Frank Trovato

Canada's Population in a Global Context
ISBN 13: 9780195419078

About the Book

This text will be a core text on Canadian demography. It situates Canada's population in a global context, providing Canadian students with a more balanced and complete picture of population dynamics. Each chapter will identify and explore core issues and concerns. Technical matters are kept to the bare essentials and emphasis is placed on conceptual and theoretical frameworks for the analysis of population phenomena.

Age and sex compositions are thoroughly profiled in a global context, as is mortality. Mortality change in a historical perspective, epidemiological transition of the West versus that of developing nations, inequalities in mortality and health, and the future course of mortality are investigated. Also discussed are fertility and the determinants of fertility, such as biology, culture, and society; theories of fertility change in both Western and developing nations; and the cost and values of children to parents.
