To clarify:

a) you already have data on mortality, fertility and migration, and

b) you want to load these data into Stata and then "press a button" to get the population forecasts.

If this describes the situation, then I don't know if there are user written programs that do what you want. But I am no expert... others might know about such a program.

Why don't you calculate the forecasts on your own using the tool Stata provides for time series forecasting?

Best luck
Oliver

Dear Oliver,

I want projection or forecast for demographic indicators like
population of country or region which
  would require inputs like mortality, fertility and international
migration. I have seen some packages like R
and the link below which does such but I would like to use stata and I
am wondering if there are any user-written
package for this.

to what you want to do!
