Edited by Clifford Odimegwu, John Kekovole
Routledge – 2014 – 190 pages
This volume documents the levels, trends, and differentials in various demographic phenomena, such as population, age, sex, fertility, nuptiality, migration (internal and external), population distribution and urbanization, population health, and gender. It provides a contextual understanding of South African demography through in-depth socio-economic analysis of the trends, combining social and technical demography to underscore the usefulness of demographic data in the national development agenda.
Clifford Odimegwu heads a regional demographic training program at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa.
John Kekovole is an Executive Manager in charge of population statistics at Statistics South Africa.
