Here’s a neat website that allows you to view the birth and death rate of any country in real time. Watch the birth and death rates rise and fall. The deaths come with a brief description like “Adult, 30 – 49 years old (Male)” and it also tells you if the birth was a boy or girl. The most active countries are China and India, so check them out if you want to see the numbers run.
The population numbers are based on information from the U.S. Census Bureau. The numbers presented are not real figures, but merely estimates. The notes (on the people’s age and gender) are also simulated, but are properly dispersed according to the percentages found in census data.
It’s pretty cool site, so check it out.
