is clear that in the 1990s development planning needs primarily to confront the implications not of continued high fertility, but of often rapid fertility decline to as yet uncertain levels. This paper briefly discusses these themes as a scene-setter for the papers which follow."

"The population of South-East Asia has recently passed the 500 million mark. Although growth is slowing, another 140 million may be added over the 20-year period 1995-2015. The additional population will be concentrated in the working ages and among the elderly. In many countries of the region--for example, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam--there will be little or no further growth in the number of children and adolescents.... Although South-East Asia remains one of the world's least urbanized regions, urbanization is increasing rapidly and the region contains some of the world's largest cities. Because of wide differences between countries in the mortality and fertility transition, levels of urbanization, systems of governance, and ethnic and cultural background, the key issues facing population policy and approaches to dealing with them remain diverse."

The author argues that the transplantation of European industrial methods of production to colonial third-world countries in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century caused a population explosion there, as the colonial powers reduced mortality in an effort to secure the labor force. Continuing high endemic fertility, however, along with problems in the adoption of European-style family planning, led to an imbalance in the dynamics of the population. The last part of the article discusses problems such as emigration, famine, environmental destruction, unemployment, and pauperization, which, it is argued, result from high population growth in a context of insufficient development.

The author presents an overview of global population trends in the period 1950-2025, noting that third-world countries are experiencing the bulk of this growth. After examining some of the reasons for the high population growth rates in the developing world, he considers the consequences of these trends. The problems of environmental degradation, urbanization, and the pauperization of large segments of the population are discussed. The author questions whether solutions can be found in time to avert a worldwide catastrophe.

The authors examine population growth, density, and settlement patterns in Senegal, with a focus on regional differences. "These disparities are an illustration of the recent moves among the population according to new spatial entities as a consequence of labour mobility. Urban areas are gaining more and more importance while rural areas are undergoing the severe consequences of the drought that occurred in the seventies. Meanwhile, international migrations, and the importance of their impact on local economies should help highlight how density and population growth can be interpreted in some areas."

Recent demographic trends in Croatia are analyzed, with the focus on trends in the six main regions into which the country was recently divided. "Basic indicators show that the Croatian population has characteristics similar to those in other European countries. After 1971 the population increase fell off considerably, the birth rate decreased, and the population grew much older. The authors pay special attention to the period of war and population loss after 1991, when the rate of natural population increase became negative. This led to a population decrease independent of migration and war losses. Conditions are worse in rural and mountain regions, which have been exposed to depopulation for a long time, and have recently been going through real social and demographic collapse."

The author proposes a new demographic research agenda for Europe, covering mortality, fertility, and migration, but focusing mainly on fertility, the area of greatest uncertainty. "The basic aim of the project would be to establish whether the dramatic changes in demographic behaviour observed in industrialized countries (in the last third) of the 20th century should be interpreted as a temporary phenomenon of little long term consequence, or as a reflection of a new stage in Western civilization.... The project should be broad in scope and not deal with fertility in isolation from courtship, sexual behaviour, contraception, partner relations, the family, leaving home, and related life course events. It should try and understand the interrelation and sequence of these different phenomena."
