Watch The World Grow Older In 4 GIFs

Watch The World Grow Older In 4 GIFs | geographic world news | Scoop.it
Some countries are getting old. Others are staying young — and getting much bigger.

Victoria McNamara's insight:

Over time you can see some countries population increase, decrease, and stay about the same over the years. As more countries develop population increases in these areas. Some data showed Nigerias population to increase along with the United States. It also showed Japans to stay about the same or even decline.

A cool look at the DTM and population pyramids

RobersonWG's curator insight, December 27, 2013 10:52 PM

Read the article and review the GIF image data.  Think of these as non-gender specific population pyramids.  How would you explain the growth in our older population age ranges 50+?  Why such a growth in older people and a decline in younger people?

There are many countries that are growing old. The United States of America isn't as much as Japan. Japan must have a low fertility rate because there are more elders. There are some countries that are not getting older Like Nigeria. Nigeria has a very high fertility rate, and children are a huge share of the people in those countries.

Declining Fertility Rates

Declining Fertility Rates | geographic world news | Scoop.it
The American birthrate is at a record low. What happens when having it all means not having children?

Via Seth Dixon
Victoria McNamara's insight:

In recent research people found that some women are content with not having any children. People might think this way because without a child people are able to do more things like go out or travel. Some may not want children due to expenses. If more people do not want children birth rates could decline over the years.

Children are our legacy, they are our future, and if the birth rate keeps depleting then who will be here to be pur next scientists or doctors? Then again a plus to this situation is how much lower the birth rate is, the more resources we have to equally share (i.e oil, food water etc.)

Not to bulky on information but it gets its point across. why are theyre so many social stigmas around having a kid?  A kid cost a little over a million dollars to raise why should it be looked down apon for choosing not to take the finacial and physical hardship. I personally have been on the fence about the subject because Im not a fan of this world is coming to and i wouldnt want to have someone I dearly care about to have to go through it. But thats neither hear nor there.
