5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. logistic growth curve
  2. abortion rate
  3. death rate
  4. maximum lifetime
  5. abortion ratio
  1. a 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
  2. b the estimated number of abortions per 1000 live births in a given year
  3. c The rate at which deaths occur in a population, measured either as the number of individuals dying per unit time or as the percentage of a population dying per unit time
  4. d genetically determined maximum possible age to which an individual of a species can live
  5. e the estimated number of abortions per 1000 women aged 15 to 44 in a given year

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. 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
  2. the maximum number of human beings which can live on Earth at the same time; is dependent on the quality of life people desire and are willing to accept
  3. 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
  4. In terms of the logistic curve, the population size at which births equal deaths and there is no net change in the population
  5. the continued growth of a population that occurrs after achievement of replacement level fertility is reached

5 True/False questions

  1. populationa group of individuals of the same species living in the same area or interbreeding and sharing genetic information

          

  2. demographythe study of populations, especially their patterns in space and time

          

  3. zero population growtha population in which the number of births equals the number of deaths so that there is no net change in the size of the population

          

  4. chronica group of individuals capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring

          

  5. age dependency ratiothe 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
