These are the proceedings of a conference on socio-demographic change in the United Kingdom and its measurement, held at the University of Sussex, September 9-11, 1985. "The conference papers assembled in this volume not only discuss theoretical and methodological problems, but also provide valuable information about new dimensions of demographic and social change in [the United Kingdom] in the recent past. Sources and methods of analysis are critically evaluated, as are different kinds of 'explanation' of socio-demographic change. Particular attention is paid to change between generations, and to structural change."
