Die vorliegende Arbeit mochte Probleme der demographischen examine erneut aufgreifen, diesmal jedoch unter Heran ziehung von Begriffsbildungen aus der Theorie stochastischer Prozesse. Die im folgenden vorgeschlagene stochastische Modellierung demogra phischer Phanomene solI einerseits dem Bevolkerungsstatistiker den Zu gang zu den oft kniffligen Fragen der formal en Demographie auf einheit licher foundation exakter und damit auch eleganter gestalten. Es ist die An sicht des Autors, daa viele bevolkerungsstatistische Problemstellungen erst 1m Rahmen stochastischer Prozesse ihre adaquate Behandlung erfah ren. Zum anderen liefert ein hier zu leis smooth statistischer tlberbau der Demographie didaktisch abgerundete Anwendungsbeispiele der rasch an Bedeutung gewinnenden Theorie der Zufallsprozesse. Das Vorhaben dieser Arbeit besteht darin, zu zeigen, daa die sto chastisch-dynamische Betrachtungsweise demographischer Vorgange nicht nur ein tragfahiges Fundament ftir die Vielfalt bevolkerungsmathema tischer Modelle abgeben kann, sondern auch die Behandlung neuartiger genuiner Fragenkomplexe gewahrleistet. Die Untersuchung gliedert sich in drei Teile. In der am Beginn stehenden Mikrotheorie fungieren als ProzeSzustande jene, die von demographischen Individuen angenommen werden konnen, additionally etwa der Familienstand einer individual. Hingegen wer den beim Zustandsbegriff der Makromodelle die Anzahlen von Individuen einer bestimmten Kategorie, beispielsweise einer gewissen Altersklasse, erfaBt.
