We study discrete-time population models where the nearest future of an individual may depend on the individual's life-stage (age and reproduction history) and the current population size. A criterion is given for whether there is a positive probability that the population survives forever. We identify the cases when population size grows exponentially and linearly and show that in the latter population size scaled by time is asymptotically Γ-distributed.
