Bargar, Martha
Announced in this booklet is the availability of the International Demographic Data Directory (IDDD). The IDDD is designed to expedite the retrieval of demographic and family planning statistics for use by administrators, planners, and researchers. This guide describes the computerized system indicating the geographic scope of the data, subject coverage, the sources from which data are acquired, the manner in which information is disseminated, and how one can acquire information from the system. Detailed listings are provided in two areas, geographic and subject. The geographic listing covers major areas of the world, component regions, countries, major subdivisions of countries such as states or provinces, the urban and rural parts of these areas and, where data are available, metropolitan areas, cities, towns, and villages. Subject coverage consists of 11 major subjects with their first, second, and third level component variables. These are economic characteristics; economic indicators; education; family planning activities; fertility; health facilities, personnel, and services; households; marital status, nuptiality, and marital dissolution; migration; mortality; and population. Appended material shows sample printouts from the remote computer terminal. Order forms or request sheets for query service are also included. (BL)
