Extensions of Stable Population Theory

  • John Impagliazzo
Part of the Biomathematics book series (BIOMATHEMATICS, volume 13)


The developments and results of the previous chapters can be summarized by the following statement: Given a population

  1. (a)

    that is closed to migration,

  2. (b)

    that has time invariant age-specific birth rates, and

  3. (c)

    that has time invariant age-specific death rates.



Stable Population Intrinsic Rate Crude Death Rate Intrinsic Birth Rate Intrinsic Growth Rate 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
