Demography is a science of population. Demographic issues are as old as humankind. The issues of life and death, survival, birth, marriage/cohabitation, and ageing, are deeply rooted in man’s biological, social and spiritual being. The knowledge of population growth appeared within many sciences making demography an interdisciplinary science related to statistics, sociology, economics, medicine, biology, anthropology, psychology and other scientific disciplines.
Demography is a broad social science discipline concerned with the study of human populations, primary with respect to their size, their structure and their development. Demographers deal with the collection, presentation and analysis of data relating to the basic life-cycle events and experiences of people: birth, marriage, divorce, household and family formation, employment, ageing, migration and death. The discipline emphasises empirical investigation of population processes, including the conceptualisation and measurement of these processes and the study of their determinants and consequences. The field of demography is also concerned with the broader nature of social and economic change, and with the impact of demographics change on the natural environment.
