Part 1 of the assignment will be to create a demographic table and profile for each country. The first table (“Table 1”) should include the following for each country for the years 2007 and 2012: the Total Population of the country, the Rate of Natural Increase (RNI), the Fertility Rate, the Infant Mortality Rate, and the GNI PPP per capita. The above information should come from the Population Reference Bureau (PRB) World Population Data Sheet (download a free PDF of the 2007 (data sheet archives) and the 2012 population data sheet at www.prb.org).
