About The Book

Beginning in 1979. the present volume of Dynamics of Population and Family Weybre is the seventh in the series of biennial publications brought out by the International Institute for Population Sciences, Bombay, and presents the findings of the research work carried out by the faculty members and/or research students at the Institute during the years 1990 and 1991. We feel greatly encouraged by the excellent reviews that appeared in some recognised journals like Population Studies about the earlier volumes. In this volume, twelve articles have been included. These are grouped under three sections: Section I on "Developmental and Demographic Trends", Section II on "Migration, Urbanisation and Labour Force". Section III on "Fertility and Mortality," Each Section contains four articles.

Almost all the articles pertain to India and cover a wide range of topics such as study of characteristics and perceptions of students in higher education in Maharashtra: Manpower Planning: Breast-feeding and Contraception: and study of Slums in the City of Thane (Maharashtra). In terms of the size, this volume is the smallest in the series published thus far. The Institute's faculty members have been encouraged for contributing to this volume because of the interest the demographic community has evinced in this series. The faculty did not yet get time and resources to fully exploit the published results of the 1991 Census of India but we have included one article highlighting the salient features of India's population trends based on the latest census data.
