This report is the Users' Manual that accompanies PMEDS-D, the demographic component of a new Windows-based version of the MEDS (Models of the Economic-Demographic System) software. PMEDS-D is designed for projecting and/or simulating the population, labour force, and number of households for Canada as a whole, for each of the provinces, and for the territories. The projections are made year-by-year, and extend as far as 2041. The time path of projections is determined by assumptions about fertility, mortality, international and interprovincial migration, household formation, labour force participation and unemployment. "Standard", "high growth", and "slow growth" projections are provided. It is easy to explore the implications of alternative assumptions and to input newly available data.
