Poulation forecasting

  1. 1. POPULATION FORECASTING METHODS Dr. Pallavi Badry Associate Professor V.J.I.T Hyderabad
  2. 2. POPULATION FORECASTING :-  Calculation or prediction of some future events as a result of study and analysis of available records or data is the population forecasting
  3. 3. Factors affecting population growth  Design of water supply and sanitation scheme is based on the projected population of a particular city,  Factors affecting changes in population are:  increase due to births  decrease due to deaths  increase/ decrease due to migration

  5. 5. ARITHMETICAL INCREASE METHOD :-  This method is based on the assumption that the rate of change of population with time is constant.  This method is suitable for large and old city with considerable development. If it is used for small, average or comparatively new cities, it will give lower population estimate than actual value.  In this method the average increase in population per decade is calculated from the past census reports. This increase is added to the present population to find out the population of the next decade.  Thus, it is assumed that the population is increasing at constant rate.  Mathematically,
  6. 6. Geometrical Increase Method (GEOMETRICAL PROGRESSION METHOD)  In this method the percentage increase in population from decade to decade is assumed to remain constant.  Geometric mean increase is used to find out the future increment in population.  Since this method gives higher values and hence should be applied for a new industrial town at the beginning of development for only few decades.
  7. 7. INCREMENTAL INCREASE METHOD  suitable for an average size town under normal condition where the growth rate is found to be in increasing order.  Increase in increment is considered for calculating future population.  The incremental increase is determined for each decade from the past population and the average value is added to the present population along with the average rate of increase.
  8. 8. GRAPHICAL METHOD  Populations of last few decades are correctly plotted to a suitable scale on graph.  The population curve is smoothly extended for getting future population.  This extension should be done carefully and it requires proper experience and judgment.  The best way of applying this method is to extend the curve by comparing with population curve of some other similar cities having the similar growth condition.
  9. 9. COMPARATIVE GRAPHICAL METHOD  In this method the census populations of cities already developed under similar conditions are plotted.  The curve of past population of the city under consideration is plotted on the same graph.  The curve is extended carefully by comparing with the population curve of some similar cities having the similar condition of growth.  The advantage of this method is that the future population can be predicted from the present population even in the absence of some of the past census report.
  10. 10. MASTER PLAN METHOD  The big and metropolitan cities are generally not developed in haphazard manner, but are planned and regulated by local bodies according to master plan.  The master plan is prepared for next 25 to 30 years for the city.  According to the master plan the city is divided into various zones such as residence, commerce and industry.  The population densities are fixed for various zones in the master plan.  From this population density total water demand and wastewater generation for that zone can be worked out.  By this method it is very easy to access precisely the design population.
  11. 11. LOGISTIC CURVE METHOD  This method is used when the growth rate of population due to births, deaths and migrations takes place under normal situation and it is not subjected to any extraordinary changes like epidemic, war, earth quake or any natural disaster, etc., and the population follows the growth curve characteristics of living things within limited space and economic opportunity.  If the population of a city is plotted with respect to time, the curve so obtained under normal condition looks like S-shaped curve and is known as logistic curve
