Re: the rate of increase?
Rate of increase is a mathematical term but mostly used to derive economic parameters such as rate of economic growth/inflation/population growth etc.

Population of city A is 150000 in Year 2005 and 180000 in Year 2008.
The rate of increase is (Total number of increase-180000 – 150000=30000) / (Total time-2008 – 2005=3)
= 30000 / 3 = 10000 people per year
If you need the rate of increase per month:
30000/ (3x12) = 30000 / 36 = 833.33 people per month
Here is a chart showing growth of population in Indian sub-continent calculated from per year to per minute
