    • The Growth of World Population
    • Key Terms
      Population Distribution – How people are spread across the earth.
      Population Density – The number of people living in a given area. Usually measured as people per square kilometre.
    • Key Terms
      Birth Rate - A measure of an area’s fertility. It is expressed as number of live births per 1,000 people in 1 year. (Crude Birth Rate)
      Death Rate – The number of deaths per 1,000 people in 1 year. (Crude Death Rate)
      Life Expectancy – The average number of years from birth that a person can expect to live.
    • Key Terms (con’t)
      Longevity – the increase in life expectancy over a period of time. It is a direct result of improved medical provision and increased levels of economic development. People live longer and this creates an older population.
    • Key Terms (con’t)
      Natural Change – The change in size of a population caused by the interrelationship between birth and death rates. If birth rate exceeds death rate, a population will increase.
      If death rate exceeds birth rate, a population will decline.
    • Global Population
      Growth in World population has not taken place evenly.
    • World Population Growth
    • Population Change
      Components of Population Change:
      Fertility (births)
      Mortality (deaths)
    • Measures of Fertility
      Crude Birth Rate (CBR)
      Total Fertility Rate – the average number of children born to a women during her lifetime.
      Replacement Level Fertility –the level at which each generation has only enough daughters to replace themselves. Approximately 2.12 is replacement rate.
    • Measures of Mortality
      Crude Death Rate
      Age-Specific Death Rate
      Age- and Sex- Specific Death Rate
      Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) – a measure of the number of deaths of infants before their first birthday per 1000 live births.
      Life Expectancy – the average number of years a person can expect to live.
      Maternal Mortality Rate – the number of women who die as a result of complications in pregnancy and childbirth. Measured per 1000 live births in a year.
