Demographic analysis  (DEMOGRAPHIC analysis)


Demographic analysis 1 is that branch of formal demography which controls for the effect of population size and structure on demographic phenomena 2 by isolating the effects of each demographic variable from the others, the latter of which are called disturbing phenomena 3★. It also studies the relations between demographic variables and how they interact to form population structures. A distinction is made between cohort analysis 4 or generational analysis 4 which focuses on a well defined cohort (cf. 117-2) followed through time, and cross-sectional analysis 5 or period analysis 5 which focuses on the demographic phenomena that occur during a precise time interval (such as a calendar year) among several cohorts.
