Although I feel honored to write a foreword for this important book, it is a task that I approach with some trepidation. The topics covered in the book summarize the current state of the art in technical demography. However, my knowledge and expertise with respect to technical demography are limited to the most fundamental and intermediate-level methods; hence, critical commentary on the contents of this volume is beyond my scope in this fore- word. Since I have some understanding of the logic and substantive aspects of the methods rather than the complicated mathematics used in describing them, my comments will necessarily be restricted to the book's general or- ganization and content. To date, most texts published on technical demography have been limited to traditional demographic methods: sources and limitations of data, life table construction and applications, standardization techniques, various methods for preparing population estimates and forecasts, etc. However, population specialists have in recent years been developing and successfully applying a variety of sophisticated techniques not covered in the more standard intro- ductory texts. In addition, many traditional methods that are unique to the demographic discipline have been improved and extended.

Basic Demographic Methods. Life Table Approaches to Demographic Analysis. Age, Period, and Cohort Effects in Demography. Causal Relationships in Population Analysis. Logistic and Probit Models. LogLinear Models. Demographic Models. The Parametric Failure Time Models. Multiregional Demographic Analysis. Index.
