Allison Cox #8698037 Econ 114 2/3/09 1. The maximum population growth rate is 0.043903563. The minimum population growth rate is -0.005456339. The variation in the population growth has narrow range on average but over time there could be significance differences. Many factors can affect the population growth like cultural or GDP growth. 2.Overall, there seems to be a distinct connection but not a perfect one between low life expectancy and higher population growth and vice versa. But there is many points that have a higher growth rate and high life expectancy, showing that population growth has more factors that effect it other then survival rate. 3. There is a definite positive correlation between fertility and population growth showing that having more children can cause population growth. -0.01 0 0.01 0.02 0.03 0.04 0.05 0.00 20.00 40.00 60.00 80.00 100.00 Life Expectancy -0.01 0 0.01 0.02 0.03 0.04 0.05 0 2 4 6 8 10 Total Fertility Rate

Unformatted text preview: 4. From the graphs, countries have a high population growth due to higher fertility rates and possibly the factor of life expectancy meaning that it is possible that mortality is decreasing and the fertility rate remains constant actually causing the population to increase. 5. The Solow model suggests that population growth effects capital per capita and therefore income per capita by decreasing both as population grows. The model suggests that rich countries have more capital so in order to follow the model one must conclude t that rich countries have a lower population growth. If this is true countries with a higher population growth will have a lower growth of income per capita. This graph does not clearly show that correlation.-0.01 0.01 0.02 0.03 0.04 0.05-6.00-4.00-2.00 0.00 2.00 4.00 6.00 8.00 Growth rate of real GDP per capita...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
