Population Studies: Population Structure, Density, and Settlements
Differences in population structures within countries can be driven by a high level of rural-urban migration, and these are evident in population pyramids. Migration from rural areas is usually from young adults (whether single or with children), which results in a decrease in the number of people in this age group. On the other hand, urban areas will see an increase in the number of young adults due to in-migration.
This GCSE Population Studies module introduces population structure, density, and settlements to your students, explaining:
- What are the reasons for and implications of variations in population structure?
- What factors influence density and distribution of population?
- Which country has a high dependent population? (Case Study of High Dependent Population in The Gambia)
- What are the main patterns of settlement?
- What are settlement hierarchies and its implications to service provision?
