Between 1950 and 2000 the percent of the population over the age of 60 rose from 4.4 in 1950 to a high of 5.8 in 1980 and then dropped to 4.5 in 2000 the percentage is expected to continue to decrease until 2020 and then increase. The percent of population over 65 follows the same trend. Meanwhile to percentage of the population aged 5-14 has experienced an overall increasing trend between 1950 and 2000 there were dips between 1955 and 1980 and 1985 and 1990. The percentage of the population between5-14 is expected to then decrease between 2000 and 2050 from 28.6 in 2005 to 21.6 in 2050. The percentage of the population aged 0-4 will experience a similar pattern as the percentage of population between 5-14 only dips and decrease start 5 years earlier (since after 5 years the population then moves in to the next age category). Fertility increase from 1950 to 1980 and hen from 1980 to 2000 decreases and is expected to continue that decrease from 2000 to 2050. The decrease from 1980 to 2050 where fertility declines from 7.75 children per women to 2.93 children per women is almost linear. The crude death has been decreasing ever since 1950 in an almost linear fashion. Burkina Faso, as expected for a country going through a demographic transition, had its mortality decline precede its decline in fertility. This has resulted in the population growth rate increasing from 1.31 in the period of 150-1955 to 3.17% in the period of 2000-2005. The population percent growth rate is then expected to decline on a linear fashion to reach 1.75% which is still above the population growth rate in 1950.1....
