United Nations Demographic Manuals On-line
"This site is the first product of the project on e-capacity in applied demography which is being implemented by the Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat. It presents a series of 23 manuals and guides of demographic methods and techniques issued by the United Nations over a long period of time. These manuals and guides fall into six clusters which can be accessed through the hyperlinks. For each cluster the opening page contains a short introduction and a hyperlinked list of manuals. The pages for particular manuals include a short introduction, reproduction of the cover page, chapter-level table of contents hyperlinked to respective files in the portable document format and links to thematically related manuals"
