The papers in this volume focus on the impact of economic fluctuations on mortality, fertility and labour markets in Latin America during the 1980s. An attempt is made to distiguish short-term from long-term influences and effects. Broader policy and institutional factors affecting thecontinent as a whole are examined as well as demographic consequences of economic changes in individual countries.
G. Tapinos is at Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris and INED, France. A. Mason is at Program on Population, East-West Center and Department of Economics.
