D. Trends in Population Growth and Size

Studies on changes over time in population size and the bases of their estimation. Studies that are concerned primarily with the methodology of trends, estimations, and projections are classified under this heading and cross-referenced to N. Methods of Research and Analysis Including Models . Studies dealing with two or more of the topics listed in this division are coded under D.2. Current Rates and Estimates and cross-referenced where appropriate.

D.1. Past Trends

Studies of observed data on population growth in the past and its components. Includes studies that are primarily concerned with population trends up to and including World War II.

"Economic thought during the seventeenth century regarded a large population as being both essential for a State which adopted a mercantilist fiscal policy, and at the same time as a weapon to be used against that same policy. The depopulation of France was regarded as sufficient proof for the assertion that the fiscal system needed to be changed, since it acted as an impediment to social and economic welfare. The problem of overall depopulation was compounded by migration between towns and countryside. Royal officials and merchants alike agreed that the burden of taxation needed to be shifted from the countryside to the towns in order to promote agricultural production and stimulate consumption, which were regarded as the bases of economic growth."

The authors examine the demographic impact of the AIDS epidemic on a country with relatively low fertility, using Thailand as an example. They present a range of population scenarios up to the year 2015 depending on the severity of the epidemic. The results suggest that the AIDS epidemic could have a major impact on future population growth rates in countries with lower fertility levels.

World Bank Book, ISBN 0-8018-4947-0. 1994. vii, 521 pp. World Bank: Washington, D.C.; Johns Hopkins University Press: Baltimore, Maryland/London, England. In Eng.
This report "contains an assessment of demographic prospects based on the most recent censuses and surveys. From data available as of early 1994, detailed demographic profiles are drawn for 206 countries and territories and for groups of countries classified by geographic region and income level. The profiles show population by age and sex; birth, death, and growth rates; migration, reproduction, and fertility rates; and infant mortality and life expectancy. In addition to the country profiles, World Population Projections contains an introduction that highlights trends in demographic indicators in different regions of the world and describes the methodology used in making the projections, including procedures for incorporating AIDS mortality. The introduction also contains an illustration of the effects of alternative trends in fertility on future population growth. A detailed list of the data sources is included in the introduction."

The demographic projection model OMPHALE, developed at INSEE to provide regional population projections, is described. The model, which can be adapted to a wide range of hypotheses concerning fertility, mortality, and migration, needs only data on age and sex distribution from census sources to be applicable. Examples are given of projections of the total population, of the active population, and of housing.
