Title: Population%20density%20and%20distribution%20in%20Russian%20Federation%20(??????????%20?????????)


1
Population density and distribution in Russian
Federation (?????????? ?????????)
  • Satoshi Nakayama

2
Population distribution in Russia
  • Distribution of population sorted by regions
  • Highest density
  • Lowest density
  • Physical and human factors for varying density

3
Where is Russia?

General information of Russia
Area 17,098,242 km2
Population 140,041,247
Density 8.190388637615493 people/km2

Population distribution (1)

Population Distribution (2)
8
Observations
  • Densely populated in the west (European Russia)
  • Sparsely populated in the north and east
    (Siberia)
  • Moderately populated in the south

9
Reasons
  • Physical factors
  • Availability of water
  • Landscape (relief)
  • Climate
  • Natural resources
  • Human factors
  • Job opportunities
  • Transportation

10
Physical factor (1)
  • Water- rivers

11
Physical factor (2)
  • Relief

12
Physical factor (3)
  • Climate, e.g. average temperature and rainfall

13
  • Rainfall

14
Physical factor (4)
  • Natural resources, including oil, wood, coal and
    fertile soil

15
  • Oil

16
  • Wood

17
Human factor (1)
  • Transportation, such as major roads and railways,
    as well as some ports

18
Conclusion
19
Population distribution
  • Uneven
  • Densely populated in the west and south west
  • Moderately populated along the border in the
    south
  • Sparsely populated in the north and north east

20
Reasons
  • Why is it densely populated in European Russia?
  • Why is it sparsely populated in Siberia?
  • Why is it moderately populated in the south of
    Siberia?

21
European Russia
  • Densely populated because
  • More transportation
  • More communication
  • Warmer than Siberia
  • Flat land that is close to sea level
  • Sufficient rainfall

22
Siberia
  • Sparsely populated because
  • Annual average temperature is very low
  • Insufficient rainfall
  • Long winters
  • Transportation is not as developed
  • More mountains
  • South of Siberia is slightly warmer
