Many of the systems analysis problems that have fostered simulation modeling seem to go through a methodological-theoretical progression that we call the theoretical transition. This transition begins when a few highly motivated individuals become converted to the belief that their field should adopt the more rigorous and quantified mode of research characteristic of the physical sciences and ends when the field achieves the metrics stage of development. Demography appears to be ready to enter this final stage and demometrics could be the outcome. The role of demometrics in research on migration and settlement is explored.
