5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. birth rate
  2. logistic growth curve
  3. population
  4. age structure
  5. logistic carrying capacity
  1. a a group of individuals of the same species living in the same area or interbreeding and sharing genetic information
  2. b the rate at which births occur in a population, measured either as the number of individuals born per unit of time or as the percentage of births per unit of time compared with the total population
  3. c structure of a population divided into groups by age. Sometimes the groups represent the actual number of each age in the population; sometimes the group represents the percentage or proportion of the population of each age
  4. d In terms of the logistic curve, the population size at which births equal deaths and there is no net change in the population
  5. e The S-shaped growth curve that is generated by the logistic growth equation. In the logistic, a small population grows rapidly, but the growth rate slows down, and the population eventually reaches a constant size

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. fertility rate required for a population to remain a constant level
  2. the study of populations, especially their patterns in space and time
  3. The general study of population changes
  4. The pattern of change in birth and death rates as a country is transformed from undeveloped to developed. THere are three stages: (1) in an undeveloped country, birth and death rates are high and the growth rate is low; (2) the death rate decreases, but the birth rate remains high and the growth rate is high; (3) the birth rate drops toward the death rate and the growth and the growth rate therefore also decreases
  5. the ratio of dependent-age people (those unable to work) to working-age people; it is customary to define workin-age people as those aged 15-65

5 True/False questions

  1. population age structurestructure of a population divided into groups by age. Sometimes the groups represent the actual number of each age in the population; sometimes the group represents the percentage or proportion of the population of each age

          

  2. death ratethe rate at which births occur in a population, measured either as the number of individuals born per unit of time or as the percentage of births per unit of time compared with the total population

          

  3. epidemic diseasea disease that appears occasionally in the population, affects a large percentage of it, and declines or almost disappears for a while only to reappear later

          

  4. growth ratethe rate at which births occur in a population, measured either as the number of individuals born per unit of time or as the percentage of births per unit of time compared with the total population

          

  5. abortion ratiothe estimated number of abortions per 1000 women aged 15 to 44 in a given year
