"Siegel has delivered a winner (again!). Intended for the demographic practitioner and those who seriously wish to engage in the field of applied demography, this book is The User Guide to the demographer's toolkit. The scope and breadth of the concrete examples are awesome!"
--Paul R. Voss, University of Wisconsin, Madison
"Demographersacademic and appliedwill welcome this comprehensive new volume, which deserves a quite broader audience than its title suggests. Applied Demography is, in fact, several books in one: a handy methodological reference work for teachers, students, and researchers; and a comprehensive overview of the sources of US demographic and socioeconomic data available to researchers within and outside the United States...
Jacob Siegel ... has contributed yet another impressive work of broad relevance to the demographic profession. It fulfills the author's stated purposes: to serve as a text in a one-semester course for advanced undergraduates and graduate students and as a reference handbook for practitioners; and to advance serious interest in this widening field. Siegel's volume also demonstrates that applied demography knows no boundaries. The same can be said of this remarkable author, whose next work we eagerly await."
--POPULATION AND DEVELOPMENT REVIEW
In contrast to a typical general text in demography, which is concerned with demographic principles, trends, problems, and theories, Applied Demography explores the practical issues with which demographers working for government agencies, private nonprofit organizations, and businesses deal. It emphasizes the applications of applied demography in a variety of related disciplines, such as geography, economics, gerontology, public policy, law, sociology, public administration, and business management. The data of these disciplines are taken into account, as are the methods of statistics and computer sciences. The book aims to inform the student of the wide range of applications of demography, including not only narrowly "demographic" situations but also "nondemographic" situations, such as manufacturing processes and the dynamics of organizations as a population.
