World Population by the Numbers

The world has changed since the 1950’s.  This Economist  feature, The Size of It,  shows the numbers.

Critical Questions:

1. How have things like demographics, population distribution, and median age of the world change?

2. How will demographic changes affect the world?

Consider:

  • Allocation of resources?
  • Conflict
  • Geopolitics
  • The environment
  • Our day-to-day living
