    The Demographic Yearbook is a comprehensive collection of international demographic statistics, prepared by the Statistical Office of the United Nations. The Demographic Yearbook 1987, which features household characteristics as a special subject, is the thirty—ninth in a series published by the United Nations.
  • Concepts and definitions of households, householder and institutional population
    The present issue of the Demographic Yearbook features household and family statistics as the special topic. Although previous issues of the Yearbook (1955, 1962, 1963, 1968, 1971,1973, 1976, 1982) have shown data on households by size and number of family nuclei, this is the first time that this topic receives extensive treatment including a review article on definitions, uses of headship rates and nine tables on the number, size and composition of households and population living in households and institutions.
  • Technical notes on the statistical tables
    These Technical Notes are designed to give the reader relevant information for using the statistical tables. Information pertaining to the Yearbook in general is presented in sections dealing with various geographical aspects and population and vital statistics data. The following section which refers to individual tables includes a description of the variables, remarks on the reliability of the data, limitations, coverage and information on the presentation of earlier data.
