Utah Core Standards
UT.WG. WORLD GEOGRAPHY
WG.2. POPULATION DISTRIBUTION AND MIGRATION
The movement and distribution of people is influenced by many factors, including environmental, cultural, economic, and geopolitical forces. These migration trends alter geographic conditions. Geographers use data to understand population distribution and migration by looking at population characteristics, push and pull factors, and numerous other variables. Analyzing this data offers an opportunity to examine complex and challenging real-world issues.
WG.2.2. Students will explain push and pull factors causing voluntary and involuntary migration and the consequences created by the movement of people.
WG.2.3. Students will investigate the effects of significant patterns of human movement that shape urban and rural environments over time, such as mass urbanization, immigration, and the movement of refugees.
