      BE ABLE TO
       map major and emerging population concentrations and describe demographic characteristics of each.

         calculate arithmetic, agricultural, and physiological densities, and describe the strengths and
          weaknesses of each for demographic analysis.

         calculate doubling time and dependency ratios and describe how dependency ratios are interpreted.

         explain the elements of a population pyramid and distinguish between characteristic shapes.

         explain the demographic transition model:
              What are its components?
              What are some example countries that it describes in each phase?
              Why might it NOT predict the future for developing countries today?

         explain changes – or potential changes – and the implications of each for a country’s population:
              changes in epidemiology
              changes and age distributions and gender ratios
              issues of overpopulation

         give examples of pro- and anti-natalist policies and their effects in example countries.

         define key demographic terms and identify regions in which high and low extreme examples of each
          can be found.

         Identify and discuss the difference between expansive, eugenic, and restrictive population policies
