The death rate has fallen since 1900, which could be due to improvements in healthcare or the improved nutrition which has accounted for the reduction in death rates. However there are consequences for the decreasing death rate and one major consequence of this is the ageing population. The UK date rate refers to the overall number of deaths per year. In 2010, the death rates decreased to 493,242 which is a reduction of the death rate from 600,000 deaths per year in the early 1900s. There have been several reasons for the decline in death rate, and one of the reasons include the improved nutrition that the UK has achieved during the 1900s.
Examine the reasons for and the consequences of the fall in death rate since 1900. (24 marks) The death rate counts the amount of people who die per thousand of the UK population per year. Since 1900, the death rate has almost halved from 19 to 10 per thousand. Although the population has rose considerably since 1900’s. During the early 1900’s, there has been certain factors which increased the death rate such as the 2 world wars and the flu epidemic in 1918.
According to N.L Tranter (1996), over three quarters of the decline in the death rate from 1850 to 1970 was due to a fall in the number of deaths from infectious diseases. Since deaths from infectious disease were commonest amongst the younger generations, it is not surprising that most of the decline in the death rate came from infants, children and young adults. This decrease in the death rate is part of what has led to a growing population in the UK. However, this is not the only reason for a decline in the death rate leading to an increase in the population in the UK. Thomas McKeown (1972) also points out that improved nutrition is also part of what has led to a decreasing death rate, he believes it is accountable for up to half the reduction in death rates.
Your fitness is important because it has a major affect on your way of life. If you hardly exercise and hardly participate in daily activity its likely you’ll end up being a lazy person that lacks motivation and eventually ends up being unfit & occasionally getting sick because there immune system is weak because of there lack of fitness. Being fit helps promote a stronger immune system that works in the proper way. This way, the chances of a person getting ill is also get lessened. Also the ability of the body healing itself without medicine is improved.
Reducing the number of people dying from cancer will have a significant impact on increasing life expectancy. CURRENT POSITION In recognition of the inequalities gap, Walsall set the year 2010 target to reduce cancer mortality in the under 75s by 27.5%. Since 1995-97 the rate has fallen by 13% from 150.3 per 100 000 to 130.8 per 100,000 in 2003-05. This means that 50 fewer Walsall people are dying each year from cancer than in 1995-97. Despite year on year fluctuations, Walsall tPCT is still on track to meet the 2010 target.
Over a five year period, starting in 2005, Lincare has reduced their ratio from 40.6 to 39.6. Gentiva Health Services remained nearly the same with a ratio of 57.1 in 2000 down to 56.9 in 2009. From an efficiency standpoint, Lincare is converting their receivables into cash faster than its competitor. In addition, Lincare has outperformed their cash conversion rate from 2008 to 2009. Lincare’s conversion rate went from 14 days to 17.5 days which means Lincare’s cash flow generation improves year after
Another health problem with a poor ventilation home is caused from viruses and bacteria brought into the home by one person brought from other homes. Springfield has a higher rate of asthma then the state of Massachusetts. 5,313 people in Springfield have asthma and over 5,000 people die every year from an asthma attack. Of the buildings in Springfield 90% were built before 1979 and 48% were built before 1939. Older buildings in Springfield have many more dust mites compared to the newer buildings in
Aside from the Plague deaths, there was also a decline in the birth rate. The net result was that by 1400, Europe's population was half what it had been in 1345. This is known with some accuracy from the medieval church, census, and tax records that have survived. Europe's population took about six generations to
The study estimated that in 2005 in the United States, there were 45,000 deaths associated with lack of health insurance. A Johns Hopkins Hospital study found that heart transplant complications occurred most often amongst the uninsured, and those patients who had private health plans fared better than those covered by Medicaid or
However, on the other hand, penalties are given if they disobey the rule set. This essay will be assessing the positive and negative effects of the OCP and whether or not it has been an effective or successful policy. The birth rate (BR) had fallen from 31 to 19 by the end of the 1990s over 20 years after the policy was put in place. A crisis of population exceeds its food supply would have occurred if the population carried on increasing. This crisis has been avoided as there was a 300 million reduction in the population.
