Suppose that Belize had the following demographic figures in 2005:

Population_________________ 300, 000

Number of LiveBirths_______________________9, 000

Number of Infant Deaths____________________ 200

Total number of Deaths_____________________1400

Number of Still Births_____________________100

Total male population_________________160, 000

Number of Child-bearing female(ages 15 –45)__ 65, 000

Showing all formulae and necessary workings

(a) Calculate the Infant Mortality Rate.

(b) Calculate the Crude Birth Rate.

(c) Calculate the Crude Death Rate.

(d) Calculate the Rate of Natural Increase

(a) Infant Mortality Rate = (Number of Infant Deaths/Number of LiveBirths)*1000 = (200/9000)*1000 = 22.22 deaths per 1000 children

(b) Crude Birth Rate = (Number of LiveBirths/Total population)*1000 = (9000/300,000)*1000 = 30 births for every 1000 people

(c) Crude death rate = (Total number of Deaths/Total population)*1000 = (1400/300,000)*1000 = 4.67 deaths for every 1000 people

(d) Rate of Natural Increase = [(Birth rate - death rate)/1000]*100 = (30 - 4.67)/10= 25.33/10 = 2.53%
