Scope[edit]

The Canadian Studies in Population publishes articles on a broad range of studies in substantive and technical demography and related fields of study. While Canadian Studies in Population emphasizes the demography of Canada, the editorial board encourages manuscript submissions from all sectors of the international community. The journal occasionally publishes special volumes of interdisciplinary research.

History[edit]

The journal was first established in 1974 through the efforts of several demographers affiliated with the University of Alberta, including P. Krishnan (editor), John Forster, K.L. Gupta, Charles W. Hobart, Leszek Kosinski, Karol J. Krotki and Earle Snider. The original editorial board included several Canadian demographers who have made an important contribution to demographic research, both in Canada and internationally, including Nathan Keyfitz (Harvard), T.R. Balakrishnan (Western), Jacques Henripin (University of Montreal), Warren Kalbach (University of Toronto), Karol Krotki (University of Alberta), Anthony Richmond (York University), Anatole Romaniuk (Statistics Canada), and Leroy Stone (Statistics Canada). The inaugural issue in 1974 included papers written by Kingsley Davis, Nathan Keyfitz, and Roland Pressat.
