It shows that during 1901 to 1951, the population grew at 12.27 crore in 50 years with 51.46 per cent growth rate. The decadal growth is 5.75% in 1911, 0.31 in 1921, 11% in 1931, 14.22% in 1941 and 13.31% in 1951. This period may be termed as idle growth. During 1961 to 2011 (the next 50 years), the population increased by 77.10 crore with 181.39% growth rate which is on very higher side. It was surprising that decadal growth of population increased from 13.31% in 1951 to 21.64% in 1961, 24.80% in 1971, 24.66% in 1981, 23.87% in 1991, 21.54% in 2001 and 17.64% in 2011.
In the 1901 census, only 10.8 per cent of the total popu¬lation (or 25.6 million out of 238 million) lived in cities. In 1991, this had gone up to 25.73 per cent; and by 2001, nearly 35 per cent (or about 350 million of the estimated one billion populations) will be urban residents. • This means that in coming two years, there will be 37 cities with a popu¬lation between one and ten million. Mumbai, Delhi and Calcutta will have more than 14 million people each. One factor which has contributed relatively much to the increase in urban population is industrialization.
Do The Disadvantages Of Urbanization Outweigh The Benefits Of It? Introduction Urbanization refers to the increase in trend of people moving from rural or under developed areas to more developed areas. This trend has experienced a dramatic rise in the past few decades. The report issued by the United Nations in 2015 supports this claim by suggesting that globally, more people are moving towards urban areas. In 1950, 30 percent of the world’s population was residing in urban areas while in 2014, 54 percent of the world’s population was urban, and by 2050, 66 per cent of the world’s population is projected to be urban.
In the early twentieth century, in 1900, the world population is estimated at 1.613 billion people.This is already a significant (increase, burst) speed of population growth. But this one became excessive with the demographic upsurge that humanity will live in the twentieth century. In
First and foremost, the population involved in urbanization will be examined. The growth of urban population in less developed region (LDR) is much higher than more developed region (MDR). According to the United Nations (2005), in the thirty largest urban agglomerations among the world, nineteen of them are MDR at 1950; while at 1980, only ten cities in the MDR remained in the list. At 2005, only seven cities in the MDR left on the list. One of the reasons for the rapid increase in urban population in LDR is natural increase.
This directly lead to the expansion of California. The expansion of California was the most important aspect of this remarkable moment in history. In just two years, the population increased by tens of thousands. This generous amount of people increased the poplulation of San Francisco and neighboring cities by an extraordinary amount. What most people do not know is that this amount of people is over 40,000.
Often when we talk about Population growth we refer to the increase of number of people who reside in a country. In order to determine growth rate in a country we use the following formula to calculate :( birth rate + immigration) – (death rate + emigration). Usually investors use this information to determine if it is worth to invest in the certain region or country. http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/population-growth.html (Image taken from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Population_growth) The above picture shows that in 1990 and 2010 China have been ranking 1st in the countries with as much as 1,341,335,000 in 2010. The global population has grown from 1 billion in 1800 to 7 billion in 2012.
After 45 years, South Korea’s GDP per capita had increased more than twelve-fold to more than US$13 000 in 2005 since government run industrialization started in the early 1960s. Furthermore, its GDP per capita increased from US$67 in 1953 to US$20 050 in 2007
In 2014, with 54 per cent of the world’s population, more people live in cities than in rural areas. According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) (2014) estimations, by 2050, two thirds of the world’s population will be residing in cities – around five billion people. Africa and Asia are the two regions with the highest growth rates of urbanization; it is projected that the urban population in these two regions will increase by 2.25 billion people by 2030, representing 90 per cent of the total projected increase of the world’s urban population. Since 1990, the number of mega-cities that host more than 10 million inhabitants has nearly tripled, and by 2030, there will be 41 of them, the majority in the Global
Nowadays, UNWTO tries to develop a more sustainable and ethical tourism, as well as promoting developing countries. 1.1. Growing important of tourism in our global economy According to UNWTO, in 1950, there were 25 million international tourist arrivals. This figure rose to 285 million in 1980, then 900 million in 2007. And since then, international tourism has been multiplied by 50 compared to 1950, and has reached 1,186 million tourist arrivals in 2015.
