World Population Interactive map.

Copy the following link into your browser and spend sometime exploring the world map( Don't neglect trying all the variables that are shown on the top line of the world map. This exercise should help clarify the world population distribution and some of its related demographic factors.

This world population map is very interesting and informative. It came as a surprise to see the future population and the natural increase for Africa. I constantly hear about the overpopulation issue within Africa but it is a different thing to see the numbers compared to every other part of the world. To know how underdeveloped parts of this continent are and see the 2050 estimate is astonishing to say the least.

I think that it's interesting to note how everything is intertwined. The HIV/AIDS rates in each country strongly correlates with the death rates, along with the wealth. It makes you think about how lucky we are to live in a country with a readily available source of medicine.

At the same time, it's interesting to see how fast population can increase, even with a high death rate and a low life expectancy rate. When you click on expected population in 2050 for Africa for example, everything suddenly lights up and almost the whole continent becomes a shade darker.

But, how much more growth can we let happen? Unfortunately, I don't think that the earth can afford to have a whole continent light up like that without having some sort of serious consequence.

I spent a lot of time exploring this world map and still can't comprehend all of it. I can’t even imagine the amount of time and research and effort that went into creating a map such as this. I think the most important part is the ability for users to have the choice to view the different variables in a table form as well as the map form. It’s one thing to read a graphic table with large population numbers but it is a whole different animal to visually see those numbers sprawled out across an actual world map. The color coated visual map effect makes the population estimate for 2050 seem much more dramatic and is more beneficial in creating awareness for the future problems we may be facing.

This map pretty much confirms that the life expectancy, birth/death rates, aids/hiv, and population projection are all immediately tied to the average income of its citizens. Even though this does not address all of the factors of I-PAT it still shows strong evidence of this being correct. Affluence is one of the biggest factors when it comes to I-PAT and with this map we see that affluence also contributes to a myriad of other factors that influence the population and health of a country. This map is very informative but it just confirms the major point that we all know; the world is over-populated.

I think the most important factor to note on this map is the fact that much of the population growth that will take place will be in developing countries in South America and Africa; this map shows how economic standards and conditions in a country are disproportionate to population growth. As a country has become developed, the population becomes more stable. Most countries in the western world will see little to no population change in the next 50 years. Because population growth is mostly concentrated in the developing world, it will be extremely important for these countries to develop basic human needs in a sustainable manner.

The interactive world map was extremely interesting. It helped solidify the points we went over during our class periods. It was very interesting to me that Africa, especially Middle Africa, will experience the highest rate of natural increase. This supports the idea that under developed nations are the ones who experience the most uncontrolled population growth.
The western world will experience very little growth while the northern European nations will experience a decrease in population.

This map was very interesting to me and in a way startled me a bit. It is scary to think that population will increase in countries that realistically cannot support the amount of people it's predicted to have. I also found it interesting to see the total contraceptive rate in the world. The amount of people taking contraceptive in the U.S. compared to areas in Africa is shocking. One simple solution to preventing an increase in population would be treating people family planning and unfortunately a great deal of people do not have access to this type of help. Hopefully we can work towards preventing the increase of population in the future.

The world population map is very interesting and eye opening. I found the life expectancy tab especially interesting. It was interesting because the ages were so low. The oldest age I saw was around 80 in Europe. It just goes to show how much we need to start focusing on the issue of population control.

I really love this website. It is amazing and very interesting how so many more smaller countries will be at 50+ in 2050 but if you look in the "natural increase" map, the bigger countries will be at around 0.99% or even DECREASE.

The interactive map on world population that has data about years 2013 and 2050 (estimate) shows that certain regions of the world will get more crowded in the world in the few decades to come, while some others will stay the same in terms of population or will lose population. When we look at the regions, it seems that Europe (both Eastern and Western Europe), Northern America will lose population or stay the same compared to 2013 data, while Africa, Australia, Asia will have larger populations, with the exception that the rise in China (currently the world's most crowded country) will be less than many of its neighbours in Asia. Among the regions whose population will go up significantly, Middle and southern countries of Africa seem to have a leading role in terms of population increase in the decades to come. The points depict that African countries will have more human resources in terms of young people in the near future. If they can manage to give adequate education opportunities to their young people, then there is no reason not to see Africa as the emerging continent in the 21st century. Similarly, population losing regions (i.e. Europe, Russia and Northern America to some extent) could lose parts of the leading roles they have in global terms as of 2050.
