The Population Of Arab World
Transcript of The Population Of Arab World
The standard definition of the Arab world comprises the 22 countries and territories of the Arab League stretching from the Atlantic Ocean in the west to the Arabian Sea in the east, and from the Mediterranean Sea in the north to the Horn of Africa and the Indian Ocean in the southeast.It has a combined population of around 422 million people, with over half under 25 years of age.
Population Of Arab World
The population of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region has increased rapidly over the course of the 20th
century. During the 70 years between 1914 and 1994, the region's total population has grown by nearly a factor of five,
largely as a result of natural rates of increase in indigenous populations. Population increases are generally attributable to migration.Population growth rates among many of
the nations of the region are presently among the highest worldwide. Despite family planning measures undertaken in
many MENA countries, continued population growth remains the most critical socioeconomic problem in the region as
governments struggle to support their growing populations with inadequate resources.
Growth Of Population In Arab World
The main reasons are :
Crude birth rates.

2. The agricultural and industrial areas
3. Coastal plains and sedimentary plains.
Concentration is less in following areas:
1. Rugged and mountains areas.
2. Forest areas and moorland

In 1980, the crude birth rate was 38 in Egypt, 46
in Syria and Saudi Arabia, and 47 in Jordan. Only in the last decade
has there been evidence of a reduction in crude birth rates. In 1994,
the crude birth rate was estimated to be 29 in Egypt, 33 in Jordan,
and 26 in Tunisia.
Improved agricultural practices have lead to fewer famines, allowing farmers to sustain much larger numbers of people. Machinery reduces manpower needed to farm while improved fertilizers and pesticides increase crop yields and reduce crops lost to pests.
Advances in health care technology and medicine allow fewer individuals to die from injuries and illnesses. Health care is so effective that euthanasia and the Hippocratic Oath are sometimes debated.
Better sanitation has lead to fewer diseases being spread through water and contaminated surfaces.
Vaccines have lead to the elimination of many diseases such as measles and tuberculosis. Measles and tuberculosis were once leading causes of death.
Standard of living
Areas with low standards of living have high birth rates, but also have high infant mortality rates.
Sedimentary Plains :
Forest areas :
