We’ve received breaking news! An asteroid carrying a deadly zombie virus is headed towards Earth! We don’t know where it will land, but we know that the virus it carries will have devastating effects on the population of whatever country whose borders it lands in. Government agencies are already working on securing national borders worldwide, but our first step must be to research the demographics of the nations of the world that astronomical simulations have suggested may be the landing site of the asteroid.
Analysts, your job is to use online resources to complete this research. Use the United Nations’ Demographic Risk Assessment Form to record your findings. You may find the following websites useful:
