ECONOMIC STATISTICS VOCABULARY ET: Read the following statistic and answer the following questions: About 90% of the world’s population lives in the Northern Hemisphere. 1. What does this statistic tell us? 2. What does this statistic not tell us? 3. What other information do we need to better understand this statistic? LT: I can define vocabulary words related to economic development and represent my knowledge on a poster.
Labels Geographers label the world in many ways. Two of the main labels geographers use are: More Developed Countries (MDCs) Less Developed Countries (LDCs)
How to Decide What Label? To help decide whether a country is more developed or less developed, geographers look at statistics to help them categorize the world. There are 3 types of indicators (statistics) geographers use: Economic indicators Health indicators Social indicators
Economic Indicators Today, we will begin discussing economic indicators. We will look into what they are and how geographers can use them to label the world. The main economic indicators (statistics) geographers consider are GDP & market sectors.
Today’s mission: 1. Write definitions in your notebook. 2. Sort the pictures at your table into categories to go with each vocabulary word. 3. With your group, make a poster that includes all five words and illustrations to explain the words.
Definitions GDP (gross domestic product) = the total amount of money a country makes in a year Per Capita = per person Agriculture = creating raw materials (plants, cotton, rubber, wood) Industry = processing the materials to make goods (shirts, shoes, cars…) Services = selling and distribution of goods (clothing stores, restaurants, hospitals)
