US Hispanics Led Population Rise | Population Growth | Scoop.it

The Hispanic population grew by 43% to 50.5m, or 16% of the total, while the non-Hispanic population grew 5%.

The non-Hispanic white population grew only 1%, shrinking as a portion of the total to 64%, down from 69% in 2000.

Even when a population grows that dosen't necessarily mean the job rate will follow leading to an increase in unemployment

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.

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.

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.

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.

Population Growth in Metropolitan America Since 1980

Population Growth in Metropolitan America Since 1980 | Population Growth | Scoop.it
The twists and turns of metropolitan population growth are reviewed in William Frey’s examination of recently released Census Bureau data separating the bubble and bust years of the past decade.

 

Key urban demographic changes from 1980-2010:

--Metropolitan growth in both the Sun Belt and Snow Belt tapered in the 2000s, after accelerating in the 1990s.

--Growth slowed considerably during the latter part of the 2000s, especially in “bubble economy” metropolitan areas.

--Suburbs continued to grow more rapidly than cities in the 2000s, but growth rates for both types of places declined from their 1990s levels.

--Exurban and outer suburban counties experienced a population boom and bust in the 2000s.

--Hispanic dispersion to “new destination” metropolitan areas and suburbs dropped sharply in the late 2000s.

This is a map that shows the rate of change in the U.S., population wise. The most growth occured on the western and eastern coast's. There were a few places with a decreasing population.

Canada Has Fastest Population Growth in G8, Driven By Immigration and Led by ...CICS NewsThe Prairie provinces, prospering from their abundance of natural resources, led Canada in population growth in the year ending June 30th, 2012.

Via Trisha Klancar
Rayden Duncan's insight:

Canada's population growth is the highest for a G8 largely due to immigration. The Canadian province of Alberta's populaction growth seems to correlate with it's heighst GDP per capita augmented by high production of oil from the Athabasca oil sands. Due to a high proformance in the reasourse secter low unemplayment rate is a result.

Aleasha Reed's curator insight, October 2, 2013 12:07 PM

Canada has the fastest growing population with a rate of 1.1%. The U.S. was second with 0.7%. The growth seemed to occur because of immigration levels. Canada has the highest immigration levels too.

The population of Canada has grown again, surpassing 35 million people over the past year, and Alberta is driving a majority of that growth.
Rayden Duncan's insight:

Due to Alberta's  economic growth immigration is contributing the a population increases and with being relatively young there is more able bodied workers for consrction A higher birth rate also leads the need for more schools, classrooms, and teachers.

The Great Growth Disconnect: Population Growth Does Not Equal Economic Growth

The Great Growth Disconnect: Population Growth Does Not Equal Economic Growth | Population Growth | Scoop.it
It can create a troubling illusion of prosperity. (Growth Disconnect: Population Growth ≠ Economic Growth http://t.co/xZvarIPBrP Is the lack of correlation also in Canada?
Rayden Duncan's insight:

A higher populaction ≠ Econmic growth. If a growing populaction led to economic growth an example of Canada with a populaction of 35 million wouldn't have nearly as good of economy with a GPD of 1.821 trillion USD. With a large population growth and  number of job staying the same could lead to people not beaing able to find a job leading to unemployment that would slow down an economy.

Number of doctors in Canada at an all time high | CTV Winnipeg

Number of doctors in Canada at an all time high | CTV Winnipeg | Population Growth | Scoop.it

"There are more practising doctors in Canada than ever before, with nearly 70,000 physicians working in the country last year, a new report finds.

As well the growth in doctors is outpacing the growth of the population as a whole.

The report from the Canadian Institute for Health Information reveals that while the physician population in Canada increased by 2.3 per cent between 2009 and 2010, the Canadian population as a whole grew by only 1.1 per cent.

The growth in the number of doctors in Canada has consistently outpaced population growth over the last five years, CIHI says. In 1980, there were 151 active physicians per 100,000 Canadians; in 2006, there were 190; and in 2010, there were 203.

Although we now have more physicians than ever in Canada, Michael Hunt, CIHI's Director of Pharmaceuticals and Health Workforce Information Services points out that the numbers alone do not tell the whole story.

"The demand for physician services depends on a number of factors, including the health care needs of Canadians, the way care is organized, the number of hours doctors are working and the scope of practice of other health professionals," he said in a statement.

In 2010, Canadian faculties of medicine awarded a record number of medical degrees: 2,448. That's an increase of 55 per cent over 2000.

In the past five years, the number of Canadian-trained physicians increased by 9.5 per cent, while the number of international medical graduates increased by 18 per cent. That added more than 2,500 physicians to the Canadian supply.

The report also revealed that fewer physicians are migrating both within Canada and out of the country. Physician migration out of Canada decreased by 16 per cent between 2006 and 2010. In total, 173 doctors left for another country while 202 doctors returned.

CIHI also reports that the average family doctor grossed $239,000 in 2010, while the average specialist's gross income was $341,000. Between 2005 and 2010, average payments to doctors increased by 21.5 per cent, or about four per cent a year on average.

Some of that income goes toward covering doctors' overhead, such as office expenses, staff salaries and other costs.

The figures are also an average of what doctors earned in fee-for-service payments. That that makes up only about 75 per cent of the payments awarded to doctors in Canada. Doctors also receive payments through family health networks and through salaries in certain hospital settings, a swell as by other means."

Rayden Duncan's insight:

It seems interesting to me that Canada has a growing number of doctors even outpaceing Canada's population growth at 2.3% compared to 1.1%. The way care is organized also effects the deamand for docters as well as health care needs. Doctors also have an average payment increased by about 4% per year.  docters Payments are recived though health networks.
