Population Studies: Population Dynamics

Demographers have estimated that the world’s population reached one billion during the 1800s. In the next page, the graph shows the number of years it took before each subsequent billion was reached. Based on the said graph, there is a decreasing trend in terms of the time taken for the population to reach the billionth mark. At present, we are at the seven billion mark - which was reached in 2011. It is projected that by the year 2023, the Earth will be inhabited by eight billion people.

This ​GCSE Population Studies module introduces population dynamics to your students, explaining:

  • ​What are the causes of rapid increase in the world’s population?
  • What are the causes and consequences of overpopulation and underpopulation?
  • What caused the population size to change?
  • Which countries are experiencing rising population growth?
  • To what extent population policies are effective in managing a country’s population?
