Abstract:The scope of Population Studies as a discipline has expanded beyond its traditional focus on the three components of population and their dynamics, fertility, mortality and migration. It encompasses broader themes, including reproductive health and rights, gender and other social and cultural dimensions. Population is central to development and its integration into the development planning of every country is critical. This edited volume of the University of Ghana Readers by the Regional Institute for Population Studies (RIPS) provides multi-disciplinary perspectives on the multi-faceted nature of population studies today. It also has material on demographic research methods and provides tools for building the research capacity of academics and technocrats who are interested in population-driven interventions, advocacy and policy.
