o Pop geo study of the human pop with respect to size, composition, spatial distribution,
and the changes that occur in the pop over time
o Altered by 3 basic processes birth, death, and migration
- People in the field look at it as demography
- Problem with statistical analysis does not help us to look at a basic phenomenon
- Demography with its roots in the analysis of mortality and fertility statistics, is the statistical
analysis of population (quantitative approach), while population studies is often used to
describe other approaches t looking at population issues, including non-statistical approaches
(qualitative approach) population geography is the geographical study of population
- Populations are governed by various laws we are all born, age, and must ultimately die
during which significant changes occur in the composition of the population around us
- Eg: govt are interested in various aspects of the structure of their populations: what percentage
are over sixty? What proportion can vote? What proportion is less than fifteen years old? How
many move and who moves/ changes residential location or moves nationally or internationally
in a year? What is the ethnic or racial composition of an area?
- Pop analysis is also important to school boards, universities, retailers, intl bodies such as the UN
and the UNHCR, and so on
