We have carried out a polysystem analysis of the population dynamics by using a variety of hypotheses and their respective models based on different system interpretations of the phenomenon under investigation. Each of the models supplements standard dynamic equations for explaining the effects observed. A qualitative model-based analysis is made of the age-specific male mortality for a Siberian industrial city. The study revealed the tendencies for background mortality to increase with age and over time, which characterizes in an integral manner the influence of socio-ecological factors on the decline in population viability. It is shown that these tendencies are similar for different years and for different population age groups.
