Overturning demographic myths

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

Demographic statistics can be complicated, and they tend to be oversimplified and sensationalized in media coverage. That’s Martin Walker’s argument. He’s a senior scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center and UPI Editor Emeritus. In an article out this month in a journal called the Wilson Quarterly, he’s taken a closer look at some demographic statistics and overturned some accepted truths about how populations around the world are changing. He joins The Takeaway with an explanation of his findings.
