Item description for Foundations of Demographic Theory: Choice, Process, Context by Bart De Bruijn & Bart J. de Bruijn...
Demography is more than just population figures. It is also about people and how they behave in certain situations. This book provides an interpretative framework that integrates a number of theoretical approaches to various behavioural processes underlying the numerical aspects of population development. The leading concepts in this interdisciplinary approach are choice, context and process (time), which are elaborated in a micro-perspective, drawing on cognitive, institutional and developmental interpretations. The resulting framework is developed for the study of fertility and is applied to a case study on family planning and reproductive health in India. The added value of this conceptual model for the discipline of demography is to be found in its contribution to a more profound understanding of the causal processes of demographic behaviour and to the ability to found population research, policy and interventions on a behavioural-scientific basis.
