The Netherlands in Fifty Maps: An Annotated Atlas.
Journal of Economic and Social Geography, spec iss 1988
Statistical data relating to The Netherlands is presented in 50 maps that were originally published in the "Journal of Economic and Social Geography" between 1977 and 1986. Lengthy annotations accompanying each map provide important background information on the issues depicted. These elucidations were written with the foreign reader in mind, who is not expected to know much about the situation in The Netherlands. Map topics include: agriculture, cars, demography, education, employment, income, migration, on the dole, recreation facilities, social deprivation, voting, and water pollution. This wide range of themes reflects the radical changes in The Netherlands since the mid-1960s, for example, changing norms and values, a dramatic decrease in birth rate, a sweeping rise in divorce, the drop in marriage ratio which caused a more rapid rise in housing demand than in population growth, and the unprecedented pace of economic growth.
