    1. CHAPTER 2 POPULATION

    2. WHY IS POPULATION IMPORTANT? • Helps explain issues in human geography • It’s connected to everything!!!! (economics, health, politics….)

    3. CASE STUDY: INDIA • Read the case study on p. 46 and answer the following: • Give 2 reasons people in India are having many children 2. Where do most people in India live? 3. How does the age of India’s population negatively affect their growing wealth?

    4. ISSUE #1 Where is the World’s Population Distributed?

    5. Geographers look at two properties to understand global population distribution…. CONCENTRATION (which areas are clustered, which are sparse? ) DENSITY Different ways of measuring this: Arithmetic, Physiological, Agricultural 2/3of the world’s population lives in East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Western Europe

    6. World Population Cartogram Fig. 2-1: This cartogram displays countries by the size of their population rather than their land area.(Only countries with 50 million or more people are named.) World Growth worldmapper

    7. ARITHMETIC • Total number of people divided by total land area (population density) • Helps geographers compare populations of different parts of the world (helps understand “where”, people live, but not “why” there is uneven distribution)

    8. PHYSIOLOGICAL • Number of people supported by a unit area of arable land • Helps us understand the capacity of land to support the population • The higher the PD, the more pressure on the land to produce enough food

    9. AGRICULTURAL • Ratio of the number of farmers to the amount of arable land • Helps explain economic differences • MDCs have lower AD (why? Benefits?)

    10. LIST 3 PHYSICAL SIMILARITIES THE MOST POPULATED REGIONS SHARE…

    11. LIST 3 PHYSICAL SIMILARITIES THE MOST POPULATED REGIONS SHARE… • Live near ocean and/or river w/ easy access to a river 2. Live in low-lying areas 3. Fertile soil 4. Temperate climate 5. All in the NH, between 10*N and 55*N - exception?

    12. POWERPOINTS • Title: Region you have (ex. East Asia) • Population – fraction of world’s population there • Map – of that region • Concentration – highest/most important area of concentration • How do people make their living? • Title: Type of Land you have (ex. Dry Land) • Description – description of the land • Location – where is this type of land found? Lat/Long, regions, countries… • Map/Picture – of an example of that type (ex. Sahara) • Challenges – what problems does this type of land present

    13. Note Format for Regions Region: Population: Concentration: Occupation:

    14. Note Form for Land Areas • Land • Description • Location • Example • Challenges

    15. Answer the following: • Define Arithmetic, Physiological and Agricultural Density 2. Tell one thing each of those types of density helps geographers do/understand…. 3. Who tends to have a lower Agricultural Density, MDCs or LDCs? Why?

    16. ISSUE #2 Where has the World’s Population Increased?

    17. IMPORTANT MEASUREMENTS Crude Birth Rate Crude Death Rate Natural Increase Rate

    18. MEASURING NIR • just subtract CDR from CBR ex. CBR = 20 (20 per 1,000) CDR = 5 (5 per 1,000) - therefore the NIR = 15 or 1.5 % (remember, it’s out of 1,000, not 100) --- know the global trend over the past 60 years (p.53)

    19. TRUE/FALSE? • As NIR decreases, the overall population automatically decreases as well.

    20. TRUE/FALSE? • As NIR decreases, the overall population automatically decreases as well. FALSE – see graph on p.52

    21. WHERE IS NIR INCREASING? • Almost all growth in NIR is clustered in LDCs • It is negative in Europe * What are the implications of this?

    22. TYPE 2 1. List 3 similarities of the most populated regions of the world • What are the 4 most populated regions in the world? • List the 4 most sparsely populated land areas of the world

    23. KEY ISSUE #2 REVIEW

    24. Provide and example/explanation of how a country’s NIR could equal 1.6%.

    25. True/False – the NIR peaked in the 1960s and then decreased during the late 20th century.

    26. True/False – As the NIR decreased the overall population must also decrease.

    27. True/False – The nations with the highest NIR tend to also be the same as those with high CBRs and TFRs.

    28. If a nation has a very high life expectancy would you expect it to most likely have a high or low infant mortality rate?

    29. In general, the IMR reflects a nation’s ___________________

    30. True/False – the combined CDR for LDCs is actually lower than that of MDCs.

    31. Which of the following has the highest CBR? sub-Saharan Africa Europe East Asia

    32. Which of the following has the lowest CDR? sub-Saharan Africa Europe South America

    33. Which of the following has the highest NIR? sub-Saharan Africa North America South Asia

    34. Which of the following has the highest TFR? Middle East Europe North America

    35. Which of the following has the lowest IMR? North America Southeast Asia South America

    36. Provide an example/explanation of how a country’s NIR could equal 1.6%. (CBR is 100 and CDR is 84)

    37. True/False – the NIR peaked in the 1960s and then decreased during the late 20th century. (True)

    38. True/False – As the NIR decreased the overall population must also decrease. (False)

    39. True/False – The nations with the highest NIR tend to also be the same as those with high CBRs and TFRs. (True)

    40. If a nation has a very high life expectancy would you expect it to most likely have a high or low infant mortality rate? (low)

    41. In general, the IMR reflects a nation’s ___________________ (health care system)

    42. True/False – the combined CDR for LDCs is actually lower than that of MDCs. (True)

    43. Which of the following has the highest CBR? sub-Saharan Africa Europe East Asia (sub-Saharan Africa)

    44. Which of the following has the lowest CDR? sub-Saharan Africa Europe South America (South America)

    45. Which of the following has the highest NIR? sub-Saharan Africa North America South Asia (sub-Saharan Africa)

    46. Which of the following has the highest TFR? Middle East Europe North America (Middle East)

    47. Which of the following has the lowest IMR? North America Southeast Asia South America (North America)

    48. ISSUE #3 Why is Population Increasing at Different Rates in Different Countries?
