Basic Demographic Measures and Concepts

  1. A country X has the following demographic data

Population as at 1st January 2007………………………………………………13  413 567

Births between 1st January and 31th December 2014………………...  2 345 240

Deaths between 1st January and 31th December 2014…………………  900 654

Immigrants during the period…………………………………………………..     2 434 201

Emigrants during the period……………………………………………………       956 156

 

Compute the following;

a)      Population for the country X as at 31st December 2014

b)      Population Change

c)       % Change of Population

d)      Average annual Increase

e)      Natural increase

f)       The net migration

g)      Gross migration

h)      Does the demographic equation balance? Show proof.

i)        Estimate the growth rate, r between 1st January 2007 and 31st December 2014

j)        Estimate the doubling time, tripling time and the quadrupling time.

k)      CBR

l)        CDR

m)    CRIM

n)      CROM

  • o)      CGR

Mortality

 

 

  1. Table 2.1 shows the total number of deaths in certain years, together with the estimated mid-year population for those years, for certain countries in Latin America. Use them to calculate the crude death rates for each of these countries.

(i) Calculate the crude death rates for males, females and the total population for England and Wales in 1995.

(ii) Calculate the age specific death rates for males, females and total population. Comment on the observed mortality pattern.

(iii) Calculate the sex ratio of age-specific death rates. Interpret your findings.

 

  1. 4.      Below two tables are displayed, one representing cohort data (Table 2.4) and one representing period data (Table 2.5). Draw one Lexis diagram based on the data in both tables and put all the numbers from both tables in this single Lexis diagram.
