In the Uk it is one of the most densely populated parts of the world as it has 60,000,000 people in it and it is one of the smallest countries in the world. In china it is a rather big country and is the most populated country in the world so the density is about the same because its about the amount of people their are to the size of the land.

But in Green land it is very undensly populated because even though the country is about 10 times bigger than the Uk it still has less people in it about 60 million less people.

The Western Sahara is quite small but is the least populated country in the world and has about 100 times less people in it than Albania and the Western Sahara is about 10 times bigger.

(i was the first person to do the home work :) can i have a stamp or something like that ;)

a. The most densely populated areas of the world are Europe, India and Indonesia. I have compared landsize of countries and population to make this conclusion.

b. Two countrys where population Density is low are Nauru (east of Papa new Guinea) has got a small population of 14,109 which is a small island in the Pacific ocean,and Cyprus (south of Turkey) has got a small population of 796,479 an island in the mediteranean sea.

Countrys which have a low density of low population tend to be inremote places where living is hard.

a)The most densely populated places in the world are China, India and USA. Although these are the most densely populated it definitely doesn't mean its the most spread out.

b)Two countrys where population density is low is the Falkland islands, which is just east of Argentina, with only a population of 3,151. also the solomon islands have a very low population with a population of 595,968.

Some of the worlds most densly populated areas include India,Indonesia and Monaco. This dosent necessarily mean they are the most populated areas, but the most densly populated areas. This means that there are alot of people living tightly packed in one country.

Two countries where the population density is low is Guyana and Iceland. Guyana population is 765,300 and Icelands population is 296,700.

Thanks for your comments so far. We will discuss them in the next lesson.

Tips:
1. Make sure you can spell 'Countries' correctly.
2. Ensure you know the difference between the terms 'Dense' and 'Sparse'.
3. Can you suggest reasons for why these countries are 'densely' or 'sparsely' populated?

1. the most densely populated countries are china and india because they are so dense.
2. one sparse country is antartica because its to cold to live there. one other sparse country is australia because its to hot.

The Biggest populated countries are India and China. The Uk is also densly populated for the size of the country. However China Is a large country and is densly populated so there is a better distirbution in China than in Uk because everyone is crowded into a small country.

Somewhere like Argentina is a small counrty and is sparsly populated- meaninng the people are spread out.

The most densely populated countries are china and india. Also the united states and the uk.

Places like finland and sweeden are sparsly populated therefore the people are quite spread out.

The biggest populated countries are China, India and the USA. Also the UK. There is better distirbution in China than the UK due to the fact its a much larger country and the UK is much smaller so all the people are squished into a smaller country.

Places like Argentina and Antarctica are sparesly populated; the people are spread out, as there quite cold places to live. Also places like off the coasts of spain or Australia they're sparsley populated due to the fact they're very hot places to live.

People usually prefer Temperate climate which is why the UK is very densly populated.

China - 1,339,330,704
Brazil - 198,881,102
These Countries are densley poopulated, China has people spread out across the whole of its counrty compared to Brazil where it is more populated around the cost.

Panama - 3,364,923
Belize - 308,219
Both of these countries are sparsley populated as you can see by the number of people living in the country. Belize has a very low population but is gradualy growing as on average 5 people are born every 1 person who dies.

Population is an ever changing situation considering that the birth rate or death rate statistics change on a yearly rate. China has been the first country to step up and say that their population is out of control with over a billion people living in China. Considering that the UK is one of the biggest economies in the world and still maintains a small population.

Which has just recently hit the 60 million barrier thanks to immigration.

The Birth control has now been put in place with two countries who are overpopulated. With only 1 child per family.

The most desely populated countries are
-China(1,339,332,057) and
India(1,166,980,628).
Distribution in china is better than it is in India as China is a more bigger country and so can carry such a big population.

The coropleth map shows that although the USA is huge, China and India have the most people living there, and is much more densly populated. but in Africa such as Somalia, the death rate is quite big, so the amount of people living there is very small.

the most densely populated countries are india, indonesia and the UK.these aren't the biggest countries but are very densely populated because of the temperate climate. Places like iceland and greenland are very sparsely populated.

The most densley populated places are China and India because they both have over 1 billion people.

The population is so low in Antarctica because it has such extreame cold conditions. The amozon rainforest is so sparsely populated because there is such dense forest its hard to live there

Most populated areas are china and india. In china they are trying to control population by china's one child policy. Big populated areas also are UK and USA.

Places like Antarctica are sparesly because it is very cold there.
