Series on Population Studies
The “Series on Population Studies” has been published by the Federal Institute for Population Research since 1975 and includes monographs and collective volumes on current demographic topics.
The series focuses on the topics of fertility, family, migration, mobility, ageing, social structure and demographic change. It is aimed primarily at teachers and researchers in the fields of population studies, sociology and political science, but also provides interesting information on demographic change for scientifically interested people from practice, media or other areas.
As a rule, the publication series includes one to two books per year, which undergo a review procedure and are published in German or English language. Since 2014, the series is released through Barbara Budrich Publishers. All volumes released eversince will be freely available here as a PDF document as soon as three years after publication.
