  • Emigration
    Emigration is the act of leaving one's resident country with the intent to settle elsewhere.
  • Logistic function
    A logistic function or logistic curve is a common "S" shape (sigmoid curve), with equation: where * e = the natural logarithm base (also known as Euler's number), * x0 = the x-value of the sigmoid's midpoint, * L = the curve's maximum value, and * k = the steepness of the curve.
  • Infant mortality
    Infant mortality refers to deaths of young children, typically those less than one year of age.
  • Family planning
    Family planning, simply put, is the practice of controlling the number of children in a family and the intervals between their births, particularly by means of artificial contraception or voluntary sterilization.
  • Famine
    (This article is about scarcity of food. For other uses, see Famine (disambiguation).) A famine is a widespread scarcity of food, caused by several factors including crop failure, population imbalance, or government policies.
  • Human Development Index
    The Human Development Index (HDI) is a composite statistic of life expectancy, education, and per capita income indicators, which are used to rank countries into four tiers of human development.
  • Infanticide
    Infanticide (or infant homicide) is the intentional killing of infants or children.
  • Population geography
    Population geography is a division of human geography.

  • World Population Day
    World Population day is an annual event, observed on July 11 every year, which seeks to raise awareness of global population issues.
  • Life table
    In actuarial science and demography, a life table (also called a mortality table or actuarial table) is a table which shows, for each age, what the probability is that a person of that age will die before his or her next birthday ("probability of death").
  • International Migrants Day
    International Migrants Day is an international day observed on 18 December as International Migrants Day appointed by the General Assembly of United Nations on 4 December 2000 taking into account the large and increasing number of migrants in the world.
  • Geographic mobility
    Geographic mobility is the measure of how populations move over time.
  • Birth rate
    The birth rate (technically, births/population rate) is the total number of live births per 1,000 of a population in a year.
  • Historical demography
    Historical demography is the quantitative study of human population in the past.
  • Mortality rate
    Mortality rate, or death rate, is a measure of the number of deaths (in general, or due to a specific cause) in a particular population, scaled to the size of that population, per unit of time.
  • Population decline
    Population decline can refer to the decline in population of any organism, but this article refers to population decline in humans.
  • Population ageing
    Ageing population is a phenomenon that occurs when the median age of a country or region increases due to rising life expectancy and/or declining fertility rates.
  • Population pyramid
    A population pyramid, also called an age pyramid or age picture is a graphical illustration that shows the distribution of various age groups in a population (typically that of a country or region of the world), which forms the shape of a pyramid when the population is growing.
  • Total fertility rate
    The total fertility rate (TFR), sometimes also called the fertility rate, absolute /potential natality, period total fertility rate (PTFR) or total period fertility rate (TPFR) of a population is the average number of children that would be born to a woman over her lifetime if: 1.
  • Demographic transition
    Demographic transition (DT) refers to the transition from high birth and death rates to lower birth and death rates as a country or region develops from a pre-industrial to an industrialized economic system.

  • List of religious populations

  • Immigration by country
    This article delineates the issue of immigration in different countries.
  • Population growth
    In biology, population growth is the increase in the number of individuals in a population.
  • Infanticide (zoology)
    In animals, infanticide involves the killing of young offspring by a mature animal of its own species, and is studied in zoology, specifically in the field of ethology.
  • Sub-replacement fertility
    Sub-replacement fertility is a total fertility rate (TFR) that (if sustained) leads to each new generation being less populous than the older, previous one in a given area.
  • Two-child policy
    A two-child policy is a government-imposed limit of two children allowed per family or the payment of government subsidies only to the first two children.
  • Christian population growth
    Christian population growth is the population growth of the global Christian community.
  • World energy resources
    The world's energy resources can be divided into fossil fuel, nuclear fuel and renewable resources.
  • Population transfer
    Population transfer or resettlement is the movement of a large group of people from one region to another, often a form of forced migration imposed by state policy or international authority and most frequently on the basis of ethnicity or religion but also due to economic development.
