On the other hand, the total number of people reported affected by natural disasters has increased from 0, to 250 millions over the last 50 years. This shows that the population is growing, and more people are choosing to live in hazardous areas, thus concluding that more people will be affected. The number of disasters has increased but the numbers of deaths has fallen. This could be because of global warming, which has increased the number of hurricanes, tornadoes and other tragedies (hydro metrological hazards). On the other hand, the number of deaths has fallen because of Predictions, (which are 90% accurate, and help give a better understating of the disaster unfolding) Precautions, (meaning people don’t take any chances, and evacuate their homes) and Preparedness (working as community to prepare for any disaster).
Members of this population experience many difficulties and risks that are physical, emotional, and psychological and must be given care and support. The elderly population makes up a substantial amount of the general population in the U.S. and is on a rise in the coming years. “As late as 1930, America's older population numbered less than 7 million—only 5.4% of the population. Today, one out of every 9 Americans is "old"—another former youth turns 50 every 8 seconds. Those aged 65 and older now exceed 35 million.
One other reason for changes in the divorce rate is increased life expectancy. If a person gets married in their late twenties, they will live for another 50 years and this
To what extent and in what ways does the ageing population present potential challenges for modern societies? The population in Britain has an ageing population due to a mixture of declining births and life anticipation. This trend is being quite worse by unavoidable retirement from the so called baby boom generations which will occur over the next few decades. The so called baby boomers have been born from the first few decades form the second world war and now its time for them to retire or some may have retired. During this period of time there have been around seventeen millions births which have been recorded in Britain itself.
After traditionalists baby boomers are the next oldest age group in today’s work place. Baby boomers were born between 1946 and 964 and are predominantly in the 40’s and 50’s. Baby boomers are currently the most influential generation as many positions with power and authority are held by them. According to Aabout.com, 70 percent of law firm partners are Baby Boomers. According to Legal Careers, “Labor statistics indicate that nearly 80 million Baby Boomers will exit the workplace in the next decade.
Demographic trends in family life POPULATION OF THE UK * IN 1901 UK population was 38.2m by 2006 it had grown to 60.6 m * This population growth has been driven by natural change , every year since 1901 there's been more births than deaths. * From the 1980’s onwards net migration (which is immigration exceeding emigration) has been the main factor. * Between 2001 and 2004 net migration accounted for two thirds of the increase in UK population. Changes in birth rate * Only 716,000 children were born in 2004 , this is 34% fewer than in 1901 and 21% fewer than 1971. * The birth-rate is a history of fluctuations.
This is the potential usage in 1995. In order to project the numbers forward to 2000 (the date of product release), we must estimate population growth. The elderly population (65 and older), which currently receives 40% of all acute blood loss transfusions, is expected to double by 2030. Assuming linear growth, we can expect this age group to grow 14% by 2000. Similarly, the remaining adult population (under 65), which currently receives 60% of all acute blood loss transfusions, is expected to grow 5.9% by 2030 ((6 – 5.67) / 5.67 = 5.9%).
From 1992 to January 1, 2001, the number of inmates age 50 and older jumped from 41, 586 to 113,358 (Camp & Camp, 1992 – 2001). The aging inmate population in the United States’ federal and state prisons is creating a heavy burden on government resources and budgets. This paper examines the burden created by such a population and the reasons causing a growth in elderly inmate populations. Also, this paper offers possible solutions, including creating geriatric prisons, early release for elderly inmates, and a restructuring of mandatory minimum sentences. The Alabama Department of Corrections defines a
17, Issue 31). There is a direct correlation between poverty and rising health care costs that make it hard to afford the health care that is need for a family. This author wants to explore the affects this is having on our children, marriage and domestically. Review of literature Over the past 30 years researchers have demonstrated that the number of Americans without health insurance- mostly lower class has steadily risen. Economists estimate about 2 trillion will be spent on medical care in 2007.
In America the elderly are seen as a burden and mistreated. But in other countries the elderly are respected and seen as advisors for the younger generations. The fastest growing age group in the United States is the elderly. According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, in 1980, there were 25.7 million older persons; by 1990 the amount of older Americans had reached 31.2 million. In 2000, 35 million of the United States population was over 65 years of age, and by 2030 the figure is expected to reach 71.5 million older Americans.
