I am looking for a comprehensive explanation of the death and population tables.

The first columns are self explanatory. Its the 100% rate and the others that I cant seem to grip fully.

It would be great if you could see the history of the percentage of population for each age group too, so it would be clearer to see if your retired are dying and your young growing. The average age and expected life span alter so slowly it's impossible to see which way you're going from those graphs.

So if anyone has figured these tables out, please help me with an explanation.

Well, actually you have a graph of a 2 years? period in the table ′Population Data by Age Groups (that colored thing next to age groups).
But I believe that with expected numbers of births and deaths over one year is what you need and you can think from there if the situation is good.

Crafty, do you transfer massive amounts of people between nations? Or else it shouldn't matter because population grows so slowly.

Yep yep, I have these things figured, but when you start losing population one cure can be extra hospitals. But this is not always the fix, population bubbles happen when lots of people get to retirement/death age at more or less the same time. So with a decling population even the younger age groups (that you want) can show as declining, alongside the old age groups, so you need to look at the percentage of population to see if your % of young is growing and old decreasing. Hence my call for a history graph of that number, the percentage, I cant be writing the numbers down for 25 countries every month.

And what does the 100% death rate mean in relation to the other figures? and the 100% rate, same question for the birth rate? This is the original question I would appreciate answers to, the graph thing is a petition the GM thing.

And this before I have even started on the figures in the special schools and back to work schools!

Probably a longer log can be useful and an explanation of what is happening with the population. Like some tips. But from what I see now this detailed things over the population are not in the game, there are a few things that influence the numbers of population.

I would bet Laguna would know this. Maybe even Yankee or one of the real old time experts.
