"All books in the series are written for the general reader, students in high school and up, and business managers, entrepreneurs, or graduate students in business and economics looking for a refresher. This book draws on studies by demographers, economists, sociologists, and historians to highlight some of the most important demographic research from the last few decades, looking at how emerging and past demographic patterns shape the US job market and education system. Chapters are devoted to four major trends: the aging of the US population in the context of national and international demographic shifts; changes in how US families and households are organized; legal and illegal international immigration flows; and shifts in the urban and regional population of the US and the role of migration within the US. The final chapter concentrates on the interactions among these four trends." - Reference & Research Book News
"With the introduction, summary, and index, these detailed chapters on each trend make this book an excellent resource for the general population as well as high school students and undergraduates. This work is highly recommended for all public, high school, and academic libraries." - ARBAonline
". . . a readable, well-documented guide to complex questions that will impact all citizens in the future. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers, all levels of undergraduate students, and professionals." - Choice
