Population progress slowed the world over within the final many years of the 20th century, altering considerably our view of the long run. The 21st century is probably going to work out the tip to global inhabitants development and develop into the century of inhabitants getting older, marked by means of low fertility and ever-increasing lifestyles expectancy. those developments have caused many to foretell a dark destiny attributable to an unheard of financial burden of inhabitants getting older.

Others expect medical breakthroughs in the future, which will lead to rapid mortality decline among the elderly (Vaupel 1997). The empirical evidence is not conclusive either. While human longevity generally improves in industrialized countries, mortality for the oldest old stagnates or even increases slightly in a few countries, such as in Denmark (Denmark Statistik 2000), the USA (Kranczer 1997), the Netherlands and Norway (Nusselder and Mackenbach 2000). At the same time, survival curves show very little or no sign of further rectangularization since the 1950s in some countries (USA, Sweden and Japan; see Wilmoth and Horiuchi 1999), while in other countries the curves continue to become more rectangular, after the rapid developments into that direction until the 1950s (France, England, the Netherlands and Switzerland; see Robine 2001).

The method was developed by Wrigley, Schofield and Oeppen, see Wrigley and Schofield (1982). It starts with a known age structure at time T and births and deaths counts for an earlier period (0,T). Next, using a number of assumptions, it calculates age structures for that period, as well as age-specific vital rates and net-migration. Unlike IP, where population totals are specified externally (so that migration can be handled), 34 N. Keilman BP computes population totals within the model. BP has been criticized on two grounds (Lee 1985).
