2) Define and give an example of a countries of population density, arithmetic density, and physiological density. You will need to research the data of a country in order to answer the second part of this question.
3) How are populations distributed across the world? Be sure to reference each major population region.
4) What conclusions can you draw from the map on pages 42-43? Any patterns that you notice? How does the world population on pages 42-43 compare to the map on pages 44-45 on population density?
5) How often does the U.S. take a census? What is the purpose of the census?
6) What was the premise of Thomas Malthus Theory of Overpopulation?
7) What do Neo-Malthusians argue? Which side do you agree with the most? Be sure to explain your answer using specific details to justify your argument.
8) What is doubling time? How can this help us understand population growth?
9) After observing the map on pages 48-49, what conclusions do you observe about world population growth?
10) What regions and nations are experiencing the greatest population increases? What challenges do these countries now face?
11) What can the demographic transition model (DTM) tell us as we study population?
12) Draw a copy of the DTM and write a word that summarizes each of the 5 stages.
13) How does population pyramids connect to the DTM?
14) What is the purpose of a population pyramid?
15) How does the geography of health influence the dynamics of a country? Be sure to discuss more developed (MDC) vs. less developed countries (LDC).
16) What is an infectious disease?
17) What type of diffusion would the spread of HIV/AIDS be? Explain your reasoning.
18) What observations do you deduce from the map on life expectancy on pages 66-67?
19) How does the government impact population change?
20) Policies that encourage population growth are known as pro-natalist whereas policies that discourage population growth or limit is are known as anti-natalist. Research and provide an example of a country that fits each type. Be sure to briefly explain their policy.
