Graduate level statistics course term paper examining variations in Infant Mortality Rates


what benefits have come from population analysis? Examples for British Columbia include publication of methods used by BC Stats to estimate population; consideration of fluctuating enrolment regarding school closures; high school recommended for permanent closure kept open.

After finding out that the method and data provided were not the method and data used to create population estimates and forecasts, the Population Projection Project was developed to provide verifiable reproducible, not made up to support a government policy, well defined population projection scenarios.
