Population Growth & the Industrial Revolution
Transcript of Population Growth & the Industrial Revolution
The relation the Population Growth has with the Industrial Revolution
Because of the population growth there was an increase in demand of goods.
More people were available to work.
The Industrial Revolution was the first period in history during which there was a simultaneous increase in population and in per capita income.
Thank you for watching!
One of the major reasons why the Industrial Revolution occurred is because around 1740 the population began to increase steadily.
The population grew because there weren’t any major epidemics and there was a rise in the birth rate.
Amid 1750 and 1900 the number of people in Britain increases more than 3 times!
In 1701 the population of Ireland was 3 million, and in 1851 it increased to 7 million, and then to 1901 it decreased to 4.5 million.
The population of England, Scotland, and Wales was 6 million in 1701, and increased dramatically to 38 million in 1901!

The increases of machines led to more food and lower prices which lead to the population growth.
