Alex Fong Geography - Assignment #7 Task A 1. Many of us know that the world along with everything on it didn’t magically appear, but there were steps that led to the distribution of the items. Much like, how the world population was distributed through a number of series of actions and patterns. Firstly, the earliest humans on earth travelled by feet. Judging by the way their footprints were tracked, it is even said that they travelled on bare feet. Following that, the couple reproduced and the population then began to increase. As resources began to decrease, the population began to diverge and move into different areas in order to find their necessities to survive, like food and shelter. As years and centuries pass, the population begins to grow bigger and further and that is how the world population is distributed. 2. The Demographic Transition Model is used to explain population changes relating to birth and death rates over time. It describes the high birth and death rates dropping to low birth and death rates. Two factors determine the data in the models, crude death rate and crude birth rate, both measured by the thousand. There are three stages found in a Demographic Transition Model. Stage one consisted of high death rates and high birth rates. Stage Two consisted of a dropping death rate and a fairly high birth rate was still maintained. In Stage Three, both the crude death rate and the crude birth rate remain fairly even. However, the only problem found in this type of model is that no time frame or time periods can be determined. 3.
