The Population Program at IIASA deals with various aspects of population aging phenomena in developed countries. The demographic future of populations can be estimated using equations for population dynamics. The variety of assumptions about the demographic characteristics which are appropriate for any particular population can be realized in various forms of boundary conditions for partial differential equations. This paper by Anna Lewandowska describes a convenient interactive procedure which can be used on an IBM PC (or compatible) for calculating such demographic equations. The procedure is combined with a Lexis program developed in IIASA's Population Program that allows to see the results of calculations in the form of shaded contour maps on the color monitor of a PC. This tool is useful for analyzing the dynamic properties of the age-specific population structure.
