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.

"Recent archaeological, ethnohistorical and ecological evidence has begun to challenge the view that `civilizations' failed to develop in the Amazon basin due to limitations of the tropical forest environment. As a result, estimates of the native population in 1492 have become an issue of debate. These estimates are evaluated in the light of the ethnohistorical research on the Ecuadorian headwaters. Estimates are considered by examining estimated habitat densities, the impact of Old World diseases and contemporary evidence for native cultures. The study is based on documents found in archives in Quito, Seville, Madrid and Rome. It is suggested that the population of the Amazon basin in 1492 probably exceeded 5 million but that expectations of substantially higher populations appear unfounded."

"This article assesses the causes of the stagnation in the declining trend in world population growth rates over the past decade. Three major factors have been identified as contributing to the stagnation: age structure, fertility trends in India and China, and the fact that although the number of developing countries with sustained declines in fertility levels rose sharply in the late 1960s and 1970s, it dropped off dramatically in the 1980s. Prospects for the growth rate in the 1990s favour a decline, owing to changes in the age structure and indications that China and India have resumed their fertility declines. However, there remain some populous developing countries that continue to have high levels of fertility. Fertility trends in those countries will have a certain influence on the world's growth rate."

"Population estimates have important implications for resource allocation within government and commerce, and are often assumed to be without error. Currently, central government provides annual population estimates for all the local and health authority districts in Britain, but estimates are needed for smaller areas, typically for electoral wards and postal sectors. Small area estimates are provided by some local authorities and commercial organizations, using different methods; the accuracy of these estimates is modelled here within a multilevel framework. Certain characteristics of the small area and of the method of estimation are included as explanatory variables. Results show that the method of estimation used is of great importance."

This work is designed as a textbook on the techniques of making population projections and is intended for use in courses on planning. "Following the introductory chapter, which considers the need and uses for population projections, the next two chapters are concerned with mathematical extrapolation techniques....In Chapter 3, the author outlines a fourstep projection procedure which is used throughout the remainder of the book. Chapter 4 describes how to project population size by comparing the growth pattern of the population under study with that of another population. The next chapter covers one of the most commonly employed techniques of population projection--the cohort-survival model, which is used not only to project the size of a population but also its composition in terms of age and sex groupings. The final chapter focuses on migration, generally the most volatile component of the basic demographic equation."

These numbers are based on an estimated July 1, 1994, resident population consistent with the 1990 census as enumerated and are projected forward using the cohort-component method with alternative assumptions for future fertility, life expectancy, and net immigration levels. For each of the components of change--fertility, life expectancy, and net immigration--three different assumptions about the future are applied....Projections of the middle series are shown annually by age, sex, race, and Hispanic origin to 2010, and quinquennially, thereafter, to 2050. Nine principal alternative series are shown by 5-year age groups and by race and Hispanic origin, quinquennially from 1995 to 2050."

These numbers are based on the 1990 census, as enumerated, with modifications for age and race, and household estimates from 1991 to 1994, and are projected forward using alternative marital status and household type proportions." Three different series were selected to illustrate possible alternative patterns of household change. The report includes the Census Bureau's first attempt to provide projections of people living alone and of families with and without children.

"The Netherlands Population and Household Forecasts are updated annually by Statistics Netherlands. In the 1995-based forecasts the short-term assumptions on fertility and immigration are revised downwards in comparison with the previous forecasts. As a result the forecast of total population size is lower: according to the new forecasts total population size in 2010 will be 16.7 million compared with 16.8 million according to the previous forecast."

The author assesses the accuracy of population forecasts in the Netherlands. "Forecast errors may have been caused by either failures of the forecast model or by developments which do not correspond to the expectations. Due to large errors of forecasts made in the 1960s and 1970s a new forecasting model (the cohort-component-model) has been developed and used since. Important changes of trends in fertility, mortality and external migration were incorporated gradually in the hypotheses of successive forecasts. However, short term fluctuations may sometimes lead to incorrect adjustments of long term assumptions."

"The 1993 World Energy Council (WEC) projections for world population in 2100 are compared with those of the United Nations, and the long-term implications of population growth are discussed. The World Energy Council projections for primary energy consumption in 2020 are presented, and supplementary projections based on other rates of economic growth are given. The WEC illustrative scenarios for energy consumption in 2100 are described, and an additional scenario is given, based on a lower assessment of the contribution from new renewable energy sources. The projections for atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration and rise in global mean temperature in 2100 are summarized. It is concluded that world energy consumption in 2100 will probably be more than double the 1990 figure, that half of it will be supplied by fossil fuels, and that a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration compared with the preindustrial level is unavoidable."

The model employed is a dynamic projection model of the multidimensional cohort-component type, and the computer program LIPRO has been used for the simulations....This report contains only macrosimulation results: the population, broken down by age, sex and household position is projected forward in time. A follow-up report (Part II) will present microsimulation results: in those calculations, the future household characteristics of a sample of individuals will be simulated."

Population trends in the Yugoslav republic of Serbia are analyzed for the period 1948-1991 using census data. The author notes that the population continued to grow over this period, primarily through natural increase rather than migration. The rate of growth, however, has declined over time. There are also significant differences among Serbia's three main regions: although the population of Vojvodina and central Serbia has begun to decline, the populations of Kosovo and Metohija have grown faster over time.
