There are a range of projections for future population growth. These differ based on two key factors: the change in fertility rate and life expectancy over time. All future projections of global population Cited by: 2. The importance of population growth rate lies partly in its central role in forecasting future population trends; indeed if the form of density dependence were constant and known, then the future. A key factor affecting the growth of the population is the death, or mortality, rate. Just as the birth of new people increases the population size, deaths decrease it. The factors that affect the mortality rate include the availability and affordability of quality health care and lifestyle habits – for example, whether they smoke or do physical exercises regularly. Stated another way, as a result of equalizing health outcomes, low child mortality, and family planning, family sizes go down, and population growth slows in a predictable way. Current population trends are strong enough that by , only ~10% of the world population will be in Western nations (North America, Western Europe) — Africa will quadruple in population and Asia will increase about 25%.
The conclusion that rapid population growth has slowed development is by no means straightfor-ward or clearcut (see Box ). Under certain condi-tions moderate population growth can be benefi-cial. As Chapter 4 showed, in Europe, Japan, and North America economic growth has been accom-panied by moderate population growth, which. However, population numbers are only one aspect of human impact, and in some of the world's most vulnerable regions, significant population growth is still to be expected. Nevertheless, the prospect of an end to world population growth is welcome news Cited by: The Importance of Population Trends in Business The population of a country and its economic growth is closely interlinked with the attainment of economic development; a country must consider its human resources both from the angle of assets and liabilities. Various factors—population growth, increasing urbanization, greater demand for animal protein, greater travel and connectivity between population centers, habitat loss, climate change, and increased interactions at the human-animal interface—affect the likelihood of pandemic events by increasing either the probability of a spark event or the potential spread of a pathogen (Tilman and Clark ; Tyler Cited by: 4.
Trends in fertility and mortality rates offer insight into the health and development challenges posed by population growth, and the possible demographic scenarios of the future. Still, future scenarios will be largely determined by a number of controllable factors, including contraceptive prevalence, HIV/AIDS and other diseases, gender equity. economic production (Crenshaw et al., ), understanding the variation in the factors of population seems to be a necessity for the process of economic development. In recent decades, Asia, and especially East Asia, has been the interesting entities for the investigation of the linkage between demographic factors and economic Size: KB. Population growth is one of the major concerns of the present world as the human population is not a static factor. Rather, it is growing at a very alarming rate. In spite of the increasing world population, the resources of the earth remain constant. Thus, the ability to maintain sustainable development is becoming a major challenge to mankind. Another favorable factor is large-scale social change. The pace of the modern world is being felt even in the most backward areas, and there are accelerating trends toward industrialization, rationalization of agriculture, better health and sanitation, greater literacy and education, the freeing of women—in short.
