Mathematical demography is entering the era of dynamic analysis, where models seek to capture the implications of changing age-specific vital rates. The following chapters present findings from that research frontier, including work on fertility, mortality and morbidity, population heterogeneity, the dynamics of population size and structure, and the simultaneous analysis of age, period, and cohort factors.
