It's a simple enough question, just "explain why the population density of an area may change over time".

its a five mark question and I can only think of two reasons!


  1. People may migrate due to a wider range of choices such as education and job opportunities
  2. changes in the level of technology and resources increase the number of people in the area

Can anyone think of 3 mo

Population density is population/area. As area doesn't really change, changes in population density are brought about by changes in population itself.

Changes in population are due to changes in birth rate, death rate, inward migration and outward migration. You mention migration, but think about things like better healthcare leading to reduced death rate so population growth.

maybe think about why people leave an area, since the question is about 'change' it could be an increasing or decreasing population so perhaps people leaving an area due to crop failures and famine
