Demography. A Short Introduction

Essay from the year 2003 in the subject Sociology - Methodology and Methods, University of Phoenix, 4 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Demography is a broad social science discipline. ('What is Demography') The word 'demography' comes from the Greek word 'demos', which means population and 'graphy', which means to describe or draw. (Luczkovich) In it's most simplistic terms, demography is the study of how human population changes. Various data is collected and then analyzed to see how populations have changed over a period of time, and to predict how they will act in the future. These changes occur due to births, deaths, immigration, emigration, and natural aging. Demography can be studied as a study of the Earth's entire population, or by specific groups such as: geographic area, age, gender, race, nationality, and a variety of other aspects.
