    Has anyone got a list of questions or a test so that I can test my case study knowledge for Hazards and the Population topic. Any questions that will help me test if I know it or things that I should know. Anything and everything thanks.

    For Population:
    - Define Birth Rate, Death Rat, and Natural Change
    - Describe the characteristics of the DTM
    - Why does the population structure change over time? What changes would you expect to see in different stages of the DTM?
    - What is 'dependency ratio' and what is an 'aging population'? Describe problems caused by the UK's aging population.
    - Why do people migrate? Describe two types of migration.
    - Why to immigrants tend to live near each other?
    - Why is rabid population growth causing problems? (case study ^-^)
    - Explain the main points of a birth control, and a non-birth control population policy (case study ^-^)
    - Describe and explain the positive and negative impacts of migration (case study ^-^)
    - Name an example of international migration, including the push and pull factors

    I think this covers everything Sorry, I dont study Hazards so I don't know the topics involved


    1. Which country introduced the One Child Policy?
    2. Give me a negative impact on the host country of a migrant moving away.
    3. Give me a positive impact on the receiving country of a migrant moving away.
    4. Give me a strategy used to cope with a Ageing population in a EU country.
    5. Why would a refugee leave Libya to go to Spain?
    6. What is birth rate?
    7. What is death rate?
    7b. What is natural change?
    8. What does a Demographic Transition Model show us?
    9. What could you draw to show population depending on gender and age group?
    10. What happens to a host country's population as a result of young working people migrating?
    11. What services in the UK are older people given?
    12. Describe Stage 3 of the DTM in a developed EU country.
    13. Describe Stage 2 of the DTM in Bangladesh.
    14. Explain why the birth rate in a poor country is high.
    15. What are the consequences of having 2 children in China?
    16. What is a emigrant?
    17. What is a immigrant?
    18. Define asylum seeker.
    19. Define refugee.

    Loads of population questions from every aspect of the unit. Not sure what you mean by Natural Hazards, if you mean Restless Earth I did study it but the phys exam has already been and gone.
