Abstract

The focus of IIASA's Population Program is population aging, particularly in the IIASA member nations. Changes in mortality, but to a much greater extent changes in fertility, account for the present aging of the IIASA countries. This paper discusses the anatomy of the most pronounced fertility change in recent times, the post-war baby boom. The presentation makes much use of newly-available graphical techniques, which allow the reader to visualize the demographic trends in great detail. The graphical tools also facilitate comparative analyses, such as that presented by the authors.
