About this book

This book combines the disciplines of applied demography and public health by describing how applied demographic techniques can be used to help address public health issues.  Besides addressing the impact of aging on health and health-related expenditure, cause-specific mortality, and maternal health and morbidity, the book provides several chapters on special analysis and methodological issues.

 

The chapters provide a number of resources and tools that can be used in conducting research aimed at promoting public health. These resources include information on a variety of health research datasets, different statistical methodologies for analyzing health-related data and developing concepts related to health status, methodologies for forecasting or projecting disease incidences and associated costs, and discussions of demographic concepts used to measure population health status.

Reviews

I highly recommend this text to academics and practitioners in both demography and public health.  Its breadth and depth make it an excellent choice as a companion text in either demography or public health courses.
