Uniregional Population Dynamics: Age Without Location



Two classes of models are commonly used to examine how the growth and structure of a regional population evolves from particular regimes of fertility, mortality, and migration: the projection model and the life table model. Both allow one to separate out the impacts on population growth and structure of the demographic processes prevailing at a particular moment, and of the age composition and spatial distribution of the regional population at that moment. Chapter 3 focuses on the modeling of the projection process and the two most important components of such processes, namely, survivorship and reproduction. It also considers relationships that hold under conditions of stable growth. Migration is either ignored or included as net migration.
