Factors affecting population density in China and the UK
LO: To explain and compare the human and physical factors that have an impact of the 2 countries
Find out the figures using the atlas.
1. Describe the population density of China (4)
2. Describe the population density of the UK (4)
Using human and physical information from the atlas and textbooks annotate the map of China and the map of the UK to explain factors that would encourage a sparse or dense population
Think of a key to use to help make you annotations clearer:
sparse, dense, human, physical?
Low Population density of less than 10 per sq km in Gobi Desert.
Remote so less trade and poor communications
High population density of more than 1000 people per sq km
Do not have extreme climates, flat land (good for building and farming), better rainfall
Major ports- good trade and goods can easily be transported
In 1970s government introduced a strategy for coastal development drew in workers, especially around Shanghai
High population density along Yangzte River
Good trade (especially since opening of 3 Gorges Dam between Chongching and Shanghai
