Summary

Předmět demografie je určen všem zájemcům o odbornější poznávání demografických procesů. Poskytuje znalosti o populační reprodukci studujícím na vysokých školách nejen univerzitního směru, ale i organizacím různorodého aplikačního zaměření (např. pobočkám Českého statistického úřadu, pracovníkům na úrovni obecních, městských nebo okresních zastupitelství apod.). Studenti se seznámí s demografií jako vědním oborem, ověří si možnosti analytických postupů při práci s různorodými demosociálními ukazateli, kriticky posoudí úlohu vnějších vlivů na populační procesy a seznámí se s možnostmi populační teorie a politiky v celospolečenském systému. Konkrétními výsledky analýz vybraných jevů poslouží k získání reálné představy o stupni demografické rozvinutosti České republiky. Stěžejní kapitoly 3., 4. a 5. nabízejí zásadní poznatky o základních demografických strukturách a procesech, vysvětlují stav a vývoj reprodukčního chování našeho obyvatelstva. Analýzy na národní úrovni jsou v menším rozsahu doplněny o mezinárodní srovnání tak, aby základní demografické poznatky o trendech v naší společnosti našly přiměřenou odezvu při komparativních přístupech k okolnímu světovému demografickému prostředí.
