Consider the following statements and select the correct answer from the codes given below:
Assertion (A): The growth rate of population in developing
countries is higher than that of developed
Reason (R): Low level of economic development leads to high
total fertility rate.
The demographic transition model was propounded by
The demographic transition model was propounded by F.W. Notestion.
Frank Wallace Notestein (August 16, 1902 – February 19, 1983) was an American demographer who contributed significantly to the development of science.
He was the founding director of the Office of Population Research at Princeton University, and later president of the Population Council. He was also the first director of the Population Division of the United Nations, 1946–1948.
Currently half of the world’s population lives in just six countries. Identify them from the following.
Why South-East Asia has the largest concentration of peasant population at the global scale?
The term, ‘intensive subsistence agriculture’ is used to describe a type of agriculture characterised by high output per unit of land and relatively low output per worker.
Sometimes it is also known as ‘monsoon type of agriculture’. It is found in China, Japan, Korea, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, the greater part of continental South- East Asia. This is why the largest population of peasants is found in this area.
The most populated desert in the world is
When 0-14 and 15-44 age groups population of a country of a country is almost identical, the growth of population would be called—
The continents with the highest and the lowest density of population are respectively
Consider the following statements and select the correct answer from the codes given:
Assertion (A): China is the most populous country of the world.
Reason (R): Its density of population is much lower than that of India.
Arrange the following countries of South Asia in descending order of their population density and use the codes to select the correct answer:
Which of the following is/are the stage(s) of demographic transition?
1. High death rate and birth rate, low growth rate.
2. Rapid decline in death rate, continued low birth rate, very low growth rate.
3. Rapid decline in birth rate, continued decline in death rate
4. Low death rate and birth rate, low growth rate.
Select the correct answer using the codes given below
Demographic transition (DT) refers to the transition from high birth and death rates to lower birth and death rates as a country or region develops from a pre-industrial to an industrialized economic system.
The theory was proposed in 1929 by the American demographer Warren Thompson, who observed changes, or transitions, in birth and death rates in industrialized societies over the previous 200 years.
Most developed countries have completed the demographic transition and have low birth rates; most developing countries are in the process of this transition.
