The Demographer is a menu-driven user-friendly software package for population projections. They are based on a mathematical model assuming that some crucial demographic variables such as age-specific fertility and survival ratios remain unchanged. They can serve as predictions of future population changes or/and as indications or warnings about future population trends if the existing population parameters remain unchanged. The underlying mathematical model is briefly described in section 2 and the programme itself in section 3.
