A Note on the Law of Population Growth

  • Pierre-François Verhulst
Part of the Biomathematics book series (BIOMATHEMATICS, volume 6)


Of Verhulst’s tables we have included only that for France, which best fits his formula and has an asymptotic population of approximately 40 million. Readers should note that errors in Verhulst’s estimates of annual population change are serious and directional with respect to the official figures, and that the proportional error figures he gives are not the ones we most care about.
