Unit 1: Thinking Geographically

Unit 2: Population

  • What is an MDC (Developed) and LDC (Developing)? – (Not in book)
  • Demography
  • Overpopulation
  • Humans distributed across earth’s surface – uniformly or not uniformly
  • What is a census?
  • How do concentration and density relate to distribution of population
  • What are the 4 major population clusters? (2/3 of the world’s inhabitants are located in these 4 regions).
  • Other population clusters
  • Ecumene
  • What are the 4 sparsely populated regions?
  • Population Density (Use population geography definitions for the terms listed below)
    • Arithmetic Density
    • Physiological Density
      • What is physiological density?
      • What is arable land?
    • Agricultural Density
  • CBR
  • CDR
  • NIR – What is it and how is it calculated?
  • Doubling Time
  • LDC’s vs MDC’s for NIR – Where is a large percentage of the NIR clustered?
  • Total Fertility Rate – What is it and how is it calculated? TFR and the magic 2.1 – we will talk about in class.
  • Mortality
    • Developed countries have lower rates …… whereas developing countries have higher rates ….
  • Population pyramid
  • Dependency ratio
  • Sex ratio
  • Demographic Transition Model (need to understand each stage and the reasons for low/high/moderate growth for each)
    • Stage 1: Low growth
      • Are there any countries currently in stage 1?
    • Stage 2: High growth
    • Stage 3: Moderate growth
    • Stage 4: Low growth
  • Industrial Revolution
    • Definition
    • It’s role in the demographic transition model
  • Medical Revolution
    • Definition
    • It’s role in the demographic transition model
  • Zero Population Growth
  • Declining birthrates
    • What are the reasons that birth rates are declining?
  • Malthus and hypothesis on Overpopulation
    • Geometrically vs arithmetically
    • Critics
    • Theory vs Reality
  • Possible Stage 5 of the Demographic Transition Model: Decline
  • Two most populous countries in the world are ..
  • Epidemiology(Start of KI #4)
  • Epidemiologic Transition
    • Does it correlate with the Demographic Transition Model?
    • Stages and examples
  • Pandemic
  • Infant Mortality Rate
  • Life expectancy
