Review quote

"This book in The R Series from Chapman & Hall acts much as a companion to the R package eha by the same author. ... If one wants to analyse such data using R, then the book is well worthwhile. Although it is written more from the point of view of a reader comfortable in using R [and] wanting to learn more about demographic data, it also offers something for the demographer looking to extend the scope of their analyses. ... the depth of treatment is about right to form the core of a lecture course ..." -Mark Bebbington, Australian & New Zealand Journal of Statistics, 2013
