    • Factors Affecting the Size of a Country's Population
      • Death Rate
        • The number of deaths that happen per 100 people per year.

      • Birth Rate
        • The number of live births per 1000 of the population per year.
        • Birth rates have decreased in the prior years for a number of reasons: 1. Because childhood has become an economic liability and extremely expensive. 2. There's been an increase in healthcare and so a decrease in infant mortality rates, meaning people are having less children because thy know they will live. 3. The feminisation of the economy means more women are work-focused.
        • In 1901 there were 1,093,000 births, but in 2013, only 698,512 babies were born.
    • The dependency ratio is the relationship between the size of the working or productive part of the population and the size of the non-working or dependent part of the population.
