Record type: Article


Proposals are made for decomposing net change of population means and totals through time into components which are interpretable and lead to a better understanding of net change. The framework is extended to allow for non-stationary populations with births, deaths and changing characteristics of continuing members. Design and estimation issues are investigated and a number of numerical examples given. /// Nous proposons une methode pour decomposer les changements nets au cours du temps des moyennes et des tailles de population, en composantes qui ont une interpretation et qui menant a une meilleure comprehension des changements nets. Cette approche est generalisee afin de permettre l'etude de populations nonstationaires avec naissances et morts, dont les survivants ont des characteristiques variables. Le probleme du plan de sondage et celui de l'estimation sont etudies et plusieurs exemples numeriques sont donnes.
