SOC-308   Demography & World Population Problems

This introduction to demographic analysis of society includes a consideration of the major demographic theories of population growth and how these contribute to an understanding of population explosion, a review of how the socio-cultural dimension of human society affects major sources of population growth (fertility, mortality, migration, and how variations in these reciprocally affect society), and an analysis of the causes and consequences of population size, distribution, and composition for human society.
