crude death rate
The number of deaths yearly per thousand people in a population
Multi-stage model based on Western Europe's experience on changes of population growth exhibited by countries undergoing industrialization. High birth rates and death rates are followed by plunging death rates producing a huge net population gain, this is followed by the convergence of birth rates and death rates at a low overall level.
stationary population level
the level at which a national population ceases to grow
structure of a population in terms of age, sex and other properties such as marital status and education
Visual representations of the age and sex composition of a population whereby the percentage of each age group is represented by a horizontal bar the length of which represents its relationship to the total population. The males in each age group are represented to the left of the center line of each horizontal bar. The females in each age group are represented to the right of the center line.
infant mortality rate
a figure that describes the number of babies that die within the first year of their lives in a given population
child mortality rate
A figure that describes the number of children that die between the first and fifth years of their lives in a given population
