How does population growth affect economic development? This is a classical question in economic analysis that has been discussed since the 18th century. In this paper, I argue that in order to answer the question it is necessary to differentiate between the growth of different age groups. The focus is on how the demographic transition brings about a transformation of the age structure. Four phases can be distinguished that demonstrate very different characteristics: The child phase, the young adult phase, the middle aged phase, and the old age phase. The empirical analysis concentrates on the Swedish case with comparison to other countries in Europe, America, Africa and Asia.
