measure of total populaton reliative to land size
Population density expressed numerically
Physiological Population Density
The number of people per unit area of arable land
the arrangement of people on the Earth's surface

a very large, heavily populated city or urban complex.
the official count of a population
the time required for a population to double in size
The rapid growth of the world's human population during the past century, attended by ever-shorter doubling times and accelerating rates of increase
Population growth measured as the excess of live births over deaths; does not reflect either emigrant or immigrant movements
Crude Birth rate
The number of live births per year per 1,000 people.
Crude death rate
The number of deaths per year per 1,000 people.
Multistage model, based on Western Europe's experience, of changes in population growth exhibited by countries undergoing industrialization. High birth rates and death rates are followed by plunging death rates, producing a huge net population gain; this is followed by the convergence of birth rates and death rates at a low overall level
Stationary Population level
The level at which a national population ceases to grow
Structure of population in terms of age, sex and other properties such as marital status and education
Visual representations of the age and sex composition of a population whereby the percentage of each age group is represented by a horizontal bar the length of which represents its relationship to the total population.
infant mortality rate
A figure that describes the number of babies that die within the first year of their lives in a given population.
Child Mortality Rate
A figure that describes the number of children that die between the first and fifth years of their lives in a given population
life expectancy rate
A figure indicating how long, on average, a person may be expected to live
regional outbreak of a disease
An outbreak of a disease that spreads worldwide.
Generally long-lasting afflictions now more common because of higher life expectancies.
Expanisve population policies
