Demographers say demographic variables, especially population growth rates and fertility rates, are currently inappropriate and have presented warnings. On the other hand, studying the dimensions and constituents of authority and national security indicate that there are demographic indicators in it. The high impact of demographic indicators on national authority and national security and the inappropriate process of these indicators led to this study to be taken into account and how these indicators were reviewed, so that the results could provide areas for effective decision making and avoidance of surprise.
The research was carried out in three areas of population, authority and national security, applied in a randomized and mixed manner. The qualitative analysis of literature led to the indexation of 35 demographic indicators.
