Texas contributed to impoverished Regions. Extremely low literacy rates

Texas is the second most populous US state the population in texas in 1900 was 3,048,710 the
Population in 2017 is 28.449 million. In recent decades it has experienced strong population
Growth. Texas has many major cities and metropolitan areas along with many towns and rural
Areas. But much of the population is in the major cities of Houston San Antonio Dallas Fort
Worth Austin and El paso. The united states has an estimated population of 326,326,020 in
November 25th 2017. Making it the third most populous country It is very urbanized with 81%
Living in cities and suburbs as of 2014. The total fertitilty rate in the united states estimated for
2016 was 1.82 children per women. The American population almost quadrupled during the
20th century at a growth rate of about 1.3% a year from about 76 million in 1900 to 281 million
In 2000. It reached the 200 million mark in 1968 and the 300 million mark on October 17 2006.
The Census Bureau projects a U.S. population of 417 million in 2060, a 38% increase from
2007. The overall population of the world is 7.47 billion as of July 2017 its overall population
Density is 50 people per km excluding Antarctica. Nearly two thirds of the population lives in
Asia and is predominantly urban and suburban with more than 2.5 billion living in the countries
Of china and india combined. The worlds fairly low literacy rate is contributed to impoverished
Regions. Extremely low literacy rates are concentrated in three central regions the Arab states
South and west asia and sub Sahara africa. The worlds largest ethnic group is Han Chinese
With Mandarin being the most spoken language in terms of native speakers. Human migration
Has been shifting towards cities and urban centers with the urban population jumping from
29% in 1950 to 50.5% in 2005 Dr. Ron Wimberley Dr. Libby Morris and Dr. Gregory Fulkerson
Predicted that by May 23, 2007 to be the first time urban populations outnumbered rural
Populations in history. China and india are the most populous countries as the birth rate has
Consistently dropped in developed countries it continues to rise in developing countries.
Tokyo is the largest urban conglomeration in the world. The total fertility rate of the world is
Estimated as 2.52 children per women. The world population growth is approxamently 1.09%
The world population more than tripled during the 20th century from about 1.65 billion in 1900
to 5.97 billion in 1999. The UN projects a world population of 9.15 billion in 2050 which is a
32.69% increase from 2010. 1,650 million was the population of the world in 1900.
Higher rural population density is associated with smaller farm sizes. Higher rural population
density is also associated with greater demand for inorganic fertilizer. Maize and teff yields do
Not rise with population density. Farm income per hectare decreases as rural population
Density increases. Farmers are stuck in place unable to intensity with increasing population
Density. Increased population size in the state of Texas the united states and the whole world
In general has hindered agriculture and farming. With more people moving living and being
Born in urban areas there are less and less farmers in the world less and less people
Participating in agriculture in general. And with a bigger population and less farmers and farms
We have less food to feed the mass amounts of people which leads to mass starvation and
Famine. We have seen this before in less developed and developing countries and continents.
Like Africa and the middle East where there are so many people in such a small area without
The resources to produce food and without enough food to feed these people. We have always
Seen this in third world countries but it may be coming to first world countries sooner than we
Think if we have more and more people migrating and reproducing and less and less of them
Wanting to go into the field of agriculture or work on a farm or run a farm we may run into a
Food shortage problem faster than we think.
