Demographers know that a slowly increasing population has a higher proportion of old people than one that is increasing rapidly, and that differences in birth rates have a larger influence on the age distribution than do differences in death rates. They often claim that a poor country whose population is growing rapidly will increase its per capita income faster if it lowers its birth rate rather than maintaining it at a high level.
