    Well if the population has a very uneven ratio of any of these factors, than growth will be limited since this wouldn't be favorable for mating. For instance, if the general population was made of very young individuals then growth would be slow until they reached the appropriate age to mate. Another example is if there are significantly more females than males or vice versa.
