Appeared in Choice on 2006-11-01:
By using data from the UK 2001 census and other demographic tools, this book, a British Office of National Statistics (ONS) "Focus On" publication, provides full and interesting information about characteristics of the UK population at the end of the last century and the first four years of the 21st century. Ten clearly presented chapters that employ understandable charts, graphs, tables, and text written by experts from the ONS and elsewhere cover topics such as migration inside and into the UK, population age structures, urban conurbations, fertility and mortality, population distributions and changes since 1991, and special groups such as the armed services, prisoners, and resident students. The book begins with a short overview chapter on the UK population since 1801 (the first census), and ends with a comparative study of the UK population in a European context (in 2004, Britain had the third largest population in Europe). All chapters include excellent notes and bibliographies. For those who want the portability of a book, this is a required purchase; for those who do not need this information in print, this book's contents are available on the Office of National Statistics Web site . Easily accessible to general audiences and above. ^BSumming Up: Essential. Researchers, teachers, and planners. M. J. Moore Appalachian State University
