Global Urbanization and Development

1. First look over the data provided in the selected Tables from the World Development Report to get a
feel for which countries and regions have the highest levels of urbanization, and which ones will see
this grow the fastest to 2015. Then, select a set of 33 countries (do not choose any countries that are
missing the key data needed to complete 1a through 1f below). Your country set should be
representative of the globe (that is, you should have countries from all regions of the globe as well as
the different income levels, etc). Of these 32 countries, six must be: Canada, The United Kingdom,
Rep. of Korea, China, Pakistan, and Tanzania. Then, to illustrate the possible relationships between
urbanization and development, plot on standard graph paper:
a) the level of urbanization in 2005 (3rd column in Table A2) on the vertical (Y) axis against i)
the level of economic development as represented by PPP GNI$/per capita for 2007 (8th
column in Table 1), and in a separate graph, ii) Gross Domestic Product per capita % Growth
(9th column of Table 1). Place the latter variables on the horizontal (x) axis. Draw a (curved)
best fit  line (by eye) for both. Label these graphs Figure 1 and Figure 2, and provide
appropriate titles etc.
b) the level of urbanization in 2005 on the vertical (Y) axis, against two measures of social
development on the horizontal (X) axis: i) female life expectancy at birth in 2006 (11th column
in Table 1), and ii) the Under 5 mortality rate per 1,000 in 2006 (9th column in Table 2). Draw
a best fit line for each (by eye). Label appropriately (Figures 3 and 4).
c) the level of urbanization in 2005 on the vertical (y) axis, against the value added as % of
GDP of i) agriculture, ii) industry, and iii) services (columns 5, 6 and 7 of Table 3). Draw a
best fit line for each (by eye). Label appropriately (Figures 5, 6 and 7).
d) The level of urbanization in 2005 on the vertical (Y) axis, against the Share of Poorest
Quintile in National Consumption or Income (1st column in Table 2) on the horizontal (x) axis.
Draw a best fit line (by eye). Label appropriately (Figure 8).
e) The level of urbanization in 2005 on the vertical (Y) axis, against a measure of gender
equality the Ratio of Girls to Boys education enrollment in 2006 (7th column in Table 2) on
the horizontal axis (x). Draw a best fit line (by eye). Label appropriately.
f) The level of urbanization in 2005 on the vertical (Y) axis, against the Carbon Dioxide
Emissions per capita in 2004 (last column in Table 1) on the horizontal (X) axis. Draw a best
fit line (by eye). Label appropriately……………………………………………………………………………………………………………
