Africa is poised on the edge of a potential takeoff to sustained economic growth. This takeoff can be abetted by a demographic dividend from the changes in population age structure. Declines in child mortality, followed by declines in fertility, produce a 'bulge' generation and a large number of working age people, giving a boost to the economy. In the short run lower fertility leads to lower youth dependency rates and greater female labor force participation outside the home. Smaller family sizes also mean more resources to invest in the health and education per child boosting worker productivity. In the long run increased life spans from health improvements mean that this large, high-earning cohort will also want to save for retirement, creating higher savings and investments, leading to further productivity gains.

Generalizations about the lack of demographic change and of progress in meeting the MDGs in sub-Saharan Africa are commonplace, but they are often misleading and belie the socio-cultural change. This book compares Ethiopia with other African countries, demonstrating the uniqueness of an African-type demographic transition: a mix of poverty-related negative factors with positive education, health and higher age-of-marriage trends that are pushing this population to accelerate the demographic transition and meet most of the MDGs.

The development of a quantitative nonlinear theory of the world population is of interest for interdisciplinary research in anthropology and demography, history and sociology, for population genetics and epidemiology, for studies in evolution of humankind and the origin of man. The model also provides insight into the stability of growth and the present predicament of humankind, and provides a setting for discussing the main global problems.
