One check to rapid population increase formerly available to European countries but not a possibility in today's developing societies was mass migration
During the last decade of the 20th century, world population increased each year by about 84 million.
The doubling time for world population at recent rates of increase is about 50 years

What are the characteristics of a national population that one can tell from its population pyramid? age structure, sex structure, dependency ratio
An expression of population pressure exerted on agricultural land is physiological density
Population projections have often been inaccurate in the past and likely will be inaccurate in the future because projections are based on assumptions about trends that may not be supported by events
