Biographical Note

Sabin Manuila was born in Transilvania in 1894.
He was the director of the first Central Institute of Statistics of Romania, and member of the Romanian Academy. He was also a member of the International Institute of Sociology, member of various committees of the League of Nations, member of the International Institute of Statistics, and vice-president of the Royal Society of Heredity. A former Rockefeller Foundation fellow, he received financial support from this foundation for the organization of the first demographic census of Romania. In 1948 he established himself in New York and became politically involved. His work with the "Iuliu Maniu" Foundation and the Romanian National Committee greatly supported Romanian political refugees.
He worked for the Institute for Food Research of Stanford University, where he contributed to the study The Agricultural Economy of the Danubian Countries: 1935-1945. Later, he became the Counselor for the US Bureau of Census in Washington.
His studies, "The Population of Romania" (1937) and "The Structure of Evolution of the Rural Population" are among the most famous Romanian demographic studies. Also, his paper "Regional Development of the Jewish Population in Romania" is considered among the most reliable statistical data regarding the Jewish population of Romania.
