“Demography is changing” is the sentence that opened the last three editions of this book, and it remains appropriate. In just the eight intervening years since the last edition, our world has experienced a number of major demographic milestones. In this edition we have updated and expanded our introduction to fundamental demographic issues, trends, and methods to include emerging demographic issues as above, as well as additional recent topics of interest to demographers. The chapter structure and basic design of the textbook remain as in the past edition.
