This chapter examines the impact of demographic change on economic growth, using convergence-type models. Demographic trends over the period 1960-95 were evaluated. It is shown that demography had a positive impact on economic growth. Fertility and mortality changes accounted for nearly 22% of changes in output growth, corresponding to 21% of 1.50%, the average growth of per capita output over the period.

Keywords: demographic change; economic growth; fertility; mortality
