About the Presentation

Ideas on population are rooted in a ‘slow demography’ paradigm, with inertial and self-contained population dynamics, mostly dependent on fertility and mortality. I provide new estimates of country-level population turnover rates. For post-transitional societies, demography gets faster as migratory movements overcome births and deaths in affecting population change. Implications for science and policy are discussed.
