Population and Development Research Agenda

Understanding how demographic change affects economic growth helps developing countries allocate scarce resources to accelerate economic growth and poverty reduction. A CGD Working Group reviewed what is known about how population dynamics (e.g. fertility, mortality and migration) affect economic outcomes, and recommended a research agenda to fill gaps in that knowledge. This work has now concluded.
