From reviews of the First Edition:
"At last! ...a book on health demography which draws together these two important and useful disciplines... and provides a central resource for students as well as professionals who need access to demographic methods, measures, and concepts. ... [The authors] demonstrate the relevance and applicability of demographic principles to health care in a clear, thorough manner."
(Applied Demography)
"A well-written, effectively organized work that clarifies the role of health demography."
"The emphasis on the application of demographic concepts and methods to the understanding and solution of health care delivery problems... makes this an extremely useful book for health care marketers. ... [V]ery well written and organized.... [A] valuable reference book."
(Journal of Health Care Marketing)
