Indicator List of Category: DEMOGRAPHY
Indicator Unit Definition
Crude Birth Rate Per Thousand Persons Crude birth rate indicates the number of live births occurring during the year, per 1,000 population estimated at midyear.
Crude Death Rate Per Thousand Persons Crude death rate indicates the number of deaths occurring during the year, per 1,000 population estimated at midyear.
Fertility Rate Births per Woman Total fertility rate represents the number of children that would be born to a woman if she were to live to the end of her childbearing years and bear children in accordance with current age-specific fertility rates.
Growth Rate of Population, Annual Percentage Annual population growth rate for year t is the exponential rate of growth of midyear population from year t-1 to t, expressed as a percentage. Population is based on the de facto definition of population, which counts all residents regardless of legal status or citizenship.
Growth Rate of Population, Natural Percentage Subtracting the crude death rate from the crude birth rate provides the rate of natural increase, which is equal to the population growth in the absence of migration.
International Migrant Stock, (% of Population) Percentage International migrant stock is the number of people born in a country other than that in which they live. It also includes refugees. The data used to estimate the international migrant stock at a particular time are obtained mainly from population censuses. The estimates are derived from the data on foreign-born population--people who have residence in one country but were born in another country.
International Migrant Stock, Total Number International migrant stock is the number of people born in a country other than that in which they live. It also includes refugees. The data used to estimate the international migrant stock at a particular time are obtained mainly from population censuses. The estimates are derived from the data on foreign-born population--people who have residence in one country but were born in another country.
Life Expectancy at Birth, Female Years Life expectancy at birth indicates the number of years a newborn female infant would live if prevailing patterns of mortality at the time of its birth were to stay the same throughout its life.
Life Expectancy at Birth, Male Years Life expectancy at birth indicates the number of years a newborn male infant would live if prevailing patterns of mortality at the time of its birth were to stay the same throughout its life.
Life Expectancy at Birth, Total Years Life expectancy at birth indicates the number of years a newborn infant would live if prevailing patterns of mortality at the time of its birth were to stay the same throughout its life.
Migration, Net Number Net migration is the net total of migrants during the period, that is, the total number of immigrants less the annual number of emigrants, including both citizens and noncitizens. Data are five-year estimates.
Number of Households Number A household consists of all persons—related family members and all unrelated persons—who occupy a housing unit and have no other usual address. A house, an apartment, a group of rooms, or a single room is regarded as a housing unit when occupied or intended for occupancy as separate living quarters. A householder is the person (or one of the persons) in whose name the housing unit is owned or rented. The term is never applied to either husbands or wives in married-couple families but relates only to persons in families maintained by either men or women without a spouse.
Population Density Persons per Square Kilometre Population density is midyear population divided by land area in square kilometers. Population is based on the de facto definition of population, which counts all residents regardless of legal status or citizenship--except for refugees not permanently settled in the country of asylum, who are generally considered part of the population of their country of origin. Land area is a country's total area, excluding area under inland water bodies, national claims to continental shelf, and exclusive economic zones. In most cases the definition of inland water bodies includes major rivers and lakes.
Population, Ages 0-14 Number Population between the ages 0 to 14. Population is based on the de facto definition of population.
Population, Ages 0-14, % of Total Percentage Population between the ages 0 to 14 as a percentage of the total population. Population is based on the de facto definition of population.
Population, Ages 15-64 Number Population between the ages 15 to 64. Population is based on the de facto definition of population.
Population, Ages 15-64, % of Total Percentage Population between the ages 15 to 64 as a percentage of the total population. Population is based on the de facto definition of population.
Population, Ages 65+ Number Population ages 65 and above. Population is based on the de facto definition of population.
Population, Ages 65+, % of Total Percentage Population ages 65 and above as a percentage of the total population. Population is based on the de facto definition of population.
Population, Female Number Female population is the number of population that is female. Population is based on the de facto definition of population.
Population, Female, % of Total Percentage Female population is the number of population that is female. Population is based on the de facto definition of population.
Population, Rural Number Rural population refers to people living in rural areas as defined by national statistical offices. It is calculated as the difference between total population and urban population.
Population, Rural, % of Total Percentage Rural population refers to people living in rural areas as defined by national statistical offices. It is calculated as the difference between total population and urban population.
Population, Total Number Total population is based on the de facto definition of population, which counts all residents regardless of legal status or citizenship--except for refugees not permanently settled in the country of asylum, who are generally considered part of the population of their country of origin. The values shown are midyear estimates.
Population, Urban Number Urban population refers to people living in urban areas as defined by national statistical offices. It is calculated using World Bank population estimates and urban ratios from the United Nations World Urbanization Prospects. Aggregation of urban and rural population may not add up to total population because of different country coverages.
Population, Urban, % of Total Percentage Urban population refers to people living in urban areas as defined by national statistical offices. The data are collected and smoothed by United Nations Population Division.
Refugee Population by Country or Territory of Asylum Number Refugees are people who are recognized as refugees under the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees or its 1967 Protocol, the 1969 Organization of African Unity Convention Governing the Specific Aspects of Refugee Problems in Africa, people recognized as refugees in accordance with the UNHCR statute, people granted refugee-like humanitarian status, and people provided temporary protection. Asylum seekers--people who have applied for asylum or refugee status and who have not yet received a decision or who are registered as asylum seekers--are excluded. Palestinian refugees are people (and their descendants) whose residence was Palestine between June 1946 and May 1948 and who lost their homes and means of livelihood as a result of the 1948 Arab-Israeli conflict. Country of asylum is the country where an asylum claim was filed and granted.
