The number of people sharing Earth and its resources is getting bigger and bigger by the minute. Some scientists project that the human population may increase to more than 9 billion people by 2050, while others project that it could reach 10.5 billion people by then! That’s a lot of people – and a big difference in projections. This unit focuses on how fertility rate, age structure, sex ratios, the demographic transition and social factors help demographers predict population growth.
