Population change


The world’s population has grown rapidly over the past 100 years. This is due mainly to improved food supplies and better medical knowledge. In third world countries there is a ‘population explosion’. This has left the world’s population at over 6,800,000,000. If the population continues to grow this rapidly then it will cause many problems for the world.

Population Change

Birth Rate- This is the amount of people born per year, per thousand.

Death Rate– This is the amount of people that die per year, per thousand.

Natural change- This is the difference between the two. There will either be a natural increase or a natural decrease.
