An interactive tool developed by the Population Council provides evidence and analysis to help countries develop policies and programs that strike the right balance between demographic change and social, economic, and environmental goals. The tool is designed to help policymakers and other decision-makers understand the contribution of different demographic factors (e.g., fertility, mortality, migration, and age structure) to population growth.
