Benefits Of Population Density
Population density is something that has to be in every country as it deals with the number of people or citizens occupying that particular country. It is therefore important to know that population density of a country is not the same as population distribution of that particular country as this has been a major challenge to a large number of people from different parts across the globe. To those who population density and population distribution are confusing terms, population density therefore majors in determining the number of people that is a particular country while population distribution is concerned with determining the way various people are spread in various different locations in the same country. There are however two major categories of population densities in various countries across the globe. The major types of population densities however also result to some benefits to various countries.
The first class of population density is a high population density. High population density generally comes as a result of high number of the people in a country compared to the general size of the country. Generally a high population density is preferred to low population density because of the major benefits that it has brought to most of the countries with high number of people or citizens. High population density has greatly contributed to the growth of various countries in different ways. Below are some of the major ways through which a high population density can help promote the growth of a country.
Mostly, areas with a high number of working people seem to be better to live and work as compared to other areas with few number of people. Because of better living areas in highly populated areas a large number of people in various countries tend to lead their lives in many urban areas. High population do tend to increase the level of productivity in various countries. In most of the countries with high population density, there are a lot of workers in various jobs and thus increasing the country’s overall productivity. Another great reason why high population density is also important is because of the high level of taxes generated for various developments and thus contributing to high economic growth. Lastly, high population density also contributes to increasing the gross national income of a country through generation of more funds as well as various products and services.
The other category of population density that also comes with various benefits is the low population density. A low population density is an advantage to a country as there is less exploitation of the country’s natural resources. With a low population density in a country, there is also less pollution and deforestation. Countries with few number of people also experience less congestion especially in various workplaces as well on various roads which therefore results to high traffic congestion.
