Sorry I have to decline, but it's not near infrared, that was my first thought too, I should have mentioned that in the question, I forgot and caused confusion.

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.

Demographer’s Notebook Population Strategies


The U.S. rate of natural population increase, excluding immigration, is now 0.6%-1.6 million people per year. Among industrialized nations, only New Zealand (0.8%) and Australia (0.7%) are higher. Europe, Russia and several other countries of the former Soviet Union have a slightly negative natural growth rate. The world average, however, is 1.4%. (2)

Thanks a lot but, given the context, I have my grave doubts.
