This is an instruction manual for the use of the Demographic Projection Model (DemProj). The model "is a full-featured population projection program...designed to permit easy manipulation and analysis of demographic data by any user with a basic understanding of demographic principles and the ability to operate a microcomputer....It is intended mainly for the planner or researcher who is not necessarily a demographer....DemProj can be used to project the population of an entire country or region under different assumptions about the future course of fertility, mortality and migration....The program can also be used to project urban and rural populations....A special section on AIDS allows assumptions about the future course of HIV infection to be included in the demographic projections. DemProj does not project the spread of the infection but does allow the user to examine the demographic consequences of different assumptions about the incidence of new HIV infections." A diskette containing the program is included.
