First, review of ‘Schooling the World’ from last lesson.

The United Nations’ Human Development Index and its components, and the Population Data Sheet (from Population Reference Bureau) are two major sources of demographic data.

Looking at both, what are some of the major factors that each measures?

Why might 3 factors from each of these be important?

How might ‘development’ be measured – what factors could be compared with previous years?

What else might you like to know to measure a country’s ‘development’?
