Transcript of World Population Project

Bangladesh Males have the higher population in the oldest age group. The age distribution pyramid showed population based on age and gender. 2. Which gender has the higher population in the oldest age group? How can you account for this? Explain. Somewhat, the pyramid has a sudden growth in population between the ages of 20 and 29. 3. Does your country look like a pyramid? The growth is at a very slow/steady pace. Which is not necessarily bad for the country. 4. What can you tell about your country's growth rate by looking at your histogram? The pyramid will then look as if it were flipped upside down in a mirror. Two pyramids put together tip to tip. 5. If birth and death rates remain the same, what will your pyramid look like in 25 years? Food shortage, increase in medical care, baby booms, or increase in death rate. 6. What are some factors that could change the shape of your pyramid? About 30-35% of the population has not yet reached the childbearing age. This says that there is a slight chance that Bangladesh's population will growing exponentially, or slowly increase. 7. Determine the percentage of the population that has yet to reach childbearing age. What do these numbers say about the prospects for future growth? If there are jobs that need to be filled, there may not be enough people to fill them as of yet because a majority of the population is either retired or not yet at the legal working age. Also, this could cause a food shortage if most of the jobs available are in farming. 8. If your country is not increasing in population growth rate, what are some socio-economic problems that might occur? Yes, because on the x and y axis, there are increments that allow us to look at the population not only based on gender and age, but also at the millions in which they occur. 9. Can you determine from your graph how many people make up the population of your country? Why or why not? 10. Does your country have a baby boom in it? (A bulge in somewhere in the middle of it) What could account for this? Yes, possibly. There could have been a decrease in the death rate or infant mortality rate. I would sell something along the lines of health care, open nursing homes, or increase availability for vaccines for children & adults. 11. If you had a business and you wanted to capitalize on your information about the population age distribution, what would you sell? And why? About 10% of the population is above 65. 12. What % of your population is above the age of 65? No, our pyramid has a sudden increase in population towards the middle. Without that slight increase, the pyramids would be almost the same. 13. Does your pyramid look like that of the World Population Pyramid? Our population is decreasing and will continue to do so, based on the growth pattern that has already occurred. 14. From the information graphed on your histogram, briefly discuss whether your country is increasing in population size, decreasing, at or close to ZPG. I would categorize Bangladesh as a developing country. It is not quite a third world country, but it most definitely is not a developed country. 15. From your data and histogram, would you place it in the category of developing or developed country or mid-way? explain. By: Katie Coffee & Raven Rice The population of Bangladesh is 161,083,804. Population The crude birth rate in Bangladesh is 22.53 births/1,000 in the population. Crude Birth Rate The crude death rate in Bangladesh is 5.71 deaths/ 1,000 in population. Crude Death Rate The total fertility rate in Bangladesh is 2.55 born/woman. Total Fertility Rate The population growth rate is 1.579 in Bangladesh today. The Growth Rate Total: 70.06 years
Male:68.21 years
Female: 71.98 years Life Expectancy The doubling time of Bangladesh's population is 44.3 years. Doubling Time The infant mortality rate in Bangladesh is 48.99 deaths/1,000 lives. The Infant Mortality Rate The pyramid is decreasing as the age group increases. Age Pyramid Bangladesh is a developing country. Bangladesh gained its independence from Pakistan on March 26,1971. The borders of present-day Bangladesh were established with the partition of Bengal and India in 1947, when the region became East Pakistan, part of the newly formed Islamic State of Pakistan. However, it was separated from the western wing of Indian territory. Due to political exclusion, ethnic and linguistic discrimination, as well as economic neglect by the politically-dominant West Pakistan, popular agitation led by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman grew against West Pakistan, resulting in the Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971, which the Bengali people won with the support of India. Political History Buddhism once made up 12% of the population.
Hindu army crushed Buddhism and now makes up 9.6% of the population.
Islam is practiced by 89.%5 percent of the country. Religious History More than half of the GDP is generated by the service sector; while nearly half of Bangladeshis are employed in the agriculture sector. Other goods produced are textiles, jute, fish, vegetables, fruit, leather and leather goods, ceramics, ready-made goods. After succeeding from Pakistan, Bangladesh had a large work force, but the workers were under trained and under paid. By the mid- 1980s, Economic policies aimed at encouraging private enterprise and investment, privatizing public industries, reinstating budgetary discipline, and liberalizing the import regime were accelerated. Now the economy is better than it has ever been. Economic History Average age of Marriage:
Men: 29 years
Women: 18 years
Average age of a female with her first child id 16 years old. Marriage and Children In Bangladesh, a male child is more preferable than a female child. The man has authority over the family, and sole custody of male children older than the age of eight and female children after puberty. Religious/ Societal Customs I do believe that the population pyramid will have a reverse effect than what it has now. I believe that there will be more elders as technology increases, and the country becomes slightly developed. With that being said, the country's youth will be in abundance because the previous generation was the so called baby boomers/ survivors. Population Pyramid in 25 Years Yes, most of them occurring in the urban slums of Bangladesh. Due to climate and economic migrants. Thus creating a population with social strains in this tiny and impoverished country of 160 million people. Have any baby booms occurred in your country? Something that would both make me money and be a good business plan for Bangladesh to invest in would be clinics for those who do not have health care. Also nursing homes to take care of the elders that do not have anyone to look after them, and possibly orphanages for the next generation. A Business Plan for Bangladesh About 3.4% of the population is over the age of 65 in Bangladesh. What is the percentage of the population over the age of 65? The record shows that about 33.8% of the population is between the ages of 0 and 14. Which means that as of now, the percentage would be about 40%. What percentage of the population is below the age of 4? The respect for women and girls is much lower than that of a man or boy. That results in many combinations of rules that apply to relations in one's public & private lives. Women have a low status and a high level of poverty, illiteracy, poor health, unemployment, and a general lack of access to social and economical opportunities to participate in the development process of the society. All in all, there is plenty of gender discrimination in Bangladesh. What is the relationship between men and women in your country?
