Molly Howard's insight:

This page is talking about what the estimated population will be in the year 2020. It says that the population will grow slightly by the time we reach 2020. The life expectancy is also estimated to go up as well as the growth in jobs. This would be important for people to know and to see what is going to be happening within the next 6-7 years.

According to selfstorage.com the U.S. population will be made up of about 40% minorities in the year 2020. Many big cities are expected to shrink, while others will grow in size. Some things will increase, including the overall population of the U.S.
AJ Kingery's comment, October 3, 2013 6:14 AM
I believe the population will grow when the year is 2020. I don't think the jobs will increase because if the population gets better how are more jobs going to be open. I still think the population will grow.

Factors affecting populations

Which factors affect populations? Find out here

Molly Howard's insight:

This article talks about what is affecting America's population. It talks about how Imigration (people coming into the country) and Emigration (people leaving the country) affects the population. The emancipation of women also affects the population because it has caused a delay in the child bearing age because of how women are more likely to go to college and get a job before having a child. There are many ways that our poplation is affected and this article talks about many of them.

In this article, it doesn't actually explain the population growth of North America or any country. It instead explains about the different factors affecting it. The difference for Immigration and Emigration affecting any country. It even highlights how agricultural change affects population, like how with a chain reaction it leads to higher birthrates. Even the emancipation of women affects it if you read the article, you can find out!

Will immigration matter in Nov.? No y Si

Will immigration matter in Nov.? No y Si | Population Growth | Scoop.it

by JOSE CRUZ, Being Latino

 

Two weeks ago, Time magazine devoted their cover to proclaiming that Latinos would decide the next President of the United States. With the growth of our population and our presence in key swing states such as Florida and our massive presence in huge electoral states such as California, this should come as no surprise.

 

As the herd thins on who will be the GOP candidate, none of the remaining leaders is willing to change the right-wing lock step on anti-immigrant policies. The GOP is making a strategic gamble that immigration will not be a decisive factor in the Latino vote and in many ways they are correct.

 

“It’s the economy stupid,” was President Clinton’s famous mantra that lead him and his party to take back the White House after 12 years of Republican control. For those of us on the ground, we know he was right then and he is right now. To the vast majority of eligible voting Latinos, the economy will take center stage. Come November we will be looking to see if once again we can put our trust in the Obama that promised us “Hope” four years ago, or if we want to give the GOP another chance. That will be the key issue that voters have to decide. Democrats will have to remind the country of an unnecessary and costly war in Iraq and the evil of trickle-down economics, while Republicans will simply say “are you better off today than you were four years ago, but never mind what our last guy did.”

 

One mistake I have seen Democrats make time after time is to underestimate the GOP. I expect 2012 will be a closer election than most Dems now believe looking at the GOP front-runners. People are angry at the state of the economy and if the GOP can effectively blame Obama, they could win. This however brings us back to immigration and the Latino vote. Most Latino Republicans I know (and side note here I have some great Latino GOP friends) don’t see immigration as a decisive issue. They vote Republican out of personal economic or social interest. They are the first ones to say – and I agree with them – that if you look at the key social and economic issues the GOP stands for, most Latinos are conservative. But, when the issue of immigration comes to the table and – more importantly – the precise question of what to do with the 11 million undocumented around us, they have trouble excusing their party. Other than saying: “Well, what has Obama done on immigration?” And again they would be right. [MORE]

Molly Howard's insight:

This article talks about immagration from Latinos in the U.S and how having them in our country would affect who our president is. It would affect the presidency because these legal immagrants can vote. If the canidate running for president supports having them in our country then they will more than likely vote for that canidate. These immagrants take up a large ammount of the countrys population and so they will take up a large percentage of the votes.

This article is great in not only telling you about the population growth of North America, but showing you. It tells you things like birthrate and immigration rate. It also talks about infant mortality rate, then summarizes it all up to the total population growth rate. It seperates boys, girls, infants and regular people.

Allie Moore's comment, October 1, 2013 6:42 PM
I think this article is interesting because it just shows you how our world is growing and birth and immigration rates are increasing. More and more people are wanting to come into our country and with the death rates more and more crimes are being committed.

Molly Howard's insight:

This article mostly talks about how immigration affects our country's population very greatly. It talks about how immagration rates are so high that our population is likely to double by the end of the century. It says how immigration is the largest factor contributing to population growth in the U.S. and that our country should do something about that. I agree with the article in saying that we need to make some changes in our immigration policy. If we don't do anything about it then our country may become overly populated.

I thought this article was very interesting and crazy because immigration can making our population DOUBLE by the end of the century. Immigration policies should be more strict.
yongyee yang's comment, September 27, 2013 11:38 AM
I think that this article is pretty important because immigration is our highest influence of a rising population. Also, the fact stated that if our population kept on going up like this, then by 2020, there would be A LOT of people in the U.S.. Enough to make a lot of the current major cities double in population. Those major cities already have a lot of people so doubling it could mean a lot of trouble. I hope that the U.S. can find a good way to take care of this so that their own economy isn't brought down.

I think it is crazy how fast the population is growing and having another NYC will be unbelievable.

Molly Howard's insight:

In this video they talk about the population growth in North America and the problems it is starting. The lady says how North America uses the most ammount of energy and water. The lady talks about how since USA's population is growing, we are using even more of the water and energy. I think people need to be more conservative and use less energy and water to try and help solve this problem.

Brad Bortscheller's curator insight, September 27, 2013 9:19 AM

This article speaks about the problems of pupulation growth. We here in North America use the most energy. We use the most water as well. It says it could go on to lead us to be like Austrailia. This is a problem and while population growth is a good thing, there are negative consequences. We need to be more careful!

It talks about all of the different types of Ethnic Groups, the different languages, the religions, the different ages of all of the population, the growth rate, the birth rate, the death rate, the migration rate, the population number in total and many other things that would be important to know if you are living in the United States.

This page from the CIA website talks about the different aspects of population growth like birth and death rate, the percent growth rate, and other things. It has cool facts like urbanization and the median age of male, female, and both. Population distribution is talked about with New York City, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C. The total fertility rate stated on this page is 2.06 children per family. It even talks about things like drinking water source quality. Very insightful for not only the growth, but why.

Molly Howard's insight:

This article talks about how there will be less immigrants and babies all because of how the economy is poor and the unemployment rate is high. These two things are going to make our country smaller than predicted in the future. People aren't having as many children because they aren't employed and they don't have enough money to support a child. This is making the population decrease. I think the government needs to do something to create more jobs and get the economy going.

allee kowzan's comment, October 3, 2013 6:10 AM
I agree with your insight. I think that the government should do something about the unemployment rate. Its also sad that people aren't having as many children but it's also better for the economy.
Alexandria Goodyk's comment, October 3, 2013 7:40 AM
I totally agree with what you said about them creating more jobs and get the economy going. It's sad that people aren't having children because they don't have enough money to support them. It's not good for our population to decrease.
Rayden Duncan's curator insight, October 3, 2013 7:20 PM

This matters because as the population ages there are more people retire and are put onto social security, the working population will pay some of the cost.
