• A rise in the older population, 75 yrs and over, from 9% to 13% (29,000) of the total population is estimated by 2031 for Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot.
There are several effects and problems caused by the fact that the population of the UK appears to be growing older. Throughout this essay i will attempt to identify these numerous problems, which include the history and demography of the country, overview of the problem, causes and effects and eventually the solution. Then I will attempt to round the essay off with an effective conclusion which will identify the key body of my text and give a general consensus of what I have stated.
In 1996 the largest population consisted of people aged 30-50, there were not as many people in the dependency load. In 2011, there were more people aged 40-65, who are getting close to retirement. There are not as many babies being born today as previous years because people are choosing to not have as many children. The baby boomers are getting older and there will soon be more people in the dependency load as the workforce. In 2011 there were more people ages 85 and up because nowadays people have been able to live longer.
In 2001 Chatswood had a population of 16,006 people. This increased to 20,967 by 2011. In 2001 the fertility rate in Chatswood was 1.74, not replacement level however with a young population it meant substantial growing for the next few years. As well as this there was a surge in migration, mainly being asian immigrants.
London represents a unique kind of diversity, the rest of Britain is changing between 1991 and 2001 the UK population increased by 2.2 million some of the 1.14 million of whome were born abroad.
astound 1,379,302,771 and India comes at a close second place at 1,281,935,911. Some additional information I found compelling under components of population change is that on average every 8 seconds one birth occurs. One death tends to occur every 12 seconds, which is truly sad. One international migrant every 33 seconds and we net gain one person every 14 seconds. From my perspective,
Over the past years, there has been an exceptionally large national increase which has caused several population issues. These issues include: homelessness, deforestation and more fields being used to make space for shops and houses disrupting the biodiversity growth. Problems like this are caused when there is an abnormal increase in the birth rate where more babies are born; this is also known as a ‘baby boom’. This can occur when nations have more children as a whole and events like this normally takes place after an achievement – an example being when we won the World War Two. The country was relieved that the fighting was over so their instantly celebrated which is why more children were born. In the last 50 years alone, the population has doubled showing just how fast the population is actually growing and even though it may seem fortunate that there are less recorded deaths, this makes the Economical
Of this 277,800, 137,200 are male and 140,600 are female (Newcastle.gov.uk, 2014). It is approximated that 22.8% of this population are aged 0-19 years with the remaining 77.2% of the population being aged 20-90+ (Newcastle.gov.uk, 2014). Furthermore it is estimated that 23.8% of school children are from a minority ethnic group (Chimat.org.uk, 2014).
It might impact because more immigrant households are enrolling in early childhood programs. According to Edweek.org(2014) the enrollment has increased in certain regions to include the west and south regions. Latinos were one of the races that were in high attendance in those school districts. Changing demographics can impact the center due to teachers not adequately prepared to teach children from cultural and linguistic background. This impact would force centers to have teachers training programs to prepare teachers for a more diverse center. Eric.ed.gov(2014) discusses that teachers will need to modify or change their teaching practices to now fit a changing demographic to specifically meet the needs of their students.
Demography is the study of populations which analyzes the distribution of a group of individuals. This relates to sociology because the distribution within a population gives a representation of the social interactions people have within society through statistics such as race and crime. In this project, the demographic characteristics of race, gender, income, and crime were examined for my hometown, then compared to those of the closest major city to determine the relationship between them.
Dictator Pol Pot held goals of attaining independence in Cambodia. He was also determined in making both social and economic reforms in Cambodia. However, he did not achieve his goals. This was due to his fall in the year 1978. The effects of his poor leadership were the major causes of his fall. Based on the behaviorism approach, a leader should portray good characters that are beneficial to his people. Good behavior is rewarded while bad behavior is punished (Chandler, 1999). Therefore, his behavioral consequences were punished because he failed in his leadership. Due to his harsh and brutal leadership, revolts were made against him. As a result, he lost power before achieving his goals. Therefore, good leadership traits and behavior would lead pol to achieving
A demographic transition is the transition from a populace with high conception rates and passing rates to a populace that is steady, yet with a much lower level of conception and demise rates.
In the year ending 31 December 2009, Australia's estimated resident population (ERP) had increased by 433,000 people to 22.2 million, a 2.0% increase from December 2008. This followed growth of 460,000 people (or 2.2%) between December 2007 and December 2008. The rate of population growth has become considerably faster since the mid-2000s. Over the two decades prior to 2006, the annual growth rate had averaged 1.3%, adding an average of 234,000 people per year in that period. The recent growth rate of around 2% per year is faster than at any other time in the past several decades, and faster than nearly all other developed countries.
Look around you, we’re not full. Approximately 255 people live in every square kilometre in UK. This isn’t ridiculous since Germany has a population density of 229 people per square kilometre. It isn’t even near the limit either since Singapore and Hong Kong function with population densities over 6000 people per square kilometre! According to The Guardian an IPSOS MORI poll showed that the idea that the UK is full is due to misinformation. The poll showed that Britons believed that 24% of the British population was not from the UK. Since the actual figure is only 13% it shows that the British population isn’t properly informed and therefore is making assumptions about whether we are being overrun by
