World population = 7 billion

It just so happens that this year the United Nation's announcement that the world's population reached 7 billion coincides with the lesson I teach on demographics, population growth, and urbanization in Intro to Sociology.

In searching for materials to make this data-intensive lesson more accessible to intro students, I came across this video from National Geographic.

It provides a series of facts about global population growth in a format that is eye-catching and memorable. This video is perfect for introducing the concept of demographic change.
