This Demonstration starts with two people (Adam and Eve) at year 0. After some years they get their first child. Each year after that, they may get a new child or not, depending on the predefined number of children.


Observe the effect of using birth control (reducing the number of children) compared with increasing the age of first birth. You may be surprised!
