Suppose you are studying a population with the following characteristics: Birth rate = 14 per 1,000/year Death rate = 6 per 1,000/year Immigration rate = 5 per 1,000/year Emigration rate = 1 per 1,000/year What is the growth rate for this population?

    12 per 1,000 / year would be population growth

    Step-by-step explanation:

    To know the population growth it is important to know what it contributes to its growth and that it decreases it.

    Birth rate = => increases growth

    Death rate = => decreases growth

    Immigration rate = => increases growth

    Emigration rate = => decreases growth

    Now it only remains to add those that increase growth and subtract those that decrease, like this:

    14 per 1,000 / year - 6 per 1,000 / year + 5 per 1,000 / year - 1 per 1,000 / year = 12 per 1,000 / year

    12 per 1,000 / year would be population growth
