United Nations Demographic Yearbook 1956

image of United Nations Demographic Yearbook 1956
The 1956 Demographic Yearbook is the 8th in the series published by the Statistical Office of the United Nations. To complete the presentation of results of population censuses carried out between 1945 and 1955, this-like the 1955 issue-is a census reference volume. However, in this issue, particular attention is paid to ethnic and economic characteristics of the population, whereas the 1955 Yearbook covered chiefly geographic distribution, statistics of detailed age, marital status, literacy and measures of fertility.
