Abstract

In this report the author has pursued both a narrow and a broad interpretation of the task of evaluating the demographic component of the Korean Agricultural Sector Study. In Part I, he has evaluated the projection model very narrowly in terms of its acceptability to demographic theorists and practitioners. In this section he has dealt with technical demographic relationships at more length certainly than his own interests would normally require, and probably more than will appear necessary to some readers. Hopefully his reasons for pursuing this subject so extensively will be made clear in Part I itself; in any event, this section is intended primarily for the KASS team, and had time permitted, would have been reduced to a technical appendix. In Part II he looks at the assumptions regarding demographic phenomena made by KASS in employing the demographic component. In Part III the author broadens our concerns to consider the actual role of population variables in KASS, and in Part IV looks at the "ideal" role that population and other sectoral variables ought to play in an agricultural sector study, noting the existing gap between the two. In light of the latter, he finally examines briefly the future direction of demographic/economic research which an extended KASS project should undertake.
