Census Tract
Small permanent statistical subdivisions of a county that are updated by local participants prior the the decennial census
Demographic Accounting Equation
An equation that summarizes the amount of growth or decline in a population within a country during a particular time period taking into account different factors
Pop(t+1) = Pop(t) + B - D + MI - Mo
Pop(t+1) = Population in time t+1, the year following the current year.
Pop(t) = Population in time t, the current.
B = Births
D = Deaths
MI = In-migrants
Mo = Out-migrants
Demographic Dividend
A period when fertility rates fall due to significant reductions in child and infant mortality rates. This leads to an return of economic growth.
Demographic Momentum
Tendency for a growing population to continue growing after a fertility decline
Demographic Transition Model
Demography

Population Density
Population per unit area/volume
