Projections for the global population in 2050
Each Country's Population compared with the World Population
The world population grew from 1 billion to 7 billion from 1800
. It took over 200,000 years of human
history for the world's population to reach 1 billion, and only 200 years
more to reach 7 billion. In1960 the world Population was 3,039,451,023.
In 2011 it is estimated that 135 million people were born and 57
million died, for an increase in population of 78 million.
At the beginning of the 19 century there were only 12 cities in
the world that had over a million people, in 2013, there is over
500 cities in the world with more than a million people. Half
the worlds population lives in large cities, and if you combined all the
large cities in the world, it would cover an area half the size of
Australia. Human Population Through Time

includes delayed sexual maturation (puberty) or inhibition of sexual

is a sequence of numbers where each

is time it takes for a population to double in
size/value. It is applied to population growth, inflation, resource
extraction, consumption of goods, compound interest, the volume of
malignant tumours, and many other things that tend to grow over time. When
the relative growth rate (not the absolute growth rate) is constant, the
quantity undergoes exponential growth and has a constant doubling time or
period, which can be calculated directly from the growth rate. This time
can be calculated by dividing the natural logarithm of 2 by the exponent
of growth, or approximated by dividing 70 by the percentage growth rate
(more roughly but roundly, dividing 72; see the rule of 72 for details and
a derivation of this formula). The doubling time is a characteristic unit
(a natural unit of scale) for the exponential growth equation, and its
converse for exponential decay is the half-life. For example, given
Canada's net population growth of 0.9% in the year 2006, dividing 70 by
0.9 gives an approximate doubling time of 78 years. Thus if the growth
rate remains constant, Canada's population would double from its 2006
figure of 33 million to 66 million by 2084.
Net Reproduction Rate
is the average number of offspring (often
specifically daughters) that would be born to a female if she passed
through her lifetime conforming to the age-specific fertility and
mortality rates of a given year.
Total Fertility Rate
of a population is the average number of children
that would be born to a woman over her lifetime if: She was to experience
the exact current age-specific fertility rates (ASFRs) through her
lifetime, and She was to survive from birth to the end of her reproductive
life. It is obtained by summing the single-year age-specific rates at a

long as every person was fully educated that is. But because we
have so many undereducated people at all levels of society, from
the very poor to the very rich, we will always suffer from the
ignorance that comes from having undereducated people. When
people don't have the right knowledge and information that's

Adolescents aged 10–24 years have the poorest health-care coverage of any

preventable and treatable health problems like HIV/AIDS, early pregnancy,
unsafe sex, depression, injury, and violence remain a daily threat to

per 1,000 population
divided by the length of the period in years. The number of live births is
normally taken from a universal registration system for births; population
counts from a census, and estimation through specialized demographic
techniques. The birth rate (along with mortality and migration rates) is
used to calculate population growth. The estimated average population may
be taken as the mid-year population. Another term used interchangeably
with birth rate is natality
, which is the
of the number of births to the size of
the population or birth rate. When the crude death rate is subtracted from
the crude birth rate, the result is the rate of natural increase (RNI).
This is equal to the rate of population change (excluding migration). The
total (crude) birth rate (which includes all births)—typically indicated
as births per 1,000 population—is distinguished from a set of age-specific
rates (the number of births per 1,000 persons, or more usually 1,000
females, in each age group). The first known use of the term "birth rate"

Bias in Research

is a research tool in which a
subject is observed in its natural
habitat without any manipulation
by the observer. During
naturalistic observation researchers take great care to avoid
interfering with the behavior they are observing by using
unobtrusive methods. Naturalistic observation involves two main
differences that set it apart
from other forms of data gathering. In the context of a
naturalistic observation the environment is in no way being
manipulated by the observer nor was it created by the observer.
People watching is not to be confused with naturalistic
observation. Naturalistic observation is used for scientific
purposes. It uses the same techniques as people watching. The
key is to not let anyone know that you are observing him or her.
People are in their natural environment, so there is
for them to behave a certain way
, as they would feel if they
knew they were being studied. Scientists often are fond of this
method because people are acting naturally and not acting how
they are expected to act. Naturalistic observation as a research tool comes with both
advantages and disadvantages that impact its application. By
merely observing a given instance without any manipulation in
its natural context it makes the behaviors exhibited more
credible because they are occurring in a real typical scenario
as opposed to an artificial one generated within a lab.
Naturalistic observation also allows for study of events that it
is deemed unethical to study via experimental models, such as
the impact of high school shootings on students attending the
a research tool by which a subject is observed in an artificial
. Typically, types of settings in which analog
observation is utilized include clinical offices or research
laboratories, but, by definition, analog observations can be
made in any artificial environment, even if the environment is
one which the subject is likely to encounter naturally. Analog
observation is typically divided into two iteration of
application: The first iteration primarily studies the effect of
manipulation of variables in the subject's environment,
including setting and events, on the subject's behavior. The
second iteration primarily seeks to observe the subject's
behavior in quasi-experimental social situations.
