The Four Phases of Demographic Transition Are Evident Today Around the World.
In the parish of Mouy, north of Paris, there were 47 burials recorded in 1693; in 1694, the number jumped to an appalling 262. This is a
dramatic example of life during Phase 1 of the demographic transition (albeit a somewhat modern one compared to the 50,000 years of human
existence that preceded Phase 1). A rise in the price of grains meant more people could not afford food, a situation that nearly always led to
excessive mortality, as happened in Mouy. In Phase 2 of the transition—roughly the beginning of the Industrial Revolution—death rates began
to fall more regularly, although the preference for larger families may have remained for a time. Next, increasing urbanization lessened the need
for children even as early public health measures improved life spans. Now the transition was really underway. By the 20th century, the development of modern medicine and the desire to limit family size combined to cause the low death rates and very low birth rates we see today.
That, at least, is what happened over the centuries in Europe and North America. Most developing countries arrived in the 20th century still in
the first phase of the transition. In the aftermath of World War II, however, the benefits of public health and modern medicine became available
to them in a comparatively short period of time. Mortality fell with unusual rapidity but the desire for large families remained. Then, with mounting
concern over record rates of population growth, birth rates did begin to fall in many countries. Today, we can find examples around the world of
all four stages of the transition.

NOTES: Natural increase or decrease is the difference between the number of births and deaths. The birth rate is the number
of live births per 1,000 population in a given year. The death rate is the number of deaths per 1,000 population in a given year.

The World Is in the Midst of Its Most Rapid Population Growth in History.
Today, the world is adding the largest numbers to its population than in any time in history. Despite the fact that the annual population growth
rate has declined to 1.2 percent per year, world population grows by about 83 million annually. If the same growth rate had applied in 1950,
only 30 million people annually would have been added to the world total. While declines in birth rates have been virtually universal across
countries, the pattern of decline has been very variable. In some countries, birth rates have fallen below two children; birth rates in other countries have decreased to medium levels or have barely begun to decrease. Population projections assume that birth rates in developing countries will decline—smoothly—to two children or fewer (this PRB data sheet incorporates that assumption). Both the sixth billion and seventh
billion were reached in the
same number of years:

Population Change in U.S. Counties Varies Widely Within States.
Total population in the United States increased by almost 10 percent between 2000 and 2010, but growth patterns varied widely across
counties. About one-fourth of counties grew faster than the national average, with one-tenth increasing by 20 percent or more. Population
continued to increase fastest in states in the South and the West, but even within high-growth states like Texas, some counties still lost
population over this decade. Although Michigan was the only state whose population declined between 2000 and 2010, more than half
of the counties in Michigan still grew over this period. Areas with the fastest growth included the suburbs of metropolitan areas such
as Orlando, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Washington, D.C., and the Research Triangle area of North Carolina. As in
previous decades, many rural areas lost population, including much of the Great Plains and northern and central Appalachia. Nearly half of
the 1,104 counties that lost population during the decade were isolated from metropolitan areas. Parts of Louisiana that were hard hit by
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita ranked among the counties with the fastest rate of population decline between 2000 and 2010.

Growth in the Youth Population in the Middle East Has Slowed and Even Is Declining
in Some Countries.
Since the mid-1960s, the youth population (ages 15 to 24) in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) has grown rapidly. But because
of the steady decline in fertility in many countries in recent years, the size of the youth population will grow at a much slower pace in the
coming decades. For example, the youth population in Yemen nearly doubled between 1995 and 2010, but is projected to increase by only
38 percent between 2010
96
and 2025. MENA countries,

Poverty Remains a Significant Problem Worldwide.
Poverty has emerged as a serious global issue, particularly because the most rapid population growth is occurring in the world’s poorest
countries and, within many countries, in the poorest states and provinces. In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, eight in 10 residents
live on less than US$2 per day. In India, 76 percent of the population lives below that level—more than 900 million people. Relatively high
population growth rates make it more difficult to lift large numbers of people out of poverty.

