Population Growth Rate

Average exponential rate of growth of the population over a given period.  It is calculated as ln(Pt/P0)/t where t is the length of the period. It is expressed as a percentage.

Rate of Natural Population Increase

Crude birth rate minus the crude death rate. Represents the portion of population growth (or decline) determined exclusively by births and deaths.

Sex Ratio of Total Population

Number of males per 100 females in the population.

Median Age of Population

Age that divides the population in two parts of equal size, that is, there are as many persons with ages above the median as there are with ages below the median.

Population Density

Population per square Kilometre.
