1. What is the region that you have been assigned to research?


Asia
2. What country within that region that you have chosen?
the Philippines
3. What countries have the other members of your region chosen?
The Philippines, other Asian regions
4. Go to the website: : http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-15391515 and use the tools there to
answer the following questions in your Research notebook:

5. What number were you on the date of your birth according to this web tool?
Sophia-6,131,747,044th; Collin-6,104,166,592nd;
6. How was that number calculated?
Based on data from the UN Population Division, this number is an estimate of how many
people were alive on the date of birth. It is one possible value based on global
population figures and estimates of growth rates over time.
7. How many people had lived before you were born?
Sophia- 81,722,345,009; Collin-81,676,357,100th;
Using the web tool at this site, list the following information for the country you have been
assigned to study:

8. Population
102,278,907 (as of 02.02.17)
9. Number of births per hour
265
10. Number of deaths per hour
60
11. Average yearly growth rate
+1.7%
12. Calculate average yearly growth rate from number of births and deaths ignoring immigration
and emigration. Show your work.
growth rate = (birth rate - death rate)/10; birth rate of Philippines is 24 per 1000 people;
death rate of Philippines is 6.1 per 1000 people
GR = (24 - 6.1)/10
GR = +1.79%
13. What is the range in the number of people added per day between the worlds fastest

growing population and the worlds fastest shrinking population? (see right of screen)
+514 people per day in Qatar compared to -106 people per day in Moldova

growing population and the worlds fastest shrinking population?
(repeat question?)

15. What is life expectancy of women and men in your assigned country?
Women: 71.3 years; Men: 64.5 years
16. How does the life expectancy compare to the countries with the longest and the shortest life
expectancies (see right of screen)?
Highest: Japan (82.7 years); Lowest: Central African Republic (45.9 years)
17. Go to the last screen and, if convenient, print out the summary and add it to your Research
Notebook.
