This is the first volume in a new series titled Advances in Population: Psychosocial Perspectives. The aim of the series is to present work at a more abstract level, rather than results of empirical research on specific topics. The series hopes to focus on three types of study. "The first of these is theoretical and/or policy in nature....The second type of contribution is to be primarily methodological in nature....Third,...[it] should also provide the opportunity for researchers to overview results from the programmatic investigations concerning population related phenomena."
