Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Chapman and Hall/CRC statistics in the social and behavioral sciences. Publisher: Florida CRC Press 2019Description: xii, 280p. With index.ISBN: 9781498762625.Subject(s): Demography -- mathematical models | Statistical theory and methods | Psychological methods and statisticsDDC classification: 519.542 Summary: Bayesian Demographic Estimation and Forecasting presents three statistical frameworks for modern demographic estimation and forecasting. The frameworks draw on recent advances in statistical methodology to provide new tools for tackling challenges such as disaggregation, measurement error, missing data, and combining multiple data sources. The methods apply to single demographic series, or to entire demographic systems. The methods unify estimation and forecasting, and yield detailed measures of uncertainty. The book assumes minimal knowledge of statistics, and no previous knowledge of demography. The authors have developed a set of R packages implementing the methods. Data and code for all applications in the book are available on www.bdef-book.com. https://www.crcpress.com/Bayesian-Demographic-Estimation-and-Forecasting/Bryant-Zhang/p/book/9781498762625

20 Conclusion

Bayesian Demographic Estimation and Forecasting presents three statistical frameworks for modern demographic estimation and forecasting. The frameworks draw on recent advances in statistical methodology to provide new tools for tackling challenges such as disaggregation, measurement error, missing data, and combining multiple data sources. The methods apply to single demographic series, or to entire demographic systems. The methods unify estimation and forecasting, and yield detailed measures of uncertainty. The book assumes minimal knowledge of statistics, and no previous knowledge of demography. The authors have developed a set of R packages implementing the methods. Data and code for all applications in the book are available on www.bdef-book.com.
