How Does Urbanization Affect Population Growth?

Improved Essays
Fertility conditions will most likely remain much higher than the more developed nations and the world averages for sometime, and population growth may remain slightly more expansive and characteristic of a mid-stage 3 in the Demographic transition model until certain improvements are made. Repercussions often associated with least developed countries experiencing fast population growth and urbanization are poverty, hunger, higher infant mortality rate, poor social services, lacking infrastructure, and inadequate health services.
Based off the World Population Data Sheet the Togolese Republic’s rate of natural increase is 2.7% as of 2015, while their net migration rate per 1,000 population is 0, demonstrating that virtually all population growth in the country comes from strictly births, deaths, fertility, and mortality of its citizens. Their rate of natural increase has fluctuated from 3.2%

This projection fell short of the actual population size of 5 million people at the turn of the millennium. The doubling rate in 1980 was approximately 23.3 years but the actual population doubled even faster than this measure. My assumption is that conditions of mortality likely changed and improved more quickly than researchers had anticipated creating larger percentages of natural increase over this timeframe. In 1986, the projected population of the country of Togo for the year 2100 was 14.9 million people. Since the growth trends seem to be reaching the constrictive demographic transition model (late-stage 3, early 4) but still has a significant growth rate that is remaining relatively consistent. I would infer that this projection might be close, but slightly less than the actual population that will be reached in 2100 due to the dynamic structure and unpredictability of developing

    The first is the pre-industrial stage, where birth and death rate were high and population growth was slow. The second stage was population explosion, with improved technology and better living standards. The death rate is low and birth rate is high leading to high population growth rate. The third stage was a decline in birth rate due to socio-economic changes and the last stage lead to a stabilized population growth.” (Shah, 2015) The aim is to get all the countries in the final stage where population growth becomes…

    Interest Rates Don’t.” has better execution in delivering the data,but commentary done in The Orange County Register editorial is better. They explain their point and use fact to back it up. When they compare two different points in our history one point is in the 1970’s the minimum wage increased the productive of works and in the 2000’s the minimum wage only grew a little leading the productivity to grew a little as well compared to the 1970’s data. “Since the early 1970s, median pay has risen by only 8.7 percent, after adjusting for inflation, while productivity has grown by 72 percent. Since 2000, the gap has become even bigger, with pay up only 1.8 percent, despite productivity growth of 22 percent.” The author in the New York Times effectively uses statistical facts to support his argument but does not show good commentary.…

    The doubling time (time needed for the current population to double) for China is about sixty seven years and, for India, about forty two years. These numbers may seem small but compared to the U.S, who boasts a large population as well, the doubling time for this nation is one hundred and sixteen years. When sixty seven and forty two are compared to one hundred and sixteen, you can really see how quickly China and India are growing. The United States and India have similar fertility rates but since the difference in population is significant, India’s population yields more births at 2% than that of the United States’. China and India’s population is an occurrence of exponential growth as long as it continues to grow at the same percentage each year.…

    If it keeps up with this development consistently, within the next decade, India’s GDP could surpass that of China and finally experience double-digit growth. WHY India is expected to have exceptional growth in the next decade. This potential lies within many factors, including the opportunity to catch up with developed Asian nations, the rise in Indians’ purchasing power and strong government reforms. A big part of India’s high growth prospect lies in the word “convergence.” In 2015, India’s Gross National Income per capita was $1,590, ranked 170th out of 217 countries (World Bank, 2016). Because India’s per-capita income is relatively low comparing to others at a comparable level of market development, there is a tremendous opportunity to grow and catch up.…

    Aging Populations Current world population is around 7,320,000,000 people (United States Census Bureau, 2016), a figure that is predicted to surpass nine billion by 2050. Most of this additional rise will be seen in the developing regions of the world, most notably in Africa where fertility and mortality levels are still high. In contrast, the developed regions of the world will only experience a small rise in population. A figure that would be negative if it wasn’t for large projected net migration figures (United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs Population Division, 2009). The ever increasing levels of population make for interesting study when comparing them against the changing demographic trends across the globe.…

    The company lost 34% of earnings between 1999 and 2000, but manage to come out of that loss by 2001. However, even without significant loss here, the Net Income does not equally represent the strength in the company’s financial growth the way sales do. The overall production costs have increased steadily as well, but this is probably due to the large amount of inventory added between 2000 and 2001. We see the increase of inventory cost spike from an 35% up to 58%, increasing total assets and we see that reflected back into the sales. This is supported also by the large spike (49% increase) in short-term debt from 1999 to 2000.…

    In developing countries the birth rate in on the rise and the world population is expected to reach 9 billion by 2050 ("U.N.," 2014, p. 1). This in turn mean a reduction in the ratio of works versus those retired. With less people working that means a slower recover from the recession according to Adam Ozimek of Forbes (Ozimek, 2013, para. 6). Ozimek goes on to say this reduction in birth rates increases immigration.…

    We have seen that production level above 70,000 mmcfs per day has the natural gas pricing kept at around $2-$6 per MMBtu, although we have to consider demand while making such case which has grown since then. Having grown demand due to low pricing, the possibility of surpassing the supply can easily result into higher pricing. The fact that the current futures pricing for 2018 around only 10% higher than the current spot price could be expected to have significant change if the demand outlast the supply in current…
