Demographic phenomena are of considerable importance in economic development: while some authors are primarily interested in aggregates such as the volume of production or, the volume of consumption, notions such as production or consumption per capita taking into account the factor "total number of population" are in practice of undoubted interest, Hence it would seem desirable to begin any economic and social planning by a sound population analysis, extended by projections (population forecasts) : these basic elements will enable various consequences to be foreseen, relating in particular to various needs of the population in the future, personal needs such as food, or household needs.
