This paper reviews recent attempts in demography and economics to design comprehensive dynamic demo-economic policy models. The policy models are formally stated as optimal control problems. Two groups of models are distinguished: Planning-oriented models, which originated in demography and which are designed to aid policymakers to solve practical problems; and theoretically-oriented models, which have been developed as part of the economic growth theory and which are intended to gain theoretical insights into demo-economic systems.
