how does the age structure affect the growth rate of a population

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

The age structure determines potential for future growth of specific age groups, as well as the total population. 

thus, in this case;  equal age distribution = very slow, steady growth
large % of children and teenagers = very rapid growth.............there is a powerful built-in momentum to increase in population size. 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
