Patterns of Population Growth

  • Patterns of Population Growth

    • The scientific study of human populations is called demography.

    • Demography examines the characteristics of human populations and attempts to explain how those populations will change over time.

    • Check out the Demographic Data . .

Patterns of Population Growth

  • In stage 1, there are high death rates and high birthrates.

  • In stage 2, the death rate drops, while the birthrate remains high. The population increases rapidly.

  • In stage 3, the birthrate decreases, causing population growth to slow.

  • Age Structure Diagrams (Power Pyramids)

    • Demographers can predict future growth using models called age-structure diagrams.

    • Age-structure diagrams show the population of a country broken down by gender and age group.

Future Population Growth

  • Future Population Growth

    • To predict human population growth, demographers must consider the age structure of each country, as well as the prevalence of life-threatening diseases, technology, sanitation, etc.

    • World Clock (gen. estimate)

    • Population Outlook

    • What is our carrying capacity?

    • Most estimates put it between 10-20billion
