Series: R, No.
The online edition of the Demographic Yearbook 2006 provides statistics on population size and composition, fertility, mortality, infant and foetal mortality, marriages and divorces, the primary source of which are national population and housing censuses, population-related statistics from national administrative recording systems and population and household surveys reported by national statistical authorities.
This issue also presents for the first time data on deaths and death rates by cause of death by sex. In addition, this edition displays data on marriages cross-tabulated by age of groom and age of bride-data not published in the Demographic Yearbook since 1990.
