Quotation Lutz, Wolfgang. 2017. World Population, Education and Health. In Nachhaltige Zeitenwende? Die Agenda 2030 als Herausforderung für Wissenschaft und Politik, Hrsg. Prof. Dr. Jörg Hacker , 35-39. Halle (Saale): Nationale Akademie der Wissenschaften.




Demography can be defined as the mathematics of groups of people aimed at analysing the changing size and composition of human popula- tions. Populations change primarily through three factors: fertility, mortality and migration. Recently, there have been efforts to expand this model to “multidimensional demography”, adding a population’s edu- cational attainment distribution and its labour force or health status as additional dimensions to the conventional model. Human capital is in- creasingly considered an important driver of development and has a key role to play with regard to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
