DEFINITIONS OF THE INDICATORS
Total population: Estimated size of national populations at mid-year.
Average annual rate of population change: Average exponential rate of growth of the population over a given period, based on a medium variant projection.
Population aged 10-24, percent: Proportion of the population between age 10 and age 24.
Population aged 0-14, percent: Proportion of the population between age 0 and age 14.
Population aged 15-64, percent: Proportion of the population between age 15 and age 64.
Population aged 65 and older, percent: Proportion of the population aged 65 and older.
Dependency ratio: Ratio of dependents (people younger than 15 or older than 64) to the working-age population (those ages 15-64). Data are shown as the proportion of dependents per 100 working-age population.
Maternal mortality ratio: Number of deaths of women from pregnancy-related causes per 100,000 live births during the same time period.
Births attended by skilled health personnel: Percentage of births attended by skilled heath personnel (doctor, nurse or midwife).
Adolescent birth rate: Number of births per 1,000 adolescent girls aged 15-19.
Contraceptive prevalence rate: Percentage of married or in-union women aged 15 to 49 who are currently using any method of contraception.
Contraceptive prevalence rate, modern method: Percentage of married or in-union women aged 15 to 49 who are currently using any modern method of contraception.
Unmet need for family planning: Percentage of married or in-union women aged 15 to 49 who want to stop or delay childbearing but are not using a method of contraception.
Proportion of demand satisfied: Percentage of total demand for family planning among married or in-union women aged 15 to 49 that is satisfied.
Adjusted primary school net enrolment ratio: Percentage of children of the official primary age group who are enrolled in primary or secondary education.
Gender parity index, primary education: Ratio of female to male values of adjusted primary school net enrolment ratio.
Secondary school net enrolment ratio: Percentage of children of the official secondary age group who are enrolled in secondary education.
Gender parity index, secondary education: Ratio of female to male values of secondary school net enrolment ratio.
Life expectancy at birth: Number of years newborn children would live if subject to the mortality risks prevailing for the cross section of population at the time of their birth.
Total fertility rate: Number of children who would be born per woman if she lived to the end of her childbearing years and bore children at each age in accordance with prevailing age-specific fertility rates.
