A Longitudinal Approach to Great Plains Migration
Hudson, John C.
Great Plains Quarterly, v22 n4 p245-258 Fall 2002
Students of population and regional studies are familiar with the demographic accounting equation in which the size of the population at time t + x is equal to the population at time t plus the births, minus the deaths, plus the immigrants, minus the emigrants, during the interval of time x. This simple formula can be used to derive a variety of rates and statistics describing population change. Viewed another way, population size is also a chain of growth components linked by generation.
