What is the difference bewteen population density and population
Transcript of What is the difference bewteen population density and population
Definition of population distribution
Examples of Population Density
The definition of population distribution:
The arrangement or spread of people living in a given area. Also how the population is arranged according to variables such as age,race,or sex
In 2012, Canada had a population density of 4 people per square km.
In 2012, China had a population density of 144 people per square km.
What Does Population Density Look Like?
Places like India and Japan have their population very close together but places like Canada has their population very spread out
Definition of Population Density
Examples of Population Distribution
China's complex natural conditions caused an unevenly distributed population: There's a large contrast between the population of the Eastern half of China and the population of the West and Northwest.
Stronger economic system (More companies)
Everything is in walking distance, don't need vehicles as often (less carbon waste)
At the beginning of 2013, 86.2% of people in Canada lived in Ontario, Quebec, BC and Alberta.
Enough space to provide themselves (self-sufficient).
Able to use renewable energy sources
Far away from danger (Ex. riots)
What Does Population Distribution Look Like?
Places like India and Japan have many people for their size but places like Canada and USA have very few people for their size
Lack of people, so population starts to decrease
Starve because the crops are failing to grow
Have to establish your own living, making it harder to live in a low-density area
Less space and privacy
Higher population increases spread of disease pollution
Paved roads; soil becomes ruined
Mortgages not met (in dept)
Food supplies very far away
No public transportation (bike, car, walk only)
City dwellers come to suburbs because they are hungry and don't have food
The definition of population density is a
measurement of the amount of people
living in one particular area it is measured
in unit volume or unit area so it basically means how much people live in a certain area
The difference between population density and distribution and density is that density is about the amount of people in a certain space but population distribution is how spread out the population is. People live in places that have many jobs, resources, good real estate and availability to survive (certain foods and resources)
