    There are several ways to attack this problem. Do they want the average rate of change for each interval (by day, by month, by year, etc?) or do they just want the start value plus the end value divided by time?

    they want the change from 1950 to 1960

    Then the average rate can be given by (change in population from 1950 to 1960)/(time interval)
