The volume is organized into four major sections:
  • Methodological Issues
  • Mortality and Fertility Studies
  • Reproductive Health
  • Current Issues in Population

The book provides insights on recent developments in methods of demographic analysis that include human development index, sampling and non-sampling issues in large-scale surveys and assessment of adult mortality and life expectancy. It also examines evidence of Hindu-Muslim fertility differentials.

The book also addresses critical reproductive health issues such as use of emergency contraceptives, sexual behaviour of rural male youth, and factors that influence pregnancy and post delivery complications.

The section on current issues focuses on stagnation in urban growth, problems of widening gender disparities and ageing due to declining fertility, impact of irrigation development on demographic changes and the role of members of panchayati raj institutions in health and family welfare programmes.

The book is of importance not just to demographers but to other social scientists, planners, policy makers and administrators as well.

The book gives an overview of the issues surrounding Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), both in the Global South and North. It presents the political and social frameworks of ART, and its impact in different countries. In the context of social pressure to conceive – particularly for women – this collection explores the effect of the development of ARTs, growing globalisation and reproductive medicalization on societies.
Furthermore, this book analyses ART inequalities, commonalities, and specificities in various countries, regions and on the transnational scene. From a multidisciplinary perspective and drawing on multisite studies, it highlights some new issues relating to ART (e.g. egg freezing, surrogacy) and discusses some older issues regarding infertility and its medical treatment (e.g. in vitro fertilisation, childless stigmatisation and access to treatment).
This book will appeal to scholars and students in the social sciences, medicine, public health, health policy, women’s and gender studies, and demography.
