Προοπτικές της θνησιμότητας, της αναπαραγωγικότητας και της γήρανσης στην Ελλάδα: 2011-2051
Prospects of mortality, reproductivity and aging of the population of Greece: 2011-2051
Over a year a new generation of people is born due to births, while at the same time existing generations are shrinking because of deaths. This regenerative demographic process is called reproductivity and describes how a population is regenerated and replaced by new members, causing a tendency to increase, decrease or stabilization of its size, and changes to its age structure. The aim of this dissertation is to study the effect of reproduction and mortality on the age structure of the population of Greece for the period 2011-2051 by combining the mortality and reproductivity of the population on the basis of life tables and the model of the Stable Population. Various scenarios of fertility and mortality developments of the population are adopted for the purpose of the study and official census population data and vital statistics are used.
