8.1 DEMOGRAPHIC PRESSURES: AGING & YOUTHFUL POPULATIONS 


What is the measure of the average number of children who are born to women of childbearing age in the population?



Vocab  

• Birth/death rate – annual # of births/deaths per 1,000  people in a designated geographic area

• Total fertility rate – average # of children women in a  specific population bear over their lifetime

• Infant mortality rate – annual # of deaths of infants 1  year old or younger for every 1,000 infants born alive

• Maternal mortality rate – death of a woman while  pregnant or within 42 days of the termination of a pregnancy from any cause due to or aggravated by pregnancy or the  way it is managed. Expressed as the # of maternal deaths  per 100,000 pregnancies


What is the leading cause of death in infants 1 month to 1 year of age in the us?



• Sex ratio – number of men per 100 females in a designated  geographic area

• In-migration/Out-migration – movement of people into or  out of a designated area

• Immigration – act of entering one country after leaving  another

• Emigration – act of departing one country with the purpose  of taking up residence elsewhere

• Net migration rate – rate based on the # of people  entering and # of people leaving a designated area in a year. We divide that number by the size of the relevant population and then multiply the result by 1,000


What is the number of males per 100 females called?



• Internal migration – movement of people within the given  boundaries of a country. If you want to learn more check out How did mcluhan explain the differences of the varied forms of media?

• Agglomerations – urban populations with 1 million or moreIf you want to learn more check out What is the meaning of the keyhole system?

Bernard Berelson & John Samuel’s theory of fertility decline  thresholds argues that fertility will not decline significantly  enough to begin the demographic transition until…

1. <50% labor force employed in agriculture

2. 50% of age 5-19 enrolled in school

3. Life expectancy is at least 60 years

4. Infant mortality is <65 per 1,000

5. 80%+ females age 15-19 are unmarried

Our aging world  

∙ Most of human history, 65+ ~ 3-4% of population ∙ Today = 15%; 2050 = 25% (estimate)

∙ By 2030, working-age population expected to contract in  nearly all developed countries (US=exception thanks to  expected in-migration)

∙ By 2050, 60+ = 2 billion globally – ¾ from developing  countries

Case study of Bangladesh

 Area: 147,570 sq km (56, 977 sq mi) 94th in the world

 Population: 160 million (estimation 2015) If you want to learn more check out What is the meaning of avogadro's law?

 Life expectancy at birth: 69.75 years

 Male: 67.93

 Female : 71.65 (2011 est.)

 Growth rate: 1.34 % per annum

 (1.8 to 2.0 million people are being added to the total population every year)

Migration by the numbers

 Number of international migrants more than doubled 1975-2000   Increase of 71 million migrants in world since 2000

 ~244 million migrants worldwide; ~ population of Brazil (5th most  populous country)

 1 in 10 persons in developed countries is a migrant  1 out of 5 migrants live in the US (~40 million out of 303 million) If you want to learn more check out What is the law of segregation?

Migration crisis: the facts

• Worst crisis since WWII?

– Media focus often on Europe – but greatest inflows are to  Turkey & Lebanon

– Some European countries have seen similar migrant inflow  peaks – 1950-1970 (Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Vietnam,  Uganda), 1990s (Yugoslavia, Kosovo), early 2000s (Iraq,  Afghanistan)

– Globalization makes crisis more unstable

– Open borders, modern forms of transportation, new forms of communication

– Increasing pressures on EU vs. Euro-skeptics

– Should Brussels decide who gets asylum? Nations usually  do that…and EU referendum is coming up in June…

Labor Migration

• “Losing One Million Scientists, Germany Turns to  Migrants” (written June 2014)

• “16 American Companies Founded by Immigrants”

– Immigrant-founded Fortune 500 companies employed 3.6  million workers in 2011 and responsible for $1.7 trillion in  revenues in 2010

– Case: “Upwardly Global: Building a Model for Assisting  Immigrant Professionals”
