This study analyzes the demographic changes in a Toba population of northern Argentina. It estimates the population growth rate, constructs population pyramids, and calculates the sex ratio, infant mortality rate, and global fecundity rate. The population growth rate of this Toba population is similar to the overall provincial growth rate. This analysis shows a rejuvenation of the population, a moderate decline in infant mortality, and an increase in fertility. It discusses the need to develop more integrative models that consider the demographic variations in these ethnic groups
