For the second set of experiments, runs were terminated at the end of year 700 (the initial year being 100), or when the population exceeded 800 in­ dividuals, or when the population decreased to some fraction (usually one-fourth) of its initial size. Calculations and summary information were provided on a ten-year basis. Abbreviations and Codes To simplify presentation of the results and dis­ cussion, the following notation will be used: For the first set of experiments, S-01(100)A stands for the initial agestructured population of size 100 (50 males and 50 females) approximating the stable population of the model South mortality level 1 life table with an implied annual rate of growth of five per thousand; S-01(200)A is defined as above, but with an initial population size of 200 individuals; S-24(100)A and S-24(200)A refer to the 24 SIMULATION OF HUMAN POPULATIONS initial age-structured populations for the model South mortality level 24 life table; and S-01-P and S-24-P refer to the fertility and mortality schedules for the two different levels of mortality.
