Intro to Population Present World Population: 6.5 – 7.2 Billion People in the world – China: ~ 1.3 – 1.4 Billion people – India: ~ 1 – 1.5 Billion People Future of the World Population: – Going to INCREASE! – Why? People are making babies;) – Birth rate is more than the death rate Possible Issues / Problems? Over population – Live on a different planet..why? Age? Access to Resources?
World Population Growth Why has population GROWN so much in the past years?? Reasons for large explosion of Human Population: – Industrial Revolution (Growth of Technology = decline of death rate) – Higher chance to survive BECAUSE living conditions/quality has improved/become better – No restrictions on # of kids (for most places/long time) – Policies about family planning…countries encouraged people to make babies! – Technology to provide FOOD/Products (need more people..and can provide for more people) – Medicine (cure illness/sickness/disease) – Basically…we have made it harder to die than in the past~!
Demography graphy – The study of……something! Demography: The study of….. Human Population – The study of Mathematics / Social Studies / Physics – What can we study ABOUT the Human Population? In the Human Population, we can focus/study: – Control of Population – Total # of people (in a country/city/school/world) – Birth rate / Death rate (where are people dying/born, how old, etc) – Gender (How many males:females) – Nationalities/Ethnicities of people – Patterns of population growth (timeline) – Age of people!! – Income – Education
Why Study Demographics of a population? Who cares about this stuff? Why?! – Why is this useful? Governments/Countries/World Organizations care because…helps to predict (and PLAN) for the future!! – Who: Parents? Governments…World Organizations (United Nations..?) Political Parties – Why?: Political Views of people? Male/Female could influence the culture
The process of collecting demographic data is called….Census! Census: The process of collecting human population information! – Why…clearly see what we HAVE…and What we WILL have… Problems with collecting a Census?... – Hard to count..why?: Migration! People move! Especially in areas without a clear address North Pole…Santa Claus lives.. Remote…in the countryside No mans land…has no address Afghanistan/Africa/Syria/Natives who live in the jungle Developed/Developing?...Developing countries
Types of Migration Migration: The movement of an animal Side Note: Study Strategy…Make the information make sense to you… Two Types: 1)Immigration (I = IN): People go IN TO a country **How does Immigrants influence a country? What do they BRING WITH THEM?? 1)Emigration (E = EXIT): People LEAVE a country! ** How do Emigrants influence a country? What do they leave with?? Leave Behind?
Influence of Immigrants/Emigrants to a Country Immigrant: Bring habits/culture/traditions/values/beliefs (+/-) Man power/Labor force (+) Products/Likes Competition (for business/jobs) Most immigrants are young (energy, want to have babies, educated, talented, money…) Human Needs (Food, Water, Place to live…) (-)
Emmigrant: - Brain Drain – Take away their talent/brain from their hometown -Technology/education/knowledge -Human Needs (food, water, shelter) (+)
