Terms and Definitions

Population Analysis refers to the study that aims to understand a population's size, structure, and distribution, and how it changes over time due to births, deaths, migration, and aging. These analyses can provide invaluable insights into demographic trends and patterns which can assist in policy-making, planning and research.

Population Trends refer to quantifiable patterns and changes seen over time in population statistics. These can demonstrate growth, stability, or decline in a population and are often connected to variables such as births, deaths, migration in or out of a region, and aging.

Total Population is a term used to denote the absolute number of individuals or inhabitants in a specified area. It is often used as a basic measure of a region's size and can be a determinant in distribution of resources, representation, and other significant policy decisions.

Demographics pertains to the statistical characteristics of a population. These often include age, sex, income, migration patterns and population growth. Such data is significant in the analysis of broader social and economic trends.

Population Structure refers to the composition of a population, typically broken down by categories such as age and sex. This structure provides a demographic snapshot at a point in time, which can be compared over time periods to identify trends.

Birth Rate is a demographic measure representing the number of live births per 1,000 of the population per year.

Death Rate refers to the number of deaths annually per 1,000 people in a population. It is an essential element for studying population trends as it directly relates to population growth or decline.

Migration refers to the movement of people from one geographical location to another with the intentions of settling, permanently or temporarily, at a new location. This change in population, whether inward (immigration) or outward (emigration), influences the population size and structure.

Aging Population is a demographic term that refers to a shift in the age distribution of a population towards older ages, usually indicated by an increase in the population's median and/or mean age, a decline in the proportion of the population composed of children, or a rise in the proportion of the population that is elderly.
