Population growth rate = 1. 2% (1. 13% in 2015) per year. Beyond simple growth, the key issues are: differential (unequal) population growth. ~10% of births in more developed world: the consequences of this growth: Concentrated population (examples: north america, as in the united states) Recall: the (cid:449)orld is di(cid:448)ided i(cid:374)to (cid:862)ha(cid:448)es(cid:863) a(cid:374)d (cid:862)ha(cid:448)e (cid:374)ots(cid:863) (cid:449)ith respe(cid:272)t to e(cid:272)o(cid:374)o(cid:373)i(cid:272) a(cid:374)d so(cid:272)ial development.

Arithmetic (crude): # of people per unit area of land.
