This article is a preliminary attempt at identifying some of the linkages between (a) different demographic processes and (b) between demographic and economic phenomena in rural Malabar during the fifty-year period beginning 1871. By focusing on the demographic-economic linkages the author tries to relate the discussion to the larger debate regarding the status of demography in historical explanations of change. This paper is divided into three sections. Section I discusses some of the representative works regarding the location of the demographic variable among the multiplicity of determinants in a social formation. Section II is a note on the area, the data base and demographic movements. In Section III the interrelations between demographic change and other historical processes are examined. Finally, some tentative conclusions are advanced on the determinants and mediating structures of demographic change.
