Natural Increase Rate Notebook
Explanation: Population growth
The de facto indigenous population of Kiribati was 55,439 in 1978 and 63,496 in 1985, with a growth rate of 2.1 per cent per annum, roughly equal to the growth rate in the period 1973-78. The birth rate (1981-85) was 37.5 per thousand and the death rate 13.9 per thousand: natural increase was thus 23.6 per thousand, an increase since the 1973-78 rate of 21 per thousand. Net migration was -2.4 per thousand and consisted mainly of movement between Kiribati and Nauru, and the movement of sailors and students.
