This book is a thorough update of the original "Methods and Materials of Demography" (1976). Every chapter is new, written exclusively for this edition. Like the original, "Red Book", the second edition presents a systematic and comprehensive exposition of the methods used by technicians and research workers in dealing with demographic data. It is concerned with the ways data on population are gathered, classified, and treated to produce tabulations and various summarizing measures that reveal the significant aspects of the composition and dynamics of populations.

From the Back Cover:

"Whenever one discusses demographic methodology, whether in this corner of the globe or with colleagues internationally, the tendency is to reach for the authoritative text and that is always Shryock and Siegel. It covers most methodological questions from those one confronts in undergraduate teaching through to much more advanced work. That is why the demographic community will welcome this revised version. I feel that the field of population studies owes a debt to the team that have taken the initiative of updating this classic."
-Ian Pool, University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand

"The second edition of "M and M," the red bible of demographic methods, is long overdue and will be valued as much as, if not more so than, the first edition. All demographers and demography students will have to have this book, which is current, timely, accessible, and chock full of all the demographic methods, data sources, and references needed to do demography."
-Dudley L. Poston, Jr., Texas A&M University

"This book is an indispensable reference tool for professional and academic scholars in population studies, particularly for those who have interest in description, analysis and interpretation of major population trends, offering valuable insights to anyone involved in studying, teaching and working on demographic issues. The new edition has been updated and covers a wide range of topics, remaining a key text for students as well as professionals who need to manage demographic concepts and measures, phenomena and methods. It is essential reading for demographers as well as geographers, economists, sociologists, and health scientists."
-Filomena Racioppi, Dipartimento di Scienze Demografiche, Universita degli Studi di Roma "La Sapienza"
