Use My World GIS to examine the relationships between life expectancy, infant mortality rate, fertility rate, illiteracy rate, per capita income, and population growth.
**Requires My World GIS License.
Students examine the relationships between life expectancy, infant mortality rate, fertility rate, illiteracy rate, per capita income, and population growth. They use this information to:
- Analyze current and future problems related to population dynamics in various countries.
- Estimate the future world population.
Students analyze global data about population growth and the factors that influence it using databases in My World GIS. Additionally, students:
- Prepare scatterplots and assess correlations.
- Use key indicators of population changes, formulas, and the spreadsheet automatic fill capability to create a spreadsheet showing predicted increases in world population.
Sensors / Equipment Used:
