Expert's answer

Your definition is ok, only the aspect of 'chenge of time' is not necessary.

Demography is the scientific study of human populations primarily with respect to their size, their structure and their development; it takes into account the quantitative aspects of their general characteristics.

Other definitions include;

The study of statistics such as births, deaths, income, or the incidence of disease, which illustrate the changing structure of human populations. Oxford

 - the statistical study of human populations especially with reference to size and density, distribution, and vital statistics. Merriam Webster

Any definition you might choose would depend on the subject matter you want to consider and the level of study/education of your audience.