2011 WORLD POPULATION DATA SHEET 13
Acknowledgments, Notes, Sources, and Definitions
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
SOURCES
The authors gratefully acknowledge the
valuable assistance of PRB staff members
Kristen Devlin, Donna Clifton, Lisa Aronson,
Dorothy Wei, and Kelvin Pollard; staff of the
International Programs Center of the U.S.
Census Bureau; the United Nations (UN)
Population Division; the Institut national
d’etudes démographiques (INED), Paris;
and the World Bank in the preparation of
this year’s World Population Data Sheet.
This publication is funded by the William
and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the David
and Lucile Packard Foundation, the U.S.
Agency for International Development (IDEA
Project, No. AID-0AA-A-10-00009), and
supporters. The contents are the responsibility of the Population Reference Bureau
and do not necessarily reflect the views of
USAID or the United States government.
The rates and figures are primarily compiled
from the following sources: official country
statistical yearbooks, bulletins, and websites;
United Nations Demographic Yearbook, 2008
of the UN Statistics Division; World Population
Prospects: The 2010 Revision of the UN
Population Division; and the International
Data Base of the International Programs
Center, U.S. Census Bureau. Other sources
include recent demographic surveys such
as the Demographic and Health Surveys,
Reproductive Health Surveys, special studies,
and direct communication with demographers
and statistical bureaus in the United States
and abroad. Specific data sources may be
obtained by contacting the authors of the
2011 World Population Data Sheet. For
countries with complete registration of births
and deaths, rates are those most recently
reported. For more developed countries,
nearly all vital rates refer to 2010 or 2009.
NOTES
The Data Sheet lists all geopolitical entities
with populations of 150,000 or more and
all members of the UN. These include
sovereign states, dependencies, overseas
departments, and some territories whose
status or boundaries may be undetermined
or in dispute. More developed regions,
following the UN classification, comprise
all of Europe and North America, plus
Australia, Japan, and New Zealand. All
other regions and countries are classified
as less developed. The least developed
countries consist of 49 countries with
especially low incomes, high economic
vulnerability, and poor human development
indicators. The criteria and list of countries,
as defined by the United Nations, can be
found at www.unohrlls.org/en/ldc/.
Sub-Saharan Africa: All countries of
Africa except the northern African countries
of Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia,
and Western Sahara.
World and Regional Totals:
Regional population totals are independently
rounded and include small countries or
areas not shown. Regional and world rates
and percentages are weighted averages
of countries for which data are available;
regional averages are shown when data or
estimates are available for at least threequarters of the region’s population.
World Population Data Sheets from different
years should not be used as a time series.
Fluctuations in values from year to year
often reflect revisions based on new data or
estimates rather than actual changes in levels.
Additional information on likely trends and
consistent time series can be obtained from
PRB, and are also available from UN and U.S.
Census Bureau publications and websites.

DEFINITIONS
Mid-2011 Population
Estimates are based on a recent census,
official national data, or PRB, UN, and U.S.
Census Bureau projections. The effects
of refugee movements, large numbers of
foreign workers, and population shifts due to
contemporary political events are taken into
account to the extent possible.
Birth and Death Rate
The annual number of births and deaths
per 1,000 total population. These rates are
often referred to as “crude rates” since they
do not take a population’s age structure into
account. Thus, crude death rates in more
developed countries, with a relatively large
proportion of high-mortality older population,
are often higher than those in less developed
countries with lower life expectancy.
Rate of Natural Increase (RNI)
The birth rate minus the death rate, implying the
annual rate of population growth without regard
for migration. Expressed as a percentage.
Net Migration
The estimated rate of net immigration
(immigration minus emigration) per 1,000
population for a recent year based upon
the official national rate or derived as a
residual from estimated birth, death, and
population growth rates. Migration rates can
vary substantially from year to year for any
particular country as can the definition of
an immigrant.
Projected Population 2025 and 2050
Projected populations based upon reasonable assumptions on the future course of
fertility, mortality, and migration. Projections
are based upon official country projections,
series issued by the UN or the U.S. Census
Bureau, or PRB projections.
Infant Mortality Rate
The annual number of deaths of infants under
age 1 per 1,000 live births. Rates shown with
decimals indicate national statistics reported
as completely registered, while those without
are estimates from the sources cited above.
Rates shown in italics are based upon fewer
than 50 annual infant deaths and, as a result,
are subject to considerable yearly variability.
Total Fertility Rate (TFR)
The average number of children a woman
would have assuming that current
age-specific birth rates remain constant
throughout her childbearing years (usually
considered to be ages 15 to 49).
Population Under Age 15/Age 65+
The percentage of the total population in
these ages, which are often considered the
“dependent ages.”
Life Expectancy at Birth
The average number of years a newborn
infant can expect to live under current
mortality levels.
Percent Urban
Percentage of the total population living
in areas termed “urban” by that country.
Countries define urban in many different
ways, from population centers of 100 or
more dwellings to only the population living
in national and provincial capitals.
Prevalence of HIV/AIDS
The estimated percentage of adults, ages
15-49, living with HIV/AIDS. Figures are from
UNAIDS’ 2010 Report on the Global AIDS
Epidemic. Some regional averages were
calculated by PRB.
Contraceptive Use
The percentage of currently married or “inunion” women of reproductive age who are
currently using any form of contraception.
“Modern” methods include clinic and supply
methods such as the pill, IUD, condom,
and sterilization. Data are from the most
recently available national-level surveys,
such as Demographic and Health Surveys,
Reproductive Health Surveys, Multiple
Indicator Cluster Surveys, regional survey
programs, national surveys, and the UN
Population Division World Contraceptive Use
2011. For more developed countries, data
refer to some point in the 1990s and early
2000s. Data for less developed countries
are primarily from a point in the mid-2000s.
Data prior to 2005 are shown in italics.
GNI PPP per Capita, 2009 (US$)
GNI PPP per capita is gross national income
in purchasing power parity (PPP) divided by
mid-year population. GNI PPP refers to gross
national income converted to “international”
dollars using a purchasing power parity conversion factor. International dollars indicate
the amount of goods and services one could
buy in the United States with a given amount
of money. Data are from the World Bank.
Figures in italics are for 2007 or 2008.
Percent of Population Below $US2
per Day
Population below $US2 purchasing power
parity (PPP) a day is the percentage of the
population living on less than $2 a day at
2005 international prices. Data prior to
2000 are in italics. Data are from the World
Bank (http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/
SI.POV.2DAY).
Percent of Population With Access
to Improved Water Supply
Estimates are from the World Health
Organization and UNICEF Joint Monitoring
Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation
(www.wssinfo.org/data-estimates/table/). An
improved drinking-water source is defined
as one that, by nature of its construction or
through active intervention, is protected from
outside contamination.

