  • 1. Demography and Health Dr.Rajkumar Patil Asstt. Prof., Community Medicine AVMCH, Pondicherry
  • 2. Demos + graphein Demography is scientific study of human population
  • 3. Community Medicine and Demography
    • Community medicine is vitally concerned with population as the health of the people depends upon:
    • the number of people
    • the space they occupy
    • the skill that they have acquired
  • 4. Major sources of demographic data
    • Census
    • Registration of vital events
    • NFHS
  • 5.
    • Three phenomena in Demography
    • Changes in population size
    • Composition of population
    • Population distribution in space
    • Five demographic processes
    • Fertility
    • Mortality
    • Marriage
    • Migration
    • Social mobility
  • 6.
    • There are four ways in which the number of people
    • in an area can change during two time periods
    • Population Growth
    • Natural Increase (Births-Deaths)
    • +
    • Net Migration (Immigration-emigration)
    Population Dynamics
  • 7. Demographic cycle
  • 8. Demographic cycle Phase/ Stage BR DR Natural Increase Examples High Stationary 0-very slow India was in this stage till 1920 Early Expanding + Slow South Asia & Africa Late Expanding Rapid India, China, Singapore Low Stationary Slow UK, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium Declining Declining Germany & Hungary

    • Replacement Level Fertility
    • When a couple has two births during their reproductive
    • life, just enough to replace themselves.
    • Replacement level is considered when there are, on the
    • average, 2.1 births per woman (TFR), to compensate for
    • child deaths
  • 58.
    • Fertility Indicators
    • a. Original rates
    • 1.Crude Birth rate (CBR)
    • CBR=Live Births x 1000/mid year population
    • 2.General fertility rate (GFR)
    • GFR = Live Births x 1000/mid year female pop. (15-49yr)
    • General marital fertility rate (GMFR)
    • GMFR= Live Births x 1000
    • mid year married female pop.(15-49yr)
  • 59.
    • 4. Age specific fertility rates (ASFR)
        • Indicator of Fertility pattern & family planning
    • Live births in specific age group x 1000
    • Midyear population of women in that age group
    • 5. Age specific marital fertility rate (ASMFR)
    • Live births in specific age group x 1000
    • Midyear population of married women in that age group
  • 60. b. Derived rates 6. Total fertility rate (TFR) Average number of live births a woman is expected to undergo during her reproductive life. TFR = 5 x ƩASFR 1000 7. Total marital fertility rate (TMFR) TFR = 5 x ƩASMFR 1000
  • 61.
    • 8. Gross reproduction rate (GRR)
    • Average number of girls born to a woman during her reproductive life, if she experiences the current fertility pattern throughout the reproductive life (15-49) assuming no mortality
    • GRR = 5 x ƩASFR for female Live Births
    • 1000
    • GRR = TFR x newborn sex ratio
  • 62.
    • 9. Net reproduction rate (NRR)
    • Average number of girls born (and survived) to a woman during her reproductive life, if she experiences the current fertility pattern throughout the reproductive life (15-49) and assuming current mortality pattern
    • NRR = Number of girls born and survived
    • Number of the women survived
    • after the end of reproductive life
  • 63. c. Related rates and ratios 10. Child-woman ratio Number of children < 4 yrs of age per 1000 women of child bearing age. 11. Pregnancy rate Ratio of no. of pregnancy in a year to married women in the ages (15 – 49)
  • 64. 12. Abortion rate No. of abortions per 1000 women of child bearing age group. 13. Abortion ratio No. of abortions performed/ no. of live births 14. Marriage rate Crude MR = Number of marriages in a yr x 1000 Mid Year Population General MR = Number of marriages in a yr x 1000 Number of unmarried persons in 15–49 age gp.
