Sample text

Society today is in the throes of rapid change, which is affecting some geographic areas and population groups more than others and creating new (social, economic, and demographic) divides or reviving old inequalities. As a result of the rapid pace of social and cultural changes, major technologic advances, the growing power of the market economy, the decline of the welfare state, globalization, adaptability to new situations differs from one population to the other, even within countries, according to their cultures, access to new technologies, and, of course, economic performances.

The same process is often applied in a bid to reconstitute past populations. Conversely, as will be seen, the development factors of a population during a given period of its history are closely tied to certain aspects of its initial composition. Without change, therefore, demography, would not exist but state and movement are central to the analysis. This kills two birds with one stone. First, regardless of whether all or each discrete component is concerned, the central overarching question that minimizes individual differences will always be the following: How does the size of a population subject to perpetual change through the entries and exits of the individuals comprising that population increase, decrease, or remain stable?

As will be seen throughout this book, demographic explanations and theories are increasingly incorporating the social value systems and factors that predicate demographic behavior. This is not to say, however, that all individuals act in an identical manner; even in very homogeneous societies, some individuals adopt nonconformist attitudes and styles of behavior. So, some couples in a low-fertility country may have large families, just as some couples may practice contraception in countries where fertility is highly valued.
