Demographic Methods and Concepts free pdf Demographic Methods and Concepts presents the methods most commonly needed to work with statistical materials on population at national, regional and local levels. Unlike other textbooks in the field, clear non-technical language is used throughout to make demographic techniques accessible to a broad readership irrespective of background in mathematics.

Further Spreadsheet Exercises in the text enable the acquisition of computing techniques that enhance the breadth and depth of investigations, as well as enjoyment and proficiency in working with population statistics.
