The principal aim of this paper is to suggest two alternative methods for assessing the reasonableness of alternative sets of United Nations projections of population growth and urbanization. Both methods use models of urban population dynamics that are simple enough to be called transparent. The conclusion of the paper is that the most recent U.N. projections appear to be reasonable ones in the light of historical experience.
