Population Density Comparism

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Question for homework. Write an analysis of population density in one state of India. Account for patterns and areas of high/low density. Discuss urban/rural population, people per household and BR/DR/FR/IMR etc. Ans: In this case study I will be looking at one state , that is Punjab, and compare the differences of the population density between two districts, one rural and one urban, within that state, I will do this by looking at the birth rate, death rate fertility rate and infant mortality rate etc. And examining the fact and analysing them which led to the differences. In Jalandhar, the rural district, we see that the population is 1,962,700. In Amritsar, the urban district, the population is 3,096,077. The population is much larger in Amritsar, and we can say that Amritsar is a more urbanised area in Punjab. This is because the government have spent much money to develop the area as it's a major city of tourism due to the location of the golden temple. ...read more.

Middle

term 'high birth rate, low birth rate, high death rate, low death rate' according to how many people were in each age group. Now in Amritsar we see that the birth rate is quite high, this is because within the age group 0 - 4 we see that the population is 286,056. This tells us that the birth rate will be high and also the infant mortality rate will be quite low since the population of children is high. Now looking at the rest of the age groups we see that the population is still quite high and this leads us to assuming that the death rate must be quite low as the population of the age groups does not decrease by a great amount. Also as we can see the number of people which live beyond 60 years is 283,409 this number is quite high and therefore we can say that the life expectancy is also high. To conclude this we can say as Amritsar is an urban city the medical facility is high and this is proved by the high number of population. ...read more.

Conclusion

Red region = Very Densely populated Blue region= Densely populated Green region= Moderately densely populated Yellow region= Low dense population Here looking in this map above we see the population density of the entire district in Punjab. As we know Amritsar is very densely populated, proof of this is shown on the map. And for Jalandhar we knew that it was quite densely populated, this is also shown on the map. Reason for Amritsar population density: Physical Factors: * Nice climate, no extreme temperature * Flat land Human Factors: * Location next to Golden Temple, therefore historic landmark * Good transport links all over Punjab lead there * Next to Pakistan border * Government incentive Reason for Jalandhar population density: Physical factors: * Flat land and fertile soil * Good climate all year round * Location of some valuable resources Human factors: * Good job opportunities in some areas( where mills are located) * Main exports of agricultural good come from here. P.T.O Summary: ...read more.
