Question

In the year 2020, the urban population of a country is 40,000 people. Back in the year 2000, the urban population was 35,000 people. The country’s total population in 2020 is 90,000 people, but in the year 2000 it was 45,000.

(a) What is the *pace of urbanization* between the years
2000 and 2020? In your answer, be sure to mention which of the two
measures of “pace” you are using.

(b) Explain (in words) the reasoning that you followed to derive your answer to part (a).

Answer #1

a) we calculate it as:

(Rural population in 2020 / Rural population in 2000)/20, which will yield 50000 / 10000 / 20 = 0.25 [rural population has gone up]

Or

Ln(% of urban population in 2020/% of urban population in 2000)/20 = Ln(44%/78%)/20 [this also implies a reduction in urbanization over time]

b) We would normally expect both of these methods to yield a positive rate of urbanization. In this case, however, the total population of the country has grown 100% over this 20-year period, but migration to urban areas (or urbanization of erstwhile rural areas) didn't happen at the same rate

Your father’s annual nominal salary back in 2000 the base year,
was USD 50,000 and in 2020, his nominal salary is USD 90,000. In
2020, the current cost of the basket of goods and services is USD
30,000, while in the base year, it was USD 25,000. a. Enter the
value by which your father’s real wage changed from 2000 to 2020.
b. Based on your answer in (a), has your father’s standard of
living increased, decreased, or remain the...

Suppose the population of a town was 40,000 on January 1, 2010
and was 50,000 on January 1, 2015.
Let P(t) be the population of the town in thousands of
people t years after January 1, 2010.
(a) Build an exponential model (in the form P(t) =
a*bt ) that relates P(t) and t. Round the value
of b to 5 significant figures.
(b) Write the exponential model in the form P(t) =
a*ekt. According to this model, what is...

1. I wanted to estimate the population mean number of cups of

In this exercise, you will analyze the supply-demand equilibrium
of a city under some special simplifying assumptions about land
use. The assumptions are: (i) all dwellings must contain exactly
1,500 square feet of floor space, regardless of location, and (ii)
apartment complexes must contain exactly 15,000 square feet of
floor space per square block of land area. These land-use
restrictions, which are imposed by a zoning authority, mean that
dwelling sizes and building heights do not vary with distance to...

Argentina and Ecuador: Understanding the Currency Crisis
While fiscal policy is never far from the mind of your average
Argentine, who remembers the tough times and hyperinflation of the

to the forefront of public concern. Though the early 1990s may have
been characterized by financial optimism, Argentina has been in a
recession since Brazil's 1998 monetary crisis sent shockwaves
across the regional and global markets.
In early 2002,...
