Possible Free Response Questions. Make sure you go over the FRQ 101 notes we did in class.

          The Demographic Transition Model can help explain population issues and categorize countries with
           regard to population and economics. Please explain the five stages of the model, and give an
           example of a country at each stage.

          Malthus’s theory of population was revolutionary. Do you think Malthus was correct? Why or why
           not.
          Ravenstein’s Gravity Model helped explain the trends in migrations. List and provide an example of
           each of the laws.
          How to demographers determine the Human Development Index ranking for a country? How can
           you use this to determine which stage the country falls into the model? How would the Gravity
           Model be different for each level of the Human Development Index?
Use the following questions to help you study for the test. Make sure you also study your notes,
chapter reading guides, and textbook.

expectancy, fertility rate, doubling time
