Introduction

Why some areas of the world are densely populated and others are sparsely populated. The worlds population within the last 250years, has gone from 675 million in 1750.Where now the population is at least 6 billion. But the population is not spread over the world evenly. Some places there is a very high density and other places have a very low density. This is because of work, climate, resources and many other reasons. So in this essay I am going to explain what the causes of population density are and what we can do about it. The main reason for world's population changes is the change in birth and death rates. When birth rates are higher than death rates the population of an area will increase. ...read more.

This map below shows population density. The darker the colour the greater the population density. The map above shows that world population is unevenly spread. Some areas have a high population density while others have a low population density. Areas of high population density tend to be places with weather that's not to hot, wet or cold. Also places with easy communications, also that have flat land, are rich, fertile soil, developed and ideal for farming, and on all of them reasons it also coursed migration into or out of the population. If you compare somewhere like London, which is a rich developed area to somewhere like the Amazon Forest. There is a big population size difference. ...read more.

Conclusion

Areas like the the Sahara deserts have a low population because of it climate which is too dry and hot for people to live in, and makes communications difficult. Himalaya Mountains also have less population because of the cold climate. As the years go on i think the population will carry on increasing rapidly . There are several reasons that we can do to Change the Low density around the world for example introducing more education so more migrants can come into different counties. Sharing out the rescores instead of keeping them all in one place that will attract people to different areas and help stop migration. But places with conditions that are so bad that you can't live in will never be changed and those places will always have a low density and stay a poor undeveloped counties. ...read more.
