Population Characteristics Population characteristics are factors that tell us how the population is changing or how well people live in a country.
Birth Rate
The birth rate tells us the number of babies born each year for every 1000 people in a country. In Canada, the average number of children born is about 1.55 per family. That is called fertility rate. The average fertility rate in the world is 2.7 children per woman. Death Rate

Death rate is the number of people who die each year for every 1000 people in a country. Sometimes death rate goes up for a year because of a war or something bad that happened.
Literacy rates
Literacy Rate is a measure of the population over 15 who can read and write.
My big idea is to build another bridge near that Ambassador bridge. This would help with so many things. Canada and the U.S. risk losing as much as $28.6 billion US a year in trade by the year 2030 unless another bridge is built between Windsor and Detroit.
About 25 per cent of the trade between the U.S. and Canada goes through the Windsor-Detroit trade corridor – more than $1 billion a day. And 70 per cent of goods are moved by truck.
This bridge would pretty much be a trade bridge because it is for trucks only. This would make alot more jobs. It is expected to have 25,000 more available jobs.
Some jobs could be the people who let you cross the border by checking your passsport, the people who let you cross the border when you give them money, police watching the area, traffic directors, workers at the duty free store, alot of security guards and lots more. The correlation between the population characteristics is that in developing countries the population is higher because people have more children. They think that having more children helps the family income by making many children work. In developed countries, women that are educated are married later and have less children, where as in developing countries education is lacking especially in women. Developed Countries
The country pays for everyone's education
More jobs
A better democratic system
Better health care
Higher life expectancy
Freedom to choose your career

Developing Countries
Country usually doesn't pay for everyone's education
Less jobs - Less quality jobs
Sometimes the country has a dictatership system or a low scale democratic system
Not as safe and less protection by the law
Rare and poor health care
Lower life expectancy
Many workers have no choice but to follow their family's trade

What are jobs around the world? Jobs around the world consist of farming, working on computers, entertainment, tourism, manufacturing and office work. Where are jobs around the world? More and more people are starting to work from their home now. Other than that there are alot of jobs in Asia, North America and Europe. The traditional industries in the area are farming, technology, manufacturing and medical. But in Windsor it is mostly automotive. Canada's unemployment rate is 6.2% while Windsor's is 10.1%! But that is still better than 15.7% in 1991.
Traditional Industry sectors around the world Primary Idustries
Before, most people were farmers and were self employed. Many future jobs in this industry will require skills in design and engineering. For example, farmers are now usinginfared satellite images to install drainage tiles and add fertalizer in the feilds. Secondary Industries
In this sector, jobs are mainly in manufacturing but recently people are losing their jobs to machines that work better. Some manufacturing companies have moved themselves to a developing country. I think that is because it will provide jobs for the people there and they wont have to spend there money on buying expensive machinery.
Tertiary Industries
Our society is becoming mor dependant on services like procesing information and communicating technologies. In everyday life people need to be able to read, understand and process information. Communication depends on reading and writing skills, therefore literacy skills are very important.
