Demography

Demography is the scientific study of human populations and other species that inhabit our planet. The word "Demography" is derived from two Greek words, "Demos" meaning "people" and "Graphia" meaning "description". The field of demography involves analyzing various characteristics of populations, such as age, gender, ethnicity, education, income, and many more. It provides insights into the dynamics of population growth, migration patterns, and family structures. Below you can find all the individuals who live or have lived on Earth.
