Human Demographics

Human Demographics

Demographics explores population growth pyramids, much like my Human Demographics simulator below, where you can change birth and death rate schedules. In this rendition, the user can directly set vital rates to match those of a different country. (E.g., how would India's population develop under US birthrates.) Countries: USA, China, Egypt, India, Italy, Mexico, and Nigeria.
