For an assignment, I have to use this data sheet to do a few things with the data it gives me. To get to it, go to PRB. org, click on 2008 World Population Data Sheet, and then click on 2008 World Population Data Sheet again
I'm stuck in this:
Construct a bar chart showing the regional distributions of the world's population for the current year, 2025, and 2050. What trends are reflected in the bar chart?
and this one, too: What proportion of the world's people live in less developed countries (LDCs) in the current year? In more developed countries (MDCs)? What proportion of the world's people is projected to live in LDCs in 2025? In 2050? What proportion is projected to live in MDCs in 2025? In 2050?
I'm completely lost. I don't really understand what any of these questions even mean.
At the top of this search result page, there are several examples of bar graphs. I'm sure you've seen many. There is also a link (Create A Graph) that will help you make one:
For the second question, it sounds as if you need to gather data about LDCs and MDCs from that website, and then do some addition. Are you supposed to come up with a bar graph for this question, too?
