Demography Shmography

According to the CIA, the Vatican has a population of 824 people and a growth rate of 0.003% per year.

That means that, in the last year, the Vatican's population increased by 0.025 people.

What the !@#$%^???

.025 people last year... Doesn't it just mean that every 40 years it increases by 1?

I was going to suggest something like that, but it didn't seem too likely, of course.
