This study adds to the emerging literature examining empirically the link between
population size, other demographic factors and pollution. We contribute by using
more reliable estimation techniques and examine two air pollutants. By considering
sulfur dioxide, we become the first study to explicitly examine the impact of
demographic factors on a pollutant other than carbon dioxide at the cross-national
level. We also take into account the urbanization rate and the average household
size neglected by many prior cross-national econometric studies.

Human beings have a powerful effect on the environment, as is becoming increasingly clear. Demographic factors are commonly recognized as one of the primary global drivers of human-induced environmental change, along with biophysical, economic, sociopolitical, technological, and cultural factors. Concerns about demographic effects on the environment are
In 2005, the baseline country studies pointed to a
lack of connection between advocacy for reduction
of maternal mortality in national-level planning and
the necessary linkage to effective programmatic
responses through resource allocation, capacity-
building and human-resource development.
The 2011 case-studies suggest that this problem
persists: despite a closing of the gap between
policy and programmes, the limited progress
with improving health outcomes has shown the
importance of strengthening health systems –
particularly for maternal and newborn health.
Descriptive statistics were used for demographic variables, expressed as mean and standard
deviation in the case of continuous variables with a normal distribution. In case of an
asymmetrical distribution the median and inter-quartile (IQ) values were used.
Noncontiguous variables were presented as frequencies. The Shapiro-Wilk test was used to
determine a normal distribution.
Demographic and epidemiological transitions and changes in lifestyle are leading to the
emergence of cancer and other chronic diseases as public health problems in India. Cancer
pattern in India reveals the predominance of tobacco related cancers, which are amenable
to primary prevention. Cancer Registries in different parts of the country reveal that majority
of cancer cases present in an advanced stage and makes treatment options prolonged and
The imagination is questionable (Daily, 1997; Dasgupta, 2000b). In any event, we should
be sceptical of a theory which places such enormous burden on an experience not much more
than two hundred years old (Fogel, 1994; Johnson, 2000). Extrapolation into the past is a
sobering exercise: over the long haul of history (some five thousand years), economic growth
even in the currently-rich countries was for most of the time not much above zero.
The belief that children will take care of the parents in the old age is eroding in India where
the family size has been cut down as a result of the demographic process (Dandelkar, 1996).
The situation in the urban areas shows a rejection of older people by the next generation and
this is spreading to rural areas (Desai, 1985). In the nuclear family regime, the position of the
aged becomes more vulnerable and is treated as a burden to the family (Nayar, 1992). The
social negligence of the aged occurs due to cultural, social and economic relations within the...

This report provides a basic but comprehensive demographic, social, economic and health profile of
Cambodia’s older population based on the 2004 Survey of Elderly in Cambodia (SEC), a representative
survey of persons age 60 and over conducted in Phnom Penh and the five largest provinces. As such it
represents the first comprehensive examination of the situation of Cambodian elders based on a widely

Socio-economic inequality of immunization coverage in India
Jørgen Lauridsen1* and Jalandhar Pradhan2
Abstract To our knowledge, the present study provides a first time assessment of the contributions of socioeconomic determinants of immunization coverage in India using the recent National Family Health Survey data.
The aimof this paper is to provide a detailed analysis of the impact of total
population size and other demographic factors on air pollution emissions and
to correct the weaknesses outlined above. We build on the papers by Dietz
and Rosa (1997), Shi (2003) and York et al. (2003a, b) and improve on their
studies in a number of ways. First, whereas these three studies examine only
CO2 and energy use,we extend the analysis to sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions,
a pollutant with very different properties to CO2 and hence potentially pos-
sessing a very different relationship with population.
Despite the increased demand for graduate business education
stemming from the current economic slowdown and other contrib-
uting factors, the savvy business school applicant is in a unique po-
sition to secure a coveted seat in a leading MBA program through
some additional due diligence. Understanding what wows and irri-
tates admissions officers at leading business schools, and tailoring
the MBA application accordingly, can propel one’s candidacy from
unlikely to competitive.
Obwona (2000) estimated a trans log production function to determine technical
efficiency differentials between small- and medium-scale tobacco farmers in Uganda
using a stochastic frontier approach. The estimated efficiencies were explained by
socioeconomic and demographic factors. The results showed that, credit accessibility
extension services and farm assets contribute positively towards the improvement of
The demographic changes within populations, especially in developing
regions, are projected to occur at a rate of three and a half times from
1980 to 2020, causing a rapid increase in the over-60 population. With
more people living longer, the burden of unnecessary blindness from
trachoma among older people is estimated to be very high. And, of the
projected 50 million blind people living in low-income societies by the
year 2020, roughly 38 million will be women.
Multiple individual characteristics are associated with positive reproductive health behaviors.
Demographic characteristics, including gender, race/ethnicity, and age are all important, with
males more likely than females to initiate sexual intercourse at an early age and to exhibit greater
levels of sexual activity; racial and ethnic minorities more likely to engage in behaviors related
to early pregnancy, childbearing and STIs, and older teens more likely be sexually experienced
but also more likely to use contraception (Abma & Sonenstein, 2001; Miller, Norton et al.
This article contributes to the general debate on the link between
population growth and the environment by analyzing the impact of
demographic factors on two air pollutants. At the same time, it also con-
tributes to a more focused debate on how population size and other
demographic factors should be taken into account in future projections of
air pollutant emissions.
