Population Growth of Indonesia:




15.Population Growth of Indonesia:
An Analysis of Fertility and Mortality Based on the 1971 Population Census.
Lee-Jay Cho, Sam Suharto, Geoffrey Mcnicoll, and S.G. Made Mamas. 1980.


Four specialists on Indonesian population have collaborated on this useful analysis of census data. A major contribution of the book is the regency-level mapping of fertility patterns — a type of analysis greatly needed in a country as culturally and economically diverse as Indonesia. For example, the authors have distinguished for “fertility regions” within rural Java and Bali, and further note that fertility in cities in Java is closely correlated with fertility in their hinterlands.
