Addressing the methodological and topical challenges facing demographers working in remote regions, this book compares and contrasts the research, methods and models, and policy applications from peripheral regions in developed nations. With the emphasis on human populations as dynamic, adaptive, evolving systems, it explores how populations respond in different ways to changing environmental, cultural and economic conditions and how effectively they manage these change processes. Theoretical understandings and policy issues arising from demographic modelling are tackled including: competition for skilled workers; urbanisation and ruralisation; population ageing; the impacts of climate change; the life outcomes of Indigenous peoples; globalisation and international migration. Based on a strong theoretical framework around issues of heterogeneity, generational change, temporariness and the relative strength of internal and external ties, Demography at the Edge provides a common set of approaches and issues that benefit both researchers and practitioners.

'Overall, the editors and other contributors to Demography at the Edge provide an accessible and informative introduction to the social demography of remote areas in developed countries. By reviewing a broad set of methodological and substantive topics, and complementing them with numerous case studies, they give readers a necessary baseline of knowledge about remote area demography. Their book contains important lessons for academics, policymakers, and local stakeholders...' Journal of Regional Science
