Happy holidays from Demography North

Demography North researchers would like to thank all you readers for taking an interest in the work that we do. What started as a small side-project to help distribute the presentations from our Northern Population Matters symposium #northpopmatters in August 2016 has turned out to be a great way to make our research more accessible.

 We hope that everyone has an enjoyable holiday time over the next few weeks and look forward to sharing more research in 2017.

In the meantime, if you're still searching for a gift or just looking for something to add to your reading list over the holidays check out the recently released 'Settlements at the Edge' book available for purchase online through Edward Elgar.

Settlements at the Edge examines the evolution, characteristics, functions and shifting economic basis of settlements in sparsely populated areas of developed nations. With a focus on demographic change, the book features theoretical and applied cases which explore the interface between demography, economy, well-being and the environment. This book offers a comprehensive and insightful knowledge base for understanding the role of population in shaping the development and histories of northern sparsely populated areas of developed nations including Alaska (USA), Australia, Canada, Greenland, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Finland and other nations with territories within the Arctic Circle.
