Multiregional Projection and Stable Growth



We have seen that the multiregional projection process focuses on the temporal evolution of a multiregional population by considering survivorship and migration, fertility and reproduction—and in instances of unchanging rates, the steady approach of that population to stable growth. Relations under stability are explored, particularly as they arise in populations approaching spatial zero population growth.
