Exam 3 - Question 2 Map
Hints to assist in answering question #2 on Exam 3:
The online Population Reference Bureau provides data that might assist you in answering question #2.
As you compare data with the map, keep in mind that data from different sources and years vary a little.
Don't expect all data to match exactly; rather look for general trends that match.
Also, although this is an actual map of a specific human geography feature based on 2007 data, other features could result in very similar maps.
You need not correctly identify the exact feature that the map portrays to receive full credit for your answer. Just be sure to explain/defend thoroughly your conclusion.
As you are making your determination and discussing your conclusions, consider countries about which you know something and those that appear to be anomalies.
What countries are highest and lowest? How does the United States compare to other industrialized nations?
