Displaying 1 - 10 of 13

Fertility Rate - Total (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.

Life expectancy at birth, female

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.

Life expectancy at birth, male

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.

Mortality Rate - Under 5 (per 1'000 Live Births)

Under-five mortality rate is the probability per 1,000 that a newborn baby will die before reaching age five, if subject to current age-specific mortality rates.

Population aged 0-14

Population, age 0-14 (% of total) is the population between the ages of 0 and 14 as a percentage of the total population.

Population aged 15-64

Total population between the ages 15 to 64 is the number of people who could potentially be economically active.

Population aged 65 and above

Population ages 65 and above as a percentage of the total population. 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 the country of origin.

Population growth

Population growth (annual %) is the exponential rate of growth of midyear population from year t-1 to t, expressed as a percentage.

Population living in slums (% of urban population)

Population living in slums is the proportion of the urban population living in slum households. A slum household is defined as a group of individuals living under the same roof lacking one or more of the following conditions: access to improved water, access to improved sanitation, sufficient living area, and durability of housing.
