this article applies to our unit in which we learned that earths population is increasingly climbing, especially in countries such as india and china. this is causing many places to become overpopulated, lowering child/infant mortality rate, and concerning the whole world. this applies to what we learned about population i APHUG.

Unit 2 population and migration

This diagram shows the population in relation to the female education. As female education increases the population grows less, therefore stabilizing the population. Once this increases the female population would make their own decisions. As you can see in the diagram the women must get post secondary education to understand what to do to not have as many kids.

 This diagram relates to unit 2 because it shows the gender inequality and the overall makeshift change that'll occur soon in the future if the population tends to grow in comparison to female education. If the education grows a lot, the population will grow less and it is in a negative direct correlation sequence.

Where everyone in the world is migrating—in one gorgeous chart | Population Demographics | Scoop.it
It's no secret that the world's population is on the move, but it's rare to get a glimpse of where that flow is happening. In a study released in today's Science, a team of geographers used data snapshots to create a broad analysis of global migrations over 20 years. The study was conducted by three...

this chart confirms one of Ravenstein's "laws of migration"- for every movement of migration, there is a flow of counter migration. when a large group of people move to a country, a group of people in that country may move somewhere else. we learned about migration in unit 3 of APHUG.

Sammie Bryant's curator insight, January 3, 12:08 AM

this article applies to the APHUG unit in which we learned about population. it starts by stating that Nigeria is expected to have a larger population than the us in 2050. this is because in sub Saharan Africa, many families have more children to help with the economic income. however, with the lack of hygiene, proper health care, and lack of contraceptives due to the lack of secondary education in women, this will lower the child/infant mortality rate and send the death rate skyrocketing, which will drastically affect their population pyramid. this article does not bring good news.

this article shows how life expectancy is different in every county. it appears to be at its best in europe and north america, while the african countries as well as the middle east appear to be the worst. this is most likely because of the lack of medicine, contraceptives, and education in those countries. we learned about topics concerning this in unit 2 of APHUG.

Riley Tuggle's curator insight, September 10, 2014 9:51 AM

I believe India has more men than women because sometimes when women can't have a son for their first or second child, the men would beat the women to death, or in some instances women are captured and sold for wives, and they may commit suicide they are so depressed. Also, some pregnant women find out their baby is a girl, they would aport or abandon her because sons are apparently more important and successful because they would stay home and take care of their parents when they are elderly and they would carry on the families name. -rt
