Population Debate

Population Debate | RPSHS Changing Nations - AC Year 8 Geography (ACHGK054, ACHGK055, ACHGK056, ACHGK057, ACHGK058, ACHGK059) | Scoop.it
Let's look at an issue that's been attracting plenty of headlines in the last few weeks; population growth. When you compare Australia to other countries we're not that crowded. But Australia is growing and there's now talk about whether or not that's a good thing. Sarah takes a look at how Aussies get to be Aussies and why population numbers can affect everyone.

RPSHS Geography Year 8's insight:

A summary of the OECD's International Migration Outlook 2013 report that shows that Australia is one of the top three countries in the world in terms of: proportion of population born overseas; net migration inflow rate; proportion of foreign students in tertiary education; and share of working holiday makers worldwide.

RPSHS Geography Year 8's insight:

From GTAV: Students explore issues associated with internal migration within China. They consider the disparity between rural and urban living standards as a driver for one of the largest population movements in recent world history. Students also explore the issues associated with the location of minorities in China and in particular the government sponsored Han migration into Xinjiang Province.

This module examines the rapid urbanisation, development and redevelopment that is occurring in many parts of China. Students will gain insights into the impact on rural migrants having to adjust to life in big cities and the displacement of many city dwellers due to rapid building development. Students will focus on people and some of the issues people face through conducting a mock interview and presenting possible solutions to accommodation shortages.

Well also in the news lately we've been hearing a lot from politicians about the best way to deal with asylum seekers. But amongst all the arguing it's easy to forget that we're actually talking about real people. We caught up with a family of refugees as they arrived in Australia for the first time. And as Alfie reports settling into a new life here can take a lot of organisation.

Where are the world's biggest Chinese and Indian immigrant communities? MORE Chinese people live outside mainland China than French people live in France, with some to be found in almost every country.

 

The two most populous countries in the world, India and China, are mentioned frequently when teaching population geography.  However, it is typical in the United States to pass over these countries when discussing migration; this graphic shows the diasporas are quite extensive and highly influential.

Elle Reagan's curator insight, October 17, 2014 1:59 PM

When I first came across this article I thought it was intriguing but not surprising. Most people fleeing from India and China go somewhere nearby versus somewhere far away. Places like Cambodia, Vietnam, and Indonesia have a high rate of Chinese and Indian migrants, which proves one of Ravenstein's laws.

Clayton and Annie's curator insight, February 12, 2015 10:07 AM

This is showing indias geography. This article is telling you where the most populated parts of India are. Which are most of them live out side of China. The two most populated countrys are India and China. India has a higher people per square mile than China. 

Flo Cuadra Scrofft's curator insight, May 27, 2015 12:58 AM

Summary- More Chinese people live outside mainland China than French people live in France. Some 22m ethnic Indians are scattered across every continent. Diasporas have been a part of the world for millennia; they are quite extensive and highly influential.The map highlights the world's top 20 destinations for Chinese and Indian migrants

 

Insight- since China and India are the most populous countries of the world, it makes sense that we ask ourselves "well, do people there ever go to other places to find a little bit more of personal space that is so scarce in their home countries?" They actually do. Maybe it is not because they need personal space. Working opportunities and better living conditions might be what drives these people to migrate from their countries.

CD - The reasons for and effects of international migration in Australia.

 

Immigration is one of the strongest links that seems to bind these Facebook neighbours,as thousands of people pour over borders or over seas, seeking jobs or fleeing violence, and making new connections and maintaining old friendships along the way. Economic links, through trade or investment, also seem to be strong predictors of country connectedness.
