This comprehensive, introductory text takes an applied, interdisciplinary approach. Because one author is a sociologist and the other a demographer, the material introduces perspectives from many different disciplines. The most applied book on the market, this text teaches students how to use the multitude of demographic resources available to them as consumers of data. Using case studies throughout to illustrate key concepts in a realistic and concrete manner, the authors also draw examples from recent U.S. Census data, United Nations and World Bank reports, tables from the National Center for Health Statistics, and other U.S. state- and county-level sources. New to the Second Edition • This second edition is divided into four main parts, and the chapters have been reorganized to reflect changes in the discipline. • All tables, related narrative, and graphics have been updated to include data from the 2000 and 2010 census counts, more recent estimates for the United States – especially the American Community Survey and comparable new data from international sources. • A full-color enhanced eText is also available. • This edition is accompanied by a teaching and learning package, including instructors manual, test bank, lecture slides, and a companion website that offers students additional resources, flashcards, and self-study quizzes. Printed Pages: 448.
