A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of population.
Wikipedia defines the term as follows: “Population typically refers to the number of people in a single area, whether it be a city or town, region, country, continent, or the world.”
Simply put, the population is the total count of the number of people inhabiting a certain space. The population of a given area is calculated to be the number of people living in that area measured on the 1st of January in a given year. The source for the same could be taken from the most recent population census. Census here is the official count or survey of a population.
Calculation of population is important because governments require this crucial information to plan in accordance and take the right decisions while governing a particular area. Again, for the betterment of society, to aid development, and help the distribution of resources, calculating population is important.
