Demography of Russia : From the Past to the Present Hardback
Part of the Studies in Economic Transition series
This book examines the demographic development of Russia from the late Russian Empire to the contemporary Russian Federation, and includes discussions of marriage patterns, fertility, mortality, and inter-regional migration.
In this pioneering study, the authors present the first English-language overview of demographic data collection in Russia.
Chapters in the book offer a systematic overview of the legislation regulating fertility and the family sphere, a study of the factors determining first and higher order births, and an examination of population distribution across Russian regions.
The book also combines research tools from the social sciences with a medical approach to provide a study of mortality rates.
By bringing together approaches from several disciplines - demography, economics, and sociology - the authors of this book provide a comprehensive and detailed assessment of the historical roots of Russia's demographic development.
