🔥Description🔥
LITTLE has been published so far on the demography of northern Borneo. We already have census reports and a few short articles in learned journals, but here the first time is a book on the subject, written by the man who was administratively responsible for the North Borneo census of 1951 and the censuses of North Borneo (now Sabah), Sarawak and Borneo in 1960.
In this book, careful statistical research and intimate knowledge of the whole area have enabled Mr. L. W. Jones to describe the demographic development of the two Borneo states (Sarawak and Sabah) which have joined Malaysia, and the State of Brunei which has remained, for the time being at any rate, outside the new federation. He has divided the book into two parts – the first dealing with the situation in the pre-war years for which there is a paucity of statistical data, and the second and perhaps more important section covering the period of rapid population growth experienced since the disasters of World War II. In this second part, he has also assessed the nature of some of the problems which have still to be encountered as a result of the current high rate of growth of the population.
