Abstract

This paper studies causal relation between the old-age dependency ratio and population change factors (fertility, mortality and migration), using the data of the administrative districtions of South Korea between 2005 to 2011. The main results show there is not panel Granger causality between the old-age dependency ratio and fertility but between the old-age dependency ratio and mortality/migration.
