Population trends refer to the patterns, behaviors, or changes observed in a population over a certain period of time. Trends can include growth or decline in numbers, demographic changes, changes in population distribution, and migration patterns.

Demographics are compiled statistical data that provide specific information about a population, such as age, gender, income, race, and ethnicity.

This term refers to the arrangement or spread of people living in a specific area. It may be measured in terms of geographical patterns or densities in relation to urban, suburban, and rural areas.

Migration refers to the movement of people from one location to another. In the context of population trends, it can significantly impact the total population numbers. Migration can be internal (within the country) or external (from or to other countries).

The birth rate is the number of live births per 1,000 individuals in a population for a year. It's a crucial factor in population growth rate calculations.

The death rate is the number of deaths per 1,000 individuals in a population for a year. It's an essential factor in determining population growth or decline.

Population density refers to the number of individuals per unit area (typically per square kilometer or mile). It is a measure used to frame a picture of how crowded or sparsely populated an area is.

This is the rate at which the number of individuals in a population increases through birth and immigration or decreases through death and emigration over a specific period. It is usually expressed as a percentage.
