  • 1. DEMOGRAPHIC ATTRIBUTES OF DEVELOPED, DEVELOPING AND 3rd WORLD COUNTRIES E. Grace Selvarani
  • 2. DEMOGRAPHY : It is the study of structure of human populations using records of the number of births, deaths, etc. ATTRIBUTE : It is a characteristic quality.
  • 3. Demographic attributes Demographic attribute is the quality of growing human populations. The growing pressure of population on resource base, especially on arable land has created many socioeconomic, cultural, political, ecological and economic problems. The population problems vary in space and time and differs from region to region. The problems may be more efficiently examined when taken as developed, developing and 3rd world countries.
  • 4. DEMOGRAPHIC ATTRIBUTES OF DEVELOPED COUNTRIES
  • 5. DEMOGRAPHIC ATTRIBUTES OF DEVELOPED COUNTRIES Developed countries are highly industrialized and urbanized. In these countries, the per capita income is not only high, most of their population is dependant either on secondary or tertiary sector. These countries, despite high degree of development. Efficient agriculture and large-scale industrial production are also confronted with many of the population problems.
  • 6. FEW MAJOR POPULATION PROBLEMS OF DEVELOPED COUNTRIES are, Long span of life Small workforce Rural population Urbanization
  • 7. DEMOGRAPHIC ATTRIBUTES OF DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
  • 8. DEMOGRAPHIC ATTRIBUTES OF DEVELOPING COUNTRIES Most of the world population lives in the developing world. The developing countries have over three-fourth of the total world population (China and India supports over 23% and 17.6% of the total worlds population respectively). The level of technological development is relatively low in there countries which affects both agricultural efficiency and industrial development despite the availability of local resources.
  • 9. FEW MAJOR POPULATION PROBLEMS OF DEVELOPING COUNTRIES are, Rapid growth of population Unemployment Poor standard of living Malnutrition Management of agricultural resources Slow growth of Industrial sector Orthodoxy Problems of under population
  • 10. THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES
  • 11. Third World country is not a country that simply is primitive, underdeveloped, or poor, as most people think. In fact, a third world country is actually just a country that is not considered a capitalist country (first world) and not considered a communist country (2nd world). This term was originally coined just after WWII. The third world countries were just everybody else. This everybody else included an awful lot of countries that were underdeveloped or poor. Through time, this has given rise to the misconception that third world means only countries that are underdeveloped and poor, even though there were, and still are, many countries in this group that are very well developed and a few of them are among the wealthiest nations in the world. Over the last few years, the term, Third World has become less preferred.
  • 12. CONCLUSION Thus both Developed and Developing countries have many population related problems in common like urbanization all around leading to a shortage in providing food to the growing population. Some have a better resource base and a smaller population as, Argentina, Brazil, Malaysia and Mexico. Some areas are with weak resource and large population with rigid traditional ideas and orthodoxy like Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia and Pakistan. Through the study of Demographic Attributes, we could hope the best in the future by handling the available resource in each region in a sustainable manner by planning and implementing new sustaining methodologies.
