DemographyLab will help you learn about the current demographics for human populations of seven countries. You can use this lab to investigate how population size, population structure, mortality rate, and fertility rate influence the size and growth of human populations over time. For simplicity, the effects of immigration and emigration are not included in DemographyLab.
