Introduction to Applied Demography
Data Sources and Estimation Techniques



August 1984 | 95 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Applied demography is a technique which can handle small geographic areas -- an approach which allows market segments and target populations to be studied in detail. This book provides the essential elements of applied demography in a clear and concise manner. It details the kind of information that is available; who produces it; and how that information can be used. The sources mentioned are American, but the techniques for estimating have universal application. A background in elementary algebra is sufficient for this book.

'This is a handy, concise primer that summarizes various fundamentals of particular interest to the field (estimating total populations, household sizes, etc.)' -- Population Today, October 1984

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
