South Korea Population in APHG

"This is the 2019 NCGE presentation showing how case studies can be brought into the APHG classroom. In this presentation, South Korea's shifting population trends are used as the example of a case study worth bringing into the classroom."
Seth Dixons insight:
Global fertility rates have been steadily dropping since 1960 (Bloomberg article) and South Korea is probably the best example to use to discuss the rapid shifts in this trend. Above is the 2019 NCGE presentation that shows how to use the National Atlas of Korea in the APHG classroom using population as the prime case study (here are the powerpoint version and the PDF version).

Best Case Study for Declining Populations? South Korea –

Best Case Study for Declining Populations? South Korea – | Geography Education | Scoop.it
South Korea is the world’s first country to have a total fertility rate below 1 (in 2019, it dropped to 0.98). It may not be the largest population of the 86 declining populations (114 countries have TFRs above replacement level), but it makes for an incredibly important case-study to explore emerging demographic patterns because in the coming years, it probably won’t be the only country with a TFR below 1.
