Denmark Economic Analysis-ethnic groups and modes of transportation

by srandall91

Denmark is a very country with people from many different backgrounds. The many ethnic groups in Denmark include: Scandinavian, Inuit, Faroese, German, Turkish, Iranian, Somali. In addition, 87% of Danes live in urban areas. The capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, is home to the most people with their population total reaching 1.174 million as of July 2011. There are 2.36  migrants for every 1000 people. Perhaps the number of migrants is so large is because of Denmark’s proximity to many other countries.

There are numerous modes of transportation in Denmark, which include bus, train, car, boat, plane, and cycling. In the cities the most common form of transportation is either on foot or by bike. Also, train transportation is very common and the train system is relatively easy to learn, especially where I studied abroad in Copenhagen. Another popular form of transportation in the cities, especially Copenhagen is by boat, since they are surrounded by water. There are so many ports to make boat traveling easy. Here are a list of the most common ports-Aabenraa, Aalborg,  Aarhus,  Copenhagen, Esbjerg, Fredericia,  Frederikshavn, Grenaa,  Hanstholm, Helsingor, Hirtshals,Holstebro-Struer, Horsens, Hundested Hvide Sande, Kalundborg, Klaksvik, Kolding,  Korsoer, Køge, Middelfar, Naestved, Nyborg, Nykobing Falster, Odense, Orehoved, Osterby, Randers, Ronne, Skagen, Stubbekoebing, Thyboron, Torshavn  Vejle,Vestero, Marinas, and Marinas in Bornholm. The people in Denmark are very lucky for the fact that they have lots of natural minerals they can sell. These minerals include petroleum, natural gas, salt, chalk, limestone, gravel, stone, and sand. Another resource that generates a lot of revenue for Denmark is fish. The country is surrounded by water so it would only make sense that the fishing industry would be a huge part of Denmark’s economy.
