Population Bulletin. World Population Projections: Alternative Paths to Zero Growth.
Peck, Jennifer Marks
Population Bulletin, v29 n5 1974
This report is an adaptation of selected parts of a book on world population projections by Tomas Frejka. An explanation of the demographic terms that form a foundation for these projections is included, as well as discussions of the growth potentials for 24 nations throughout the world. Frejka's projections for a nongrowing population have been simplified into three areas--the intermediate path, the rapid path, and the slow path. The results of adherence to each of these paths is discussed with respect to each of the nations and to the entire world. Throughout the article it is stressed that a number of different factors could alter these projected population growth trends. (MA)
