The demographic landscape on the OUPblog

19 September 2013

If demography were a landscape, what would it look like? Every country has a different geographical shape and texture, visible at high relief, like an extra-terrestrial fingerprint. But what about the shape and texture revealed by the demographic records of the people who live and die on these tracts of land?

On the OUPblog there is a two-part blog post that explains both the good and bad news we can derive from the demographic landscape by Jonathan Minton. He is the author of the paper ‘Visualizing Europe’s demographic scars with coplots and contour plots‘, published in the International Journal of Epidemiology.
