3 Population Pyramids –Charts that show the percentages of each age group in the total population, divided by gender.For poorer countries, the chart is shaped like a pyramid. Infant mortality rates are high, life expectancy is shorter.
4 Population Pyramids-display a country’s population in a bar graph form. Each 5 year group with the youngest 0-4 years old at the base of the pyramid are called cohorts.Males are shown on the left side and females are shown on the right.A wide-based pyramid indicates a country in Stage 2 of the Demographic transition.
5 Population PyramidsCharts that show the percentages of each age group in the total population, divided by gender.For wealthier countries, the chart is shaped like a lopsided vase. Population is aging, TFRs are declining.
7 Four Patterns of Population Structure Kenya will face many employment problems when the bottom cohort is old enough to work.Austria’s negative growth means a future with fewer workers to support social services.Russia’s 1992 pyramid shows the sharp decline in births during WW II as the “pinching” of cohort. Also note the large deficits of men above 65 due to the heavy male mortality during the World WarsFour Patterns of Population StructureEach nation faces different problems due to a large base with many young or negative growth.
15 1995 Population Pyramids reflect the economic prosperity of Western Europe and the less developed countries of Sub-Saharan Africa. In the mid-1990s almost 50% of Africa’s population was under 15 years of age.By contrast the number of people 65 and older in Western Europe is 5 times that of sub-Saharan Africa.
16 Age Structure of a Population The populations of many countries are aging.- eg. Europe- eg. JapanBordeaux, France

21 Population PoliciesUnder Mao, China refused to cooperate in pop. Control-viewed it as a “capitalist plot”Soviets in 1970s promoted population growth due to the loss of 26 million in WWII, Stalin exterminated another 30 million farmers, political opponents, etc.-gave awards for women with 10 or more kids.US Reagan, a conservative, refused to support family planningIf the population of China walked past you, 8 abreast, the line would never end because of the rate of reproduction.
22 Population PoliciesExpansive Policies or Pro-Natalist policies encourage large families e.g. Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany, Soviet Union & Ceausescu’s Romania & Mao’s China.Eugenic Population Policy-Nazi Germany favored “Aryans” over mentally ill or other undesirables.The Nazis tried to breed the super race of Nordic or Aryan types.Eugenics-science devoted to improving the human race through heredity=control who mates with who.An SS banner flies over a lebensborn where babies born of good German girls and SS officers were cared for.
23 Population PoliciesRestrictive or Anti-Natalist Policies discourage births.Policies vary- e.g. despite Vatican policies, most Catholic Italians practice artificial birth control-Philippines (only Asian Catholic country) a different case-govt. restricts birth control.Some countries have learned that industrialization & urbanization do as much as government policy in controlling births.
24 Geography of Demography Mao Zedong encouraged population growth-after his death Deng Xiaoping called for control.1979 launched the One Child Policy with goal of stabilizing at 1.2 billion by end of 20th cent.1970s growth rate 2.4%1985 growth rate 1.1%After 1982 more serious enforcement-mandatory contraception after 1st child.If a 2nd child was born-parents were sterilized.
25 China’s One Child Policy What are some of the limitations, unintended consequences, and contradictions found in government policies toward population growth?
26 China’s aggressive policy enforcement of the One couple, one child” is displayed on this billboard. Violators are subject to heavy fines, loss of job, loss of access to better housing and other penalties.
27 Geography of Demography Recognized minorities (3%) of pop. were exemptMany rural Chinese defied rule, hid pregnant women, failed to register births, prevented inspectors from visiting rural villages.Government took drastic action:Violators were firedLand was confiscatedLost all benefitsPregnant women were arrested & forced to have abortionsHarbin Hospital nurse checks newborns.In some areas a second or third child resulted in 10% reduction in income until kid is 14 yrs old.
28 Geography of Demography First 6 years 70 million abortions1980s about 20 million sterilizations a year-3X as many women as men.Party Members were birth control police-got cash and promotion for enforcing the laws.1984 One Child Policy was relaxed in the countryside-a couple with a daughter-2nd child after 4 years.
29 Geography of Demography Corruption a major problem-permitted to evade rule-bribe.Fertility rates are rising as the rules are relaxed.One Child Policy was practical-but rural tradition opposed the rule.Drive for Zero Population Growth eroded the traditions of Chinese society.Female infanticide a common occurrence.Bottom Chinese woman recently released from jail for having 2nd child
