Age Structure refers to the number of people in different age groups in a country.

The population of a nation is divided into three categories:

  • Children (below 15 years)
  • Adults/working population (15-59 years)
  • Aged (above 60 years)

Death rate: It is the number of deaths per thousand persons in a year.

Birth rate: It is the number of births per thousand persons in a year.
