    Hey guys,

    I was just wondering which of the following case studies I would use for an ageing and youthful population...
    If none of these are the right ones could you possible tell me what case studies I need to learn?

    France
    China
    Uganda
    Poland
    Mexico
    UK
    America

    & can you please send me any notes on this?
    Thanks in advance & good luck!

    For ageing, I used UK, and for youthful, I used Uganda.

    I don't think its very likely as tobacco TNCs were the 15 marker for health last year.

    could you write 15 marks on that though? there's nothing for chemical and just four for mechanical...
    hopefully not, would be a hard question but there's quite a bit to write on

    Mechanical:
    - exfoliation
    - granular disintegration
    - shattering

    Chemical
    - crystal growth
    - hydration

    Would be great if someone who has been very active/aware on this thread could maybe summarise all the 15 markers that are looking likely this year?

    I'm not sure about pharmaceutical ones, I would still revise them.

    The TNC question was:
    'Tobacco transnationals have a positive as well as a negative role to play in health matters in a globalising world economy' (15 marks)

    what do you mean by 'population indicators?'
    Suppose the question is:
    Discuss the usefulness of at least two population development indicators.
    [15 marks]

    Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) is defined as the number of children who die before their first birthday per 1000 births, per year. IMR is a good development indicator as it shows whether a country is more or less developed. For example, UK with a IMR of 4.69 is very low and it shows that the country has good healthcare and sanitation and is therefore less likely to allow for such deaths. Uganda, for instance has a very high IMR and it is an LEDC, accounting for worse healthcare and sanitation meaning that more children will die. IMR is also very effective is working with the Demographic Transition Model and is many cases it correlates with these IMR Figures. For example, UK with it's low 4.69 IMR is in the later, stage 4 of the DTM meaning that the birth and death rate fluctuates.

    Migration Rate is also a useful development indicator and is defined as the number of people emigrating from the country of origin and immigrating into the host country. The migration rate may be useful at showing the development of the host country due to many pull factors which make people want to move to it. For example, the Poland to UK, Slough migration has many pull factors such as better education; better healthcare and higher provision of work for educated professionals such as dentist. All of this accounts for the fact that the host country UK; has a better quality of life and therefore people want to live in it. The country of origin, Poland, might have push factors such as an ageing population and less opportunities for people to get a higher salary job.

    Therefore, Migration Rate & Infant Mortality Rate are useful at showing whether the population of a giving country is developed or not.

    we were told that there aren't any chemical weathering processes in the desert!! this is for hot desert environments right? could you please explain the two?

    My teacher has said that oxbow lakes and deltas are likely to come up in the rivers section, and in coasts possibly an assess question on coastal flooding. But I don't really know if they would be the 15 markers.

    right, socioeconomic relates to social and economic factors of the area, the ones to use are typically schools, housing prices, proffessions, qualifications, wages etc.

    Save crimes, ethnicity (for segregation), type of housing for social welfare. This is probably going to come up, my teachers been drilling us on this stuff. Know your settlement case studies inside out, rather than urban/rural specifically id say, theyve come up before
    Do you mind sending me notes on this because I haven't done it at all
