Compare and contrast the terms natural increase and fertility rate.

  • geography -

    Natural increase in population is based on life expectancy plus the number of births per woman.

    The fertility rate is the number of children produced by each woman.

    In other words, a society with a low life expectancy may still increase its population if the average woman has many children.
