Population & Growth

Population and Migration Chapter 2 - Population and Growth

Thomas Malthus concluded that the rate of population was growing at a faster rate than agriculture productivity
Thomas Malthus coined the term overpopulation
Thomas Malthus economist
Economics deals with the scarcity of resources
Malthus - World Population growing at an exponential rate
Malthus - Agricultutral Productivity growing at a linear rate
Thomas Malthus wrote On Population
Linear Growth growth that occurs evenly across each unit of time
Exponential Growth looks at growth as a percentage of the total population
Neo-Malthusian view point is theoretical, not necessarily a demographic fact
Neo-Malthusian if there are multiple minority groups and no majority group within the popluation set, the growth rate will eventually resemble the rate of growth of the fastest growing group within that set
Neo-Malthusian suggests that in a society tending toward the growth of the fastest growing group, the crude birth rate and fertility rate will continue to inch upwards
Neo-Malthusian the fastest growing group will eventually become a majority of the population
Neo-Malthusian and the Demographic Transition Model goes against it in the beleif that the United Sates is ripe for exponential growth again because of its immigrant communities
