Introduction to Demography--Professor Na Yin
Thursday 4:15-6:15pm

This course will review the demographic, social and economic determinants of fertility, health, mortality and related demographic phenomena. Further, in order to more fully understand many social and economic conditions we face today, the course examines the effects of population size, structure, and processes on these conditions. Topics will include, among others: the demographic transition; aging and mortality; fertility, family planning and reproductive health; urbanization; migration; family demography, including marriage, living arrangements, and family structure; population and environment; consequences of population growth for economic development; and the demographic future.
