About this video

Elizabeth Willott analyzes the drastic population increase of the past century and its effects. By using the US Census Bureau and other prestigious organizations as her sources, she details on the rate of population, which was at its highest in the 1960s and 1970s. She explains the factors behind this population growth peak, such as the decrease of the death rate; fewer amount of people that lived undernourished, and the increase of clean water, medicines and food. Willott evaluates the situation in Guatemala and comments on the condition of women with scarce resources and lack of education. She also compares the population chart of Guatemala with those of other countries and based on US Census Bureau charts, she shares a brief hypothesis of what the future population amount will be by the year 2050.