2011 WORLD POPULATION DATA SHEET 14
The POPULATION REFERENCE BUREAU informs people around the
world about population, health, and the environment, and empowers them to
use that information to advance the well-being of current and future generations.
INFORM
EMPOWER
ADVANCE
PRB informs people around the world about
issues related to population, health, and
the environment. To do this, we transform
technical data and research into accurate,
easy-to-understand information.
PRB empowers people—researchers, journalists, policymakers, and educators—to use
information about population, health, and the
environment to encourage action. Frequently,
people have information but lack the tools
needed to communicate effectively to decisionmakers. PRB builds coalitions and
conducts trainings to share techniques
to inform policy.
PRB works to advance the well-being of current and future generations. Toward that end,
we analyze data and research, disseminate
information, and empower people to use that
information to inform policymaking. While the
numbers of publications created or workshops
conducted are one way to measure PRB’s
work, the creation of evidence-based policies,
increased demand for health services, and
active coalitions are better gauges of progress
toward positive social change.
INNOVATIVE TOOLS. PRB’s updated and
expanded DataFinder is a searchable database of population, health, and environment
variables for all countries of the world. A separate U.S. database includes social, economic,
and demographic variables for each state and
the District of Columbia.
INFLUENTIAL REPORTS. The World’s
Women and Girls 2011 Data Sheet has the
latest data on a wide variety of indicators on
the socioeconomic status of women and girls
in more than 180 countries, with a focus on
demography, reproductive health, education,
work, and public life.
UNBIASED POLICY ANALYSIS. For more
than 20 years, PRB has hosted a monthly
seminar series focused on the policy implications of population issues including the U.S.
Census, aging, and child well-being.
ONLINE RESOURCES. PRB’s website
offers full text of all PRB publications,
including our respected Population Bulletins,
and data and analysis on world issues
ranging from gender to family planning
to population basics.
JOURNALIST NETWORKS. PRB builds
the capacity of journalists from developing
countries through seminars and study tours.
Each year, we organize several study tours for
journalists throughout Africa to visit projects
and the people they affect.
POLICY COMMUNICATIONS TRAINING.
In the past decade, PRB has trained more than
800 professionals in Asia, Africa, and Latin
America. For example, in 2010 we sponsored
two workshops with Kenya’s National Coordinating Agency for Population and Development,
training local and regional policymakers, program managers, and advocates.
DATA WORKSHOPS. PRB’s data workshops
and online training assist the Annie E. Casey
Foundation’s KIDS COUNT network in using
data about the status of children in the United
States. Participants take away the knowledge
needed to access data about their particular
state and communicate with policymakers.
EVIDENCE-BASED POLICIES. PRB
provides analysis for the KIDS COUNT Data
Book, an annual report card on the well-being
of children and families in the United States.
The Data Book has helped promote the passage of several U.S. policies, including the
State Children’s Health Insurance Program.
DEMAND FOR HEALTH SERVICES. Articles written as part of a media training effort in
child marriage in Senegal led to the Vice President of the National Assembly’s call for a study
to understand and address this common and
harmful practice.
ACTIVE COALITIONS. PRB works with
the East Africa Population, Health, and
Environment Network to increase information
sharing across the region. The AFRICAPHE
online discussion group improves access to
information and capacity-building and
funding opportunities.
