The European Population since 1945


The European Population since 1945 is the companion volume to the previously published The European Population 1850-1945: together they provide the most comprehensive statistical set available on Western European demography. It is a comparative and historical data handbook with accompanying CD-ROM, presenting series data on demographic developments, population and household structures for the countries of Western and Central Europe.

All major fields of demographic change are covered: fertility, mortality, marriage and divorce. Population figures are given for each population census by sex, civil status and age. Major demographic developments within the family are described providing a commentary on the main population structures and trends in Europe since 1945 to the end of the 20th century.
