Recent Trends in Fertility and Mortality in Hungary: A Curriculum Unit. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminars Abroad Program, 1998 (Hungary/Poland).
This curriculum unit, suitable for advanced placement high school courses or introductory level college courses, explores Hungarian fertility and mortality rates and their social and economic consequences. Students are required to map, graph, analyze, and summarize demographic data to examine population trends in Hungary in the post-World War 2 era. Noting that developed countries have different population issues than those in less developed countries, the unit points out that Hungary is a nation in which mortality exceeds fertility. The unit cites Bulgaria, Estonia, Croatia, Lithuania, Germany, Italy, Romania, and the Ukraine as other nations in which the population has fallen in the 1990s. The unit is divided into the following parts: (1) "Comparing Birth and Death Rates for Central and Eastern European Nations, 1998"; (2) "Hungary's Historical Demographic Experience, 1946-1998"; and (3) "Age Distribution." (Contains 4 figures, 5 tables of data, 8 cited references, 3 other references, discussion questions, and more figures, labeled A-F). (BT)
