Population and Poverty Projections for Nicaragua 1995 - 2015

Lykke Andersen ()

No 03/2003, Development Research Working Paper Series from Institute for Advanced Development Studies

Abstract: This paper makes detailed population and poverty projections that take into account expected demographic changes (in terms of fertility, mortality, migration, and education) as well as differentials in social mobility by household type. Such projections could be useful for a variety of purposes ranging from assessment of necessary social investments (education facilities, health facilities, pension systems, etc), projections of the size of the working age population who will demand jobs, targeting of poverty alleviation policies, projections of migration flows, to negotiations with external donors and creditors.
