Abstract

Empirical studies show that the fertility rate (mortality rate) exhibits an inverted u‐shaped dynamic in some countries, while it decreases monotonically in other countries. This paper formulates the concept of public health infrastructure and constructs a growth model that replicates various historically observed patterns of fertility and mortality rates.
