Demographics Test

Canada's dependency load 31%
Without immigration, is Canada's population likely to decline or increase? Decline
What is Canada's doubling time? 87.5
Why is it not always possible to make direct comparisons in the number of births or number of deaths between countries? Bc every country has a different population density
How can we make comparisons between countries? Rates
Dependency load age group? 0-15 and 65+
Non-dependent (working) age group? 15-64
Why might the dependency load ages have been chosen if they do not reflect the reality of who is dependent in countries like Canada? Overall average ages
Baby boomer? Ppl born in 1950s - 1960s, their births contributed to significant population growth in North America
How to calculate birth/death/immigration/emigration rate Divide population by 1000, divide number of births/deaths/emigration/immigration by new "population"
How to calculate natural increase rate Subtract death rate from birth rate
How to calculate net migration rate Subtract emigration rate from immigration rate
How to calculate population growth rate Add net migration rate and natural increase rate
How to calculate population growth rate as a percentage? Multiply population growth rate by 100
How to calculate doubling time Divide 70 by population growth rate as percentage
Stage 1 of Demographic Transition Model High BR, high DR; no countries like this since 1800's
Stage 2 of Demographic Transition Model Low DR, high BR; more healthcare + medicine innovations, Canada in 1950s - 1960s, under-developed countries today
Stage 3 of Demographic Transition Model Lower BR, DR remains low, Most developed countries today
Stage 4 of Demographic Transition Model Equally low BR + DR, some European countries, Canada is reaching this point
Why BR will always decline much slower than DR Bc ppl are much more opposed to birth control than death control, religious reasons
Demographics Study of population numbers, distribution, trends + issues
Birth rate number of births per 1000 ppl
Death rate number of deaths per 1000 ppl
Immigration rate number of new Canadians who have immigrated here from another country per 1000 ppl of Canada's population
Emigration rate number of ppl per 1000 population in 1 yr who emigrate out
Natural increase rate difference between birth rate + death rate of country
net migration rate difference between ppl immigrating to a country + ppl emigrating from same country
population growth measurement that combines both natural increase + net migration to calculate overall growth of country's population
compounding growth on top of existing growth
doubling time number of yrs it takes for population to double
rule of 70 estimation of how many yrs it will take for country's population to double
population pyramid series of horizontal bar graphs for the male population next to a similar series of bar graphs for female population
dependency load portion of population not in workforce
