DUE BEFORE LAB SESSION ON SEPT 16/17/18. Submit assignment to Digital Dropbox in Blackboard.
Population below is in millions… 1,000 million = 1 billion
The site below has a population clock which provides estimates of the
current population. For example, when I checked the estimate last Friday
Sept 6, it was 6,721,660,410. By the time you check it will be higher to
reflect the increase in population during the past several days. Obviously
this I just an estimate based on the current population growth trend.
Current world population growth rate is about 1.14% per year
The rate of growth peaked in 1963 when it stood at about 2.19% a year.
Check the population clock at the above site and record the figure that you
see for current population. Then use the current growth rate to estimate
what the world population will be a year from now assuming that the
growth rate per year is 1.14%
Current world population
population a year from
Q1b. Estimated population a year from now if the growth rate was
2.19% as in 1963
This is a simple prediction…we assume the current growth rate will
continue into the future and our estimate is based on that belief.
For the questions below, refer to your copy of the STAS2126 Survey that you completed.
Are you male or female? (Q1)
What program are you in? (Q2)
What is your birth order? (Q3)
What is your age? (Q4)
What is your marital status? (Q5)

All things considered, how religious would you say you are? (Q12)
Where do you stand on global warming? (Q16)
I could be happy even if I did not have a lot money (Q23)
What about population growth rate as discussed above…assume
growth rates of 1%, 2%, 3%, 4%, and 5%.
...would this be
considered an equal interval measure (see notes if necessary)?
Explain your answer.
