Explanation
Total Population refers to the total number of people alive at a certain point of time within a given area.
The annual statistics on total population is taken at midnight, the 3lst of December, not including residents in Taiwan province, Chinese compatriots in Hong Kong and Macao and overseas Chinese.
Urban Population and Rural Population There are three definitions.
(1) The first definition (by the administrative system):
Urban Population refers to total population under the jurisdiction of city and the population of towns under the jurisdiction of counties.
Rural Population refers to total population of townships under the jurisdiction of counties.
(2) The second definition (by the permanent residence):
Urban Population refers to total population of districts under the jurisdiction of a city with district establishment, the population of street committees under the jurisdiction of a city without district establishment, population of resident-committees of towns under the jurisdiction of a city without district establishment, and the of resident-committees of towns under the jurisdiction of a county.
Rural Population refers to total population except urban population.
(3) The third definition (based on the statistical classification):
Urban Population/ Rural Population are classified according to the Regulation of Statistics Classification on Urban and Rural Population (Draft), formulated by the National Bureau of Statistics in 1999.
Data from 1952 to 1980 are the figures according to the first definition. Data from 1982 to 1999 are the figures according to the second definition. Urban/rural population in 2000 is the figure according to the third definition.
Birth Rate or (Crude Birth Rate) refers to the ratio of the number of births to the average population (or mid-period population) during a certain period of time (usually a year) which is often expressed in íŰ. Birth rate in the chapter refers to annual birth rate. The following formula is used:
Birth Rate = Number of Births/Average Number of Populationí┴1000íŰ
Number of births refers to live births i.e. the births when babies had showed any vital phenomena regardless of the length of pregnancy.
Annual Average Number of Population is the average of the number of population at the beginning of the year and that at the end of the year. Sometimes it is substituted for with the mid year population.
Death Rate (or Crude Death Rate) refers to the ratio of the number of deaths to the average population (or mid-period population) during a certain period of time (usually a year) which is often expressed in íŰ. Death rate in the chapter refers to annual death rate. The following formula is used:
Death Rate= Number of Deaths/Annual Average Number of Populationí┴1000íŰ
Natural Growth Rate of Population refers to the ratio of natural increase in population (number of births minus number of deaths) in a certain period of time (usually a year) to the average population (or mid-period population) of the same period which is often expressed in íŰ. The following formulas are applied:
Natural Growth of Population = (Number of Births-Number of Deaths)/Average Number of Populationí┴1000
Natural Growth Rate of Population = Birth Rate-Death Rate
Total Dependency Ratio refers to the ratio of number of dependents to the total population aged 15-64, the number of dependents being population aged 0-14 and population aged 65 and over. The total dependency ratio is calculated as follows:
Total Dependency Ratio = Number of Dependents/Population Aged 15-64í┴100%
The Aged Dependency Ratio refers to the ratio of the number of the aged population to the total population aged 15-64, the aged being population aged 65 and over. The aged dependency ratio is calculated as follows:
The Aged Dependency Ratio = Number of the Aged Population/ Population Aged 15-64í┴100%
The Juvenile and Children Dependency Ratio refers to the ratio of the number of the juvenile and children to the total population aged 15-64, the juvenile and children being population aged 0-14. The juvenile and children dependency ratio is calculated as follows:
The Juvenile and Children Dependency Ratio = Number of Juvenile and Children/ Population Aged 15-64í┴100%
