This book is intended as a reference source for the 1991 Indian census. It presents statistical data at the district level for all the states and Union Territories. The state and district tables concern population and growth rates of districts; population growth, 1901-1991; sex ratio and population density, 1981 and 1991; literacy, 1961-1991; and urban population by sex and literacy. A selection of 1991 census tables for the whole of India is also included. In an introductory text, the authors examine the policy implications of current demographic trends and describe the need for demographic zoning to facilitate population policy planning. The role of population in allocating resources is also addressed.

91-76771. 1992. [xiv], 145 pp. University of California, Institute of
East Asian Studies, Center for Korean Studies: Berkeley, California. In
This analysis of population trends in North Korea is based on data released by the North Korean authorities in 1989 as part of the procedures involved in obtaining technical and financial assistance from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). Data were also obtained by one of the authors in Pyongyang, North Korea, in 1990. The results indicate that "the total population of North Korea was about 21.4 million in 1990, 1-2 million fewer people than previously estimated by other sources for that year. Females still outnumbered males, but the gap is narrowing over time....Expectation of life at birth may have reached about 69 years and appears to be considerably greater for females than males....North Korea's infant mortality rate is low in comparison to many other developing countries. Fertility dropped steeply in the early 1970s and has declined very gradually since then....We estimate that some births were unregistered in the early 1980s, so that the 1987 birth rate was actually around 22.9 and the total fertility rate 2.5. Therefore, fertility was low but had not yet reached replacement level by 1987...."

obsession. [Marianne et les lapins: l'obsession demographique.]
ISBN 2-85565-633-8. 1991. 264 pp. Olivier Orban: Paris, France. In Fre.
The author examines current French attitudes toward demographic issues in France and their implications. He notes that, whereas demographers and politicians from both the left and the right are raising the alarm about a future decline, the population of France has actually grown from 40 to 56 million since World War II. In analyzing this apparent contradiction, the author points out that much of the concern is due to the type of population growth that is occurring rather than to the absolute total, in that the falling fertility of the native population parallels substantial immigration. The interlocking relationships among demography, politics, and nationalism are discussed in the context of present and future population trends.

It involves a study of the areal differentiation of these two attributes and attempts to explain the spatial variations in population numbers and their growth during the intercensal decade 1971-81....After an introduction to the subject and the study region, the physical basis of population distribution and factors influencing the present pattern are explained. The analysis of density of population, pattern of rural settlement and spatial arrangement of towns come next. The areal differentiation in distribution and growth is studied separately for rural and urban population as well as for the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe component. The role of migration in rural and urban growth is highlighted. Finally implications for further research and policy are spelt out."

The demographic future of the Latvian population in Latvia is examined using data from a variety of sources. The author notes that numbers have declined from around 77 percent of the total population in the 1930s to just over 50 percent in 1989, due primarily to large-scale immigration from neighboring Soviet republics. Consideration is given to the rural-urban distribution of ethnic groups and to the distribution of ethnicity and language by age. The problems that face Latvian authorities with regard to inter-ethnic relations in this demographic context are reviewed.

Changes in population size and structure in France from 1831 to 1989 are reviewed. The authors note that demographic trends in France have converged with those of other European countries in the period since World War II. Particular attention is given to postwar fertility, which after an initial surge is again below replacement level. Fears of the loss of cultural identity associated with large-scale immigration from Northern Africa are noted. The authors also describe recent changes in internal migration patterns.
