Population Essay In this essay I will show the population distribution in the world and some factors as as to why some regions are more densely populated such as Asia, while others are sparsely populated, such as Australia. The population distribution is uneven as more people live in certain regions rather than others. There are many factors that contribute to a sparse or dense population, for example: the hot and dry climate of the desert will lead to a sparse population as crops cannot grow in sand. Livestock need large amounts of water to survive, however in regions such as Europe, there is a very average and steady climate with flat fertile land this causes a dense population as it is easy and cheap to build on flat land, plants and crops grow easily meaning that livestock thrive. The most densely populated areas of the world include Europe and Asia. Asia is the most populated continent in the world containing over 60% of the worlds population that’s over 4 billion people, it's average yearly birth-rate is 5.7% per 1,000 the death-rate is is 10 per 1000.
