1 Chapter 3 Population, Migration

2 03.01 Which continent contains the most people? 1. North America 2. South America 3. Europe 4. Asia 5. Africa

3 03.01 Which continent contains the most people? 1. North America 2. South America 3. Europe 4. Asia 5. Africa Explanation: Asia contains over 60% of the world’s people.

4 03.02 The demographic center of the United States is currently located in which state? 1. Virginia 2. Kentucky 3. Missouri 4. Texas 5. Colorado

5 03.02 The demographic center of the United States is currently located in which state? 1. Virginia 2. Kentucky 3. Missouri 4. Texas 5. Colorado Explanation: Half the population of the United States lives north of the demographic center and half lives south of it, while, at the same time, half the population lives east of the point and half lives west of it.

6 03.03 The count of the number of people in a country, region, or city is a: 1. census 2. vital record 3. crude birth rate 4. middle cohort 5. dependency ratio

7 03.03 The count of the number of people in a country, region, or city is a: 1. census 2. vital record 3. crude birth rate 4. middle cohort 5. dependency ratio Explanation: Censuses also typically collect information about economic and social characteristics, in addition to numbers of people.

8 03.04 Which of these countries would have an age-sex pyramid that is most pyramidal in shape? 1. Mali 2. United States 3. Italy 4. all would be equally pyramidal 5. none would have a pyramidal shape

9 03.04 Which of these countries would have an age-sex pyramid that is most pyramidal in shape? 1. Mali 2. United States 3. Italy 4. all would be equally pyramidal 5. none would have a pyramidal shape Explanation: Mali is a developing country with a high birthrate, and therefore a high percentage of children in the population.

10 03.05 Information about births, deaths, marriages, and the incidence of certain infectious diseases is known as: 1. census 2. vital records 3. medical geography 4. demography 5. demographic transition

11 03.05 Information about births, deaths, marriages, divorces, and the incidence of certain infectious diseases is known as: 1. census 2. vital records 3. medical geography 4. demography 5. demographic transition Explanation: Vital records are an important source of information about populations and population dynamics.

12 03.06 In the Demographic Transition Model, a society in Phase 4 (Industrial) would be characterized by: 1. high birth rates and high death rates 2. low birth rates and low death rates 3. high birth rates but low death rates 4. low birth rates but high death rates 5. a declining death rate and a stable birth rate

13 03.06 In the Demographic Transition Model, a society in Phase 4 (Industrial) would be characterized by: 1. high birth rates and high death rates 2. low birth rates and low death rates 3. high birth rates but low death rates 4. low birth rates but high death rates 5. a declining death rate and a stable birth rate

14 03.07 The total number of migrants moving into and out of a place, region, or country is known as: 1. internal migration 2. international migration 3. gross migration 4. eco-migration 5. arithmetic density

15 03.07 The total number of migrants moving into and out of a place, region, or country is known as: 1. internal migration 2. international migration 3. gross migration 4. eco-migration 5. arithmetic density Explanation: Gross migration is the total number of migrants. If 2000 people moved into a place, and 1000 moved out, the gross migration would be 3000.

16 03.08 Using this cartogram, how does the population of Australia compare to that of Madagascar? 1. Australia’s population is about ten times that of Madagascar 2. Madagascar’s population is about ten times that of Australia 3. Australia’s population is about three times that of Madagascar 4. Madagascar’s population is about three times that of Australia 5. both populations are about equal in size

17 03.08 Using this cartogram, how does the population of Australia compare to that of Madagascar? 1. Australia’s population is about ten times that of Madagascar 2. Madagascar’s population is about ten times that of Australia 3. Australia’s population is about three times that of Madagascar 4. Madagascar’s population is about three times that of Australia 5. both populations are about equal in size

18 03.09 Using this cartogram, how does the population of the United Kingdom compare to that of Ireland? 1. The UK’s population is much larger 2. The UK’s population is slightly larger 3. Ireland’s population is much larger 4. Ireland’s population is slightly larger 5. both populations are about equal in size

19 03.09 Using this cartogram, how does the population of the United Kingdom compare to that of Ireland? 1. The UK’s population is much larger 2. The UK’s population is slightly larger 3. Ireland’s population is much larger 4. Ireland’s population is slightly larger 5. both populations are about equal in size

20 03.10 The study of the characteristics of human populations is: 1. cartography 2. regional geography 3. human geography 4. population policy 5. demography

21 03.10 The study of the characteristics of human populations is: 1. cartography 2. regional geography 3. human geography 4. population policy 5. demography Explanation: Demography, which shares the same root as democracy, is the study of the characteristics of human populations.

22 03.11 An age-sex pyramid with a tornado-like shape would reflect what kind of community? 1. college town 2. military base 3. traditional suburb 4. retirement community 5. business district

23 03.11 An age-sex pyramid with a tornado-like shape would reflect what kind of community? 1. college town 2. military base 3. traditional suburb 4. retirement community 5. business district Explanation: A tornado-like shape, or upside- down pyramid, would reflect a high percentage of elderly residents and few younger residents.

24 03.12 Population movement caused by the degradation of land and essential natural resources is: 1. eco-migration 2. internal migration 3. demographic transition 4. external migration 5. suburbanization

25 03.12 Population movement caused by the degradation of land and essential natural resources is: 1. eco-migration 2. internal migration 3. demographic transition 4. external migration 5. suburbanization Explanation: Environmental problems, caused by human or natural disasters, have forced people to migrate to other areas. In recent times, parts of Africa and Asia have experienced high levels of eco-migration.

26 03.13 Most countries with very high birthrates are located in: 1. North America 2. South America 3. Europe 4. Africa 5. Asia

27 03.13 Most countries with very high birthrates are located in: 1. North America 2. South America 3. Europe 4. Africa 5. Asia

28 03.14 The population of individuals born between the years 1946 and 1964 is known as: 1. Generation X 2. Generation Y 3. Baby Boom generation 4. Original Generation 5. Net Generation

29 03.14 The population of individuals born between the years 1946 and 1964 is known as: 1. Generation X 2. Generation Y 3. Baby Boom generation 4. Original Generation 5. Net Generation Explanation: The Baby Boom is known as such because it reflects a sharp but temporary increase in the birthrate after World War II.

30 03.15 Which of these countries is expected to decline in population by the year 2020? 1. United States 2. Saudi Arabia 3. Afghanistan 4. Brazil 5. Italy
