In defining demography, the object is to identify the main attributes of the discipline as generally understood and as treated in this study. It has been said in a very general way that "The object of demography is the quantitative and statistical study of human populations" (Henry 1966). A similar definition states that "Demography is the empirical, statistical and mathematical study of human populations" (Bogue 1969, 1). These broad, general statements defining the field are essentially valid, but it is necessary to specify the way in which, or how, human populations are studied. A much-cited definition is: "Demography is the study of the size, territorial distribution and composition of population, changes therein, and the components of such changes, which may be identified as natality, mortality, territorial movement (migration), and social mobility (change of status)" (Hauser and Duncan 1959, 2). »
