The demographic foundation of nations is remarkably resilient to losses with the causes of that resiliency not uniform cross-nationally. Countries in the early stages of development have very high birth rates and a growing youthful population with only the most extreme cases of genocide detrimentally affecting their long-term population. They are resilient due to the scale of potential population growth. More developed countries with near-stagnant population growth and an increasingly aging population need the phenomena of a postwar baby boom or increased migration to recover. Resiliency can only come from the change in demographical rates. This chapter evaluates casualties, gender ratios, disrupted age distributions, migrations, and the differing experiences of recovery.

Keywords:   genocide, population growth, gender ratio, demography, refugees, migrations, demographic transition, recovery, war
