Agent-Based Computational Demography (ABCD) goals at beginning a brand new circulate of study between social scientists whose pursuits lie in realizing demographic behaviour. The ebook takes a micro-demographic (agent-based) standpoint and illustrates the possibilities of laptop simulation as an relief in conception development. The chapters of the publication, written by way of major specialists both in demography or in agent-based modelling, tackle numerous key questions. Why will we want agent-based computational demography? How can ABCD be utilized to the examine of migrations, relatives demography, and historic demography? What are the peculiarities of agent-based types as utilized to the demography of human populations? ABCD is of curiosity to all scientists attracted to learning demographic behaviour, in addition to to laptop scientists and modellers who're trying to find a promising box of application.
