  2. 2. NAME THE WORLD’S 10 MOST POPULOUS COUNTRIES!
  3. 3. World Population But are countries that crowded?
  4. 4. Population Density is the measure of the number per unit area. It is commonly represented as people per square kilometre. Population Density = Total Population / Total Area (km2)

  8. 8. World Population Distribution
  9. 9. Dense vs Sparse Population
  10. 10. What factors affect population distribution? Physical Human  Climate  Landforms  Topography  Soil  Energy  Mineral resources  Accessibility eg distance from sea coast, natural harbour, navigable rivers or canals  Political boundaries  Controls on trade and migration  Government policies  Types of economic activities  technology eg type of farming, transportation facilities, social organisation, demographic factors Explain how each of these factors lead to sparse and dense population density.
