[The Demography of Oceania from the 1950s to the 2000s: A Summary of Changes and a Statistical Assessment]

Since 2004, Population has presented an annual chronicle on the demography of the world's regions, coordinated by Dominique TABUTIN. Its purpose is to provide readers with a broad overview of demographic trends and to present a comprehensive set of reliable, documented statistical series. Drawing largely on social, geographical, economic and epidemiological data, the chronicle aims to identify the specific features of demographic change in each of the world's regions.

Following on from the demography of sub-Saharan Africa in 2004, the Arab World and the Middle East in 2005, Latin America and the Caribbean in 2006, South Asia in 2008 and East and Southeast Asia in 2009, Jean-Louis RALLU presents an overview of demographic developments in Oceania since the 1950s. Population will complete its tour of the world in 2011, with a chronicle devoted to Europe and North America.
