About the product

This edition reviews the demographic changes in population size and growth in the world and its urban and rural areas; the changes in mortality, fertility and migration that underlie these changes; and the population policies that Governments have adopted in response to their concerns with national aspects of population and development. The report concludes with a review of the state of knowledge on the interrelationships of population with poverty, food and the environment.
