# Determine the size of the country’s population at the end of the year according to the following data: the population at the beginning

**Determine the size of the country’s population at the end of the year according to the following data: the population at the beginning of the year is 4073 thousand people, the birth rate is 11.5 ‰, the death rate is 54 thousand people, 126 thousand people arrived, 94 thousand people left.**

1) Determine the number of births by making a proportion:

4073 thousand people – 1000 ‰

X thousand people – 11.5 ‰,

X = 46839.5 thousand people (let’s round up the data to 47 thousand people)

2) Using the data obtained, we calculate the natural growth:

EP = P – C = 47 – 54 = -7 thousand people (the population is shrinking)

3) Let’s calculate the migration gain: MP = I – E

126 thousand people – 94 thousand people = 32 thousand people

4) CHN2 = CHN1 + EP + MP

4073000+ (-7000) +32000 = 4098 thousand people

Answer: The population of the country at the end of the year was 4098 thousand people.
