Java Demography, an application that simulates exponential growth in age-structured populations, enables users to manipulate values for age-specific mortality rates, fertility rates, and initial population characteristics.

Through observation of how population characteristics change through time, users of Java Demography can investigate important questions in population biology, develop a deeper understanding of fundamental population concepts, and explore issues related to population policy.
