This video is primarily talking on the widely known topic of migration. 3 percent of the worlds population is living away from there place of birth. The push of migration from places include poverty, war, and environmental disasters. The migration pull in some places are because of  economic opportunity, and political freedom. Migration is increasing, and is thought of as a bad thing.(s.s.)

This video is great for going over the many different aspects that go along with migration. It talks about what migration is and the reasons why people migrate known as push and pull factors. It talks about the different types of migration such as asylum seakers and illegal immigration. It mentions the disadvantages and advantages of migration.

Population clock for every country

Population clock for every country | population and migration | Scoop.it
Real time statistics for current population of any country. Real time data on population, births, deaths, net migration and population growth.

 

This site shows various demographic statistics for every country including some based on projections in demographic trends in the given country.  If the current trends hold (which they won't, but that is still an interesting measure), the entire Japanese population will disappear in 1,000 years according to this Global Post article.

In AP Human Geo., this article relates to the population growth theme because it utilizes all of the indicators we learned in this class, including CBR, CDR, net migration rates, and population growth rates.

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

Migration and big baby boom sends population soaring

Migration and big baby boom sends population soaring | population and migration | Scoop.it

Britain’s population grew by 420,000 last year – a rise equivalent to a city the size of Cardiff. The growth is due to immigration and the biggest baby boom in 40 years, official figures shows. About 63.7million people live in Britain, said the Office for National Statistics. The population grew most in London, with an extra 100,000 residents now in the capital. There were 254,000 more births than deaths last year. In addition, 165,600 more people entered the country than emigrated. Many migrants to Britain are from China, India, Germany, USA, Pakistan, Poland and Australia. Midwives are also feeling the strain from the baby boom. The number of children per woman, known as the fertility rate, rose to 1.94 last year from 1.93 in 2011. The chief executive of the Royal College of Midwives, Cathy Warwick, said another 5,000 midwives were needed in England to cope with the increase. ‘In Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, births are at recent highs,’ she said. ‘England births continue to boom, with the proportion of births to older women growing faster than for younger women. ‘This places pressure on maternity services and we are struggling to provide high-quality antenatal and postnatal care. ‘Despite welcome increases in the numbers of midwives recently, there is still a shortage.’ The population of England now stands at 53.5million. A further 5.3million live in Scotland, 3.1million in Wales and 1.8million in Northern Ireland, making Britain the third-most populous EU state. UKIP leader Nigel Farage said the figures proved the government hasn’t got a grip on immigration. ‘The results of this increase in population can be felt in communities up and down the country as public services struggle to cope with increases in demand,’ he said.

Unit 2 population and migration 

This article explains how the baby boom and migration has effected many major European and Asian countries. It goes into great depth about the overall migration income and birth rate spikes. It shows how there is a major shift in population and migration of the world today. 

This article relates to unit 2 because it shows how much the world has expanded through population and migration and shows the effects of this on the world's cities and their capita amount of people. This article demonstrates how this happened and explains it thoroughly relating it to unit 2.
