Problem: The population in New York during the starting period of 2000 was 589,545 according to U.S. government record. During the end of 2004, it was 669,990. Calculate the growth rate in percentage for the given year.
Solution:
Population at Beginning of Period = 589,545
Population at end of period = 669,990
Growth Rate = `(669990 - 589545)/(589545)` x 100
Growth Rate = 13.64%
