37. How popular? A country’s population refers to the total number of people that are living there. China is the most populated country in the world. There are over 1.3 billion people living there. With a population of just over 11,000 , Tuvalu is one of the least populated countries in the world. What do you think the population of Singapore is?
44. Population structure MEDCs and LEDCs usually have differently structured populations due to differences in their birth and death rates. This shows the total population of males and females in different age ranges. The population structure of a country is usually drawn on a graph called a population pyramid . How would you describe the structure of this population pyramid?

Worksheet: The worksheet A Growing Population accompanies this slide.
Teacher’s note: This population pyramid has quite a wide base. There is a very rapid narrowing of the sides of the pyramid and there is a very small percentage of the population who live to an old age. There appears to be a pronounced difference between the number of females and males surviving in this country. This could be due to ongoing wars. This is a population pyramid for an LEDC.
