The objective of this lesson is to learn different different data visualization techniques using country-level geo-demographic data.
Using the variable values shown in the data table at the bottom of the map, complete the color mapping table so that each color corresponds to a range of values
Paint each country by matching its variable value with a color in the color mapping table. Recommended practice is to use "cool" colors such as blue for low variable values. "Hot" colors such as orange and red should be used for high values.
Total fertility rate(children born/woman)
Total fertility rate(children born/woman) Definition
This entry gives a figure for the average number of children that would be born per woman if all women lived to the end of their childbearing years and bore children according to a given fertility rate at each age. The total fertility rate is a more direct measure of the level of fertility than the crude birth rate, since it refers to births per woman. This indicator shows the potential for population growth in the country. High rates will also place some limits on the labor force participation rates for women. Large numbers of children born to women indicate large family sizes that might limit the ability of the families to feed and educate their children.
