Abstract : This report analyzes demographic patterns in the less developed world and discusses some preliminary implications for the U.S. Army. The three major demographic trends occurring in the less developed world are rapidly expanding populations, increasing urbanization, and the growing number of displaced people. These trends are important to the U.S. Army because each can exacerbate existing problems in the countries affected by them. These trends can also lead to, and will affect, the nature of future conflict. Consequently, this will have implications for future U.S. Army roles, missions, and operations.
