9780126418408: Applied Demography: Applications to Business, Government, Law, and Public Policy

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.

From the Back Cover:

"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 isThe User Guideto the demographer's toolkit. The scope and breadth of the concrete examples are awesome!"
--Paul R. Voss, University of Wisconsin, Madison
Complete, thorough, and current,Applied Demographycovers a wide range of disciplines, including economics, gerontology, public policy, sociology, public administration, and business management. With governments and businesses increasingly recognizing the need for demographic analyses and solutions, demographers are being called upon to work not only in areas narrowly defined as demographic, but also in nondemographic areas, such as insurance programs, manufacturing processes, and the dynamics of organizations as population units.
Applied Demographyabounds with examples of the applications of demographic data to the conduct of business, public policy, and labor issues. It is richly illustrated with tables, charts, worksheets, and basic collection instruments. Each chapter is accompanied by a list of Suggested Readings keyed to the text. In this way, readers develop a realistic sense of the broad range of applications of applied demography and have at hand the references they need to pursue specialized interests further. This book is designed to serve both as a stand-alone text for a one-semester course in applied demography and as a reference tool for anyone working with demographic tools and data.
