Many thanks to Rei Ravenholt, former Director of the Office of Population at USAID, for this paper, which is a talk he gave at the 1976 Airlie House conference on adolescent fertility, which I attended. While some of the data has changed since that time, the paper is of relevance today. The chart on page 3 showing the population growth implications of generation time and family size is of particular interest.
