Definitions

  • Age 10-14 per 1000: Total population - Age 10-14, as of April 26, 2005. Figures expressed per thousand population for the same year.
  • Age 100-104: Total population - Age 100-104, as of April 26, 2005
  • Age 15-19 per 1000: Total population - Age 15-19, as of April 26, 2005. Figures expressed per thousand population for the same year.
  • Age 30-34 > % of the total: Total population - Age 30-34 - % of the total, as of April 26, 2005
  • Age 45-49: Total population - Age 45-49, as of April 26, 2005
  • Age 50-54: Total population - Age 50-54, as of April 26, 2005

  • Age 60-64 per 1000: Total population - Age 60-64, as of April 26, 2005. Figures expressed per thousand population for the same year.
  • Age 70-74: Total population - Age 70-74, as of April 26, 2005

  • Age 80-84 > % of the total: Total population - Age 80-84 - % of the total, as of April 26, 2005
  • Evolution of the population > Total fertility rates: The tables refer to the resident population. For countries such as France, the United Kingdom and the United States which have overseas colonies, protectorates or other territorial possessions, their populations are generally excluded. For full details, see Sources below.

    Growth rates are the annual changes in the population and are the result of births, deaths and net migration during the year.

    The total fertility rate is the total number of children that would be born to each woman if she were to live to the end of her child-bearing years and give birth to children in that period in agreement with the prevailing age-specific fertility rates.
  • Regional Population > Index of geographic concentration of population > Small regions: The number of inhabitants of a given region, the total population, can be either the average annual population or the population at a specific date during the year considered. The average population during a calendar year is generally calculated as the arithmetic mean of the population on 1 January of two consecutive years (it is also referred to as the mean population). However, some countries estimate it on a date close to 1 July (mid-year population).

    The index of geographic concentration offers a picture of the spatial distribution of the population, as it takes into account the area of each region.

    The index compares the economic weight and the geographic weight over all regions in a given country and is constructed to account for both within- and between-country differences in the size of all regions. It lies between 0 (no concentration) and 100 (maximum concentration) and is suitable for international comparisons.
  • Age 80-84 per 1000: Total population - Age 80-84, as of April 26, 2005. Figures expressed per thousand population for the same year.
