Pick a country of your choice that is experiencing population growth.

Write a paragraph about how you might use this information in a role as a politician, government administrator or business owner/operator.

Example: The population of India in 2005 was 1,080,264,388. The growth rate is 1.4%. To solve this problem, the percent must first be converted to its decimal equivalent.

In 2006, the approximate population is 1,095,388,089.
In 2007, approximate population is 1,110,723,523.
In 2008, approximate population is 1,126,273,652.
