About the product
The 1967 Demographic Yearbook is the nineteenth in the series of compendia of demographic statistics issued by the Statistical Office of the United Nations since 1948. The special topic of this issue, like that of the eighteenth (1966) issue, is mortality statistics. This departure from the usual plan of publication, whereby a different field of demographic statistics receives intensive treatment each year, was occasioned by the amount of mortality data currently available which is too large to be encompassed in one issue of the Demographic Yearbook. The 1967 issue emphasizes urban/rural differentials and seasonal mortality whereas the 1966 issue featured extended time trends of total deaths, infant deaths, late foetal deaths and perinatal deaths.
