He was credited as an actor in the show as Thomas Bruce; the show is still running at the Snapple Theater. Jones is the author of Making Musicals: An Informal Introduction to the World of Musical Theater, about which Elyse Sommer wrote on January 15, 1998 in CurtainUp: Extremely well organized and packed with interesting information, the first half of the book deals in broad and general terms with the growth and development of the American musical.

The second half focuses on the practical "how-to" of putting together a musical, using Jones's own career and shows he's worked on as a springboard... Since only half the book falls within the category of how-to I'm glad to report that this advice is stick-to-the-ribs solid. No hyperbole. No gratuitous name dropping. All of Jones's major musicals were written with Harvey Schmidt, whom he met at the University of Texas at Austin. Shoestring'57 Demi-Dozen The Fantasticks 110 in the Shade I Do! I Do!

Demography of the Netherlands

This article is about the demographic features of the population of the Netherlands, including population density, education level, health of the population, economic status, religious affiliations and other aspects of the population. The Netherlands is the 64th most populated country in the world, as of March 21, 2016, it has a population of 17,000,000; as of November 1, 2019 the Netherlands has population of 17,424,978. Between 1900 and 1950 the population doubled from 5.1 to 10.0 million people. From 1951 to 2000 the population increased from 10.0 to 15.9 million people, increasing by a smaller proportion. The Netherlands is the 12th most densely populated country in the world, the 5th most densely populated country in Europe; the 17.4 million Dutch inhabitants are concentrated on an area of 41,545 km2 including water surface, the land surface being 33,481 km2. This means that the country has a population density of 521/km2; the density of 500 inhabitants/km2 was reached in the first half of 2014.

Bangladesh is the only country larger in total area than and with a higher population density than the Netherlands. There are 11 more countries with a higher population density, but they all have a smaller population; as a result of these demographic characteristics the Netherlands has had to plan its land use strictly. Since 1946 the Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment has been occupied with the national coordination of land use; because of its high population density the Netherlands has reclaimed land from the sea by poldering. Between 1927 and 1968 an entire province, Flevoland was created, it houses more than 400,000 people. Because of these policies, the Dutch have been able to combine high levels of population density with high levels of agricultural production. Though the Netherlands is so densely populated, it has no municipalities with a population over one million, although the two largest municipalities of the country do score well over a million if the complete city region is counted, including the neighbouring satellite towns that are physically connected to the main municipality.

Moreover, the "four big cities" can in many ways be regarded as a single metropolitan area, the Randstad with over 7.5 million inhabitants around an agricultural "green heart". The Dutch population is ageing. Furthermore, life expectancy has increased because of developments in medicine, in addition to this, the Netherlands has seen increasing immigration. Despite these developments combined with the population boom after the Second World War, the low birth rate has caused low population growth: 2005 saw the lowest absolute population growth since 1900; this demographic development has consequences for social security policy. As the Dutch population ages, the proportion of people of working age, as a percentage of the entire population, decreases. Important policy advisors like the CBS and the CPB have pointed out that this will cause problems with the current system of old age pensions: fewer people will work to pay for old age pensions, while there will be more people receiving those pensions.

Furthermore, the costs of health care are projected to increase. These developments have caused several cabinets, most notably the recent second Balkenende cabinet to reform the system of health care and social security to increase participation in the labour market and make people more conscious of the money they spend on health care. In 2003, the annual birth rate per thousand was highest in the province of Flevoland; the overall lifelong Total fertility rate, was highest in the province of Flevoland and lowest in the province of Limburg. The municipality with the highest TFR was Urk followed by Valkenburg and Staphorst; the lowest TFRs were recorded in Thorn. The total population at December 31, 2006 was 16,356,914; the population loss due to net emigration was 35,502. In 2007, there were 123,000 emigrants. Nearly half the emigrants were native Dutch, followed at a distance by nearly 5000 Poles and more than 3000 Germans. There was an observable increase in net immigration from the former Bulgaria and Romania.

The annual death rate was lowest in the municipalities of Valkenburg, Renswoude and Zeevang. The highest annual death rates were recorded in Warmond and Doorn.16.4% of the total births in 2003 were to parents of non-European origin, although they account for only 12.4% of the population in the 25-34 age group. For example, 3.8% of the births were ethnic Moroccan, although they were only 2.26% of the 25-34 age group. Respective figures were 3.0 % for Turks. The TFR for Moroccans in 2003 was 3.3 while the general TFR was 1.73. TFR was 1.7 for Surinamese, 1.8 for Arubans, 3.0 for Africans and 1.8 for Americans. According to Statistics Netherlands, for the year 2007, the TFR for those born in Netherlands was 1.72. TFR of Moroccan immigrants was 2.87 and that of Turkish immigrants was 1.88. The total fertility rate is the number of children born per woman, it is based on good data for the entire period. Sources: Our Wor

Upton Park is a London Underground station on the District and Hammersmith and City lines, on Green Street in the Upton Park area of the London Borough of Newham, east London. It is in Zone 3; the station was opened by the London and Southend Railway in 1877. District line service began in 1902, the Hammersmith & City followed in 1936. LTSR services were withdrawn in 1962; the station has one for each direction. Two other platforms are now disused. Nowadays, the station serves Green Street. Upton Park was the first station on the LT&SR to be built by a property developer. Read was a developer who proposed the station and given approval designed and built a two platform station between the houses of Queen's Road and Harold Road; the station fronted Queen's Square on the corner of Green Street and Queen's Road opened in September 1877. The building was demolished in 1903/04 when the line was quadrupled and the present station constructed. Upton Park tube station appears in the English slang term, "He/She is Upton Park - two stops short of Barking", indicating that the individual in question is mad.

The service frequency is 15 services per hour on the District line and 6 services per hour on the Hammersmith & City line. London Buses routes 58, 104, 238, 330 and 376 serve the station. There are two ticket office windows, two touch screen ticket machines, three of the more traditional coin-only button machines. At present there are no lifts at the station for disabled access, nor are there plans to install any; the station served as the local station for the Boleyn Ground, the home ground of West Ham United football club. However, this changed. "Photographic Archive". London Transport Museum. Archived from the original on 18 March 2008. Upton Park station, 1933
