Inhabitants progress slowed the world over within the final many years of the 20 th century, altering considerably our view of the longer term. The twenty first century is probably going to determine the top to global inhabitants development and turn into the century of inhabitants getting older, marked through low fertility and ever-increasing existence expectancy. those tendencies have brought on many to foretell a dark destiny attributable to an exceptional fiscal burden of inhabitants getting older.

Yet, the assumption of a stable population is widely used in demography for the following two reasons. 1. Because the assumption is such a strong one, there are also strong mathematical relationships between population size, age structure and fertility and mortality levels in a stable population. These relationships can be used to arrive at powerful conclusions that would be impossible with a weaker assumption. 2. The mathematical relationships mentioned above are good approximations in many cases, in particular when deviations from stability are the result of changing mortality levels, with the changes more or less evenly spread over many age groups.

V. 2010 23 24 N. Keilman Frequently, the extra “information” is merely an assumption, sometimes a very strong one. For instance, the combined assumption that a closed population (no. 1) has constant growth rate (no. 2) and constant age distribution (no. 3) defines a stable population. This assumption may be realistic in some cases, but more often, it is not. A population in which the growth rates of age groups are independent of time, but differ across age groups is called a variable growth rate population.

Growth rates are the same for each age group and they are independent of time. 4. Growth rates are constant in time, but differ between age groups. 5. g. TFR or life expectancy). N. no S.
