Asian American Gerald Trahan ETH/125 July 21, 2011 Jere Wilson Asian American The Asian American population of 17.3 million people in the United States as of 2010, which comprised of 5.6 percent of the total population in the United States, was a higher number then I was expecting. And also 2.6 million people that are Asian American that are five and older speak Chinese at home and more so after Spanish, Chinese is the most widely spoken non-English language in the United States. Fifty percent of Asian Americans that are twenty-five years or older have a bachelor’s degree or higher level of education, where it compares to twenty-eight percent of all Americans in that group. This number almost doubles all the other groups. Eighty-five
Many were below this with only three exceptions. These exceptions were, “White other” at 1.8% growth, “Other Asian” at 1.0% and “African” at 1.0%, just below the average. In terms of percentage the “Other Asians” had a growth rate of 200%, doubling their population in effect. The “Africans” grew at 100% whilst the “Other white” were at only 69%. So although whites were the largest of the groups within the census, Asians were growing at a much faster rate.
Arab’s heritage span reveals a culture thousands of years old. The majority of Arab Americans hold high-school degrees and almost half hold college degrees, which is significantly higher than the general American population. Similar to the general population, 60% of adult Arab Americans are in the workforce in a variety of fields, carrying a higher than average median income. We will review multiple facets of the Arab American culture, including history and language to provide a better understanding of the Arab American culture. History of Arab Americans Arabs originally started emigrating to the United States along with Spanish explorers in the late 15th century, but only started immigrating in numbers in the late 1800s.
American Indians, African American and Asian Americans are some of the larger racial minorities in U.S. history. It is listed that African Americans average population is 12.9%. Asian Americans are at 4.6% today but that amount is changing rapidly. There are around 500,000 people that enter this country legally from Mexico every year, but at least 500,000 more cross the border illegally. It is said about 61% of all those who enter the
Females make up 50.7 % of the population in 2013. 48.3 % of the population is Latinos and Hispanics, 35.1 % of the population is born outside of the United States, and 56.8 % of the population over 5 years old speaks a language other than English at home. B.1. Population Economic Status Assessment Los Angeles County is a large community with unemployment rate of 9.9%, which is higher that the California rate of 8.9% (County Health Ranking 2015). With 48.3% of the population being Hispanic and Latinos, 35.1 % of the population being born outside of the United States, and 56.8% of the population over 5 year old speaking a language other than English at home, this plays an important factor in education in terms of academic education and also in the education of preventative healthcare practices.
By 1890, several cities touted populations over 1 million people and by 1900, New York City was the second largest city in the world, outranked only by London. Huge population increases contributed to the poor living conditions of many urban Americans, which was characterized by filth, poverty and pollution. Economic change and growth were also evident. Mass production increased, and along with it, the availability of material goods. The nation’s workforce expanded and Record numbers of women and children joined the workforce.
The majority of the population is employed in services, wholesale and retail trade, and government sector. The unemployment rate in Corpus Christi is 7%, which is higher compared to the nation’s unemployment rate. The median household income in Corpus Christi in 2013 was $47,029, which is below the national income of $51,563. Another interesting fact about Corpus Christi
Furthermore, the non-Hispanic Whites population will slightly decline even with the burgeoning elderly population because of healthier lifestyles and improved health care services available. Hispanics are expected to increase by 188% and account for nearly one-quarter of the nation's population although, The United States Census Bureau believes many Hispanics born in America claim Whites on census surveys. Asians, however, are expected to triple to over 33 million by 2050. Historically, America has been a "Black and Whites" country with Blacks accounting for nearly 13% of the current population. By 2050, the Black population will increase roughly 15%, making them the second largest minority group in America.
Chapter 2 Hispanics Overview The Hispanic population in 2008 included 45.5 million (15.1%) of the estimated US population (U.S. Census Bureau, 2008). Hispanics represent the largest and fastest growing minority group. Hispanics come from more than 20 countries sharing a common language. The three largest ethnic identity groups of Hispanics in the United States are Mexican, Puerto Rican, and Cuban. Hispanics, with a median age of 27.6 years, are younger than the general population as a whole at 36.6 years.
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.
