Populations in Transition - gender equality. This table is partially useful, for % of government seats and ratio of female earned income, but be careful using the first three columns, contraception, Life expectancy and no. of years in school (you would need to find the statistics for males as a comparison).

Damon Recagno's curator insight, October 13, 2017 3:30 PM

This site relates to the topic of Cities & Countries Methods for Tackling a Declining Natural Growth Rate because it looks at a country (China) who implemented a one child policy in order to slow population growth but is now dealing with the consequences of these actions while trying to find ways to increase the natural growth rate of the country. Until quite recently China had a one child policy in order to slow its rapid growth. At the time this was implanted political leaders thought that the idea was a good one because they had successfully reduced population numbers in a short amount of time. However, as learned in class by looking at population trends in the global north, having a smaller cohort of younger individuals and a larger cohort of older individuals posses severe problems. Such problems include a dwindling work force, a rapidly aging society and lower fertility rates, all of which were experienced by China as a result of the one child policy. All these factors hit China hard forcing the government to rethink its one child policy. China's population currently sits around 1.3billion however, if the policy was never set in place it would be closer to 1.7billion. Additionally, with the lifting of the one child policy it has been estimated that an additional 95milion births will occur per year (Hinson 2013). Although China's lifting of the one child policy is still relatively new, it is good to see an economic power house realize its mistakes and begin to make corrections to fix said mistakes.


    

Jasmin Ogilvie's comment, October 31, 2017 11:31 PM
I had no idea that China was looking at removing the one child policy. Great insight on the issue and its problems.
Adam Skiland's comment, November 1, 2017 3:30 PM
It is interesting how you add a view of economics to something that can have a real emotional impact. It's strange how we often view a case like this as one that is just raw numbers rather than how these people truly feel.

With a population of more "gray heads" than ever, it seems as if the well-being of the world is in jeopardy. However, I believe that we have a chance to save our societies by leveling out our numbers. We need the better economics and environments that this leveling would produce. - K.W.

This site relates to the topic Cities & Countries Methods for Tackling a Declining Natural Growth Rate because it looks at the United States and analyzes its population demographics along with the ways in which the country is tackling a declining natural growth rate. This site mentions reason similar to those discussed in class which explain why the American population is aging so rapidly such as a baby boom and bust cycle, the increasing life expectancy of Americans and lower fertility rates which are all to blame for this shift in age composition within America. However, the United States like many other countries and cities around the world have turned towards immigration with the hopes of attracting younger individuals who are willing to work and want families that meet or surpass the 2.1 replacement rate. This method of utilizing those who want into the country has in fact has proven to be very successful in the United States, seeing as births to foreign born American citizens make up one third of the net natural increase. The same method is applied to many, if not all of the major cities across Canada.  

Alex Sobolewski's comment, November 15, 2017 3:32 PM
I've always felt that emphasis on population growth ignores that growth can also come from productivity increases. This requires however heavy investment from state and business, which aren't favoured by the richer class who don't want to have their profits cut into by other costs.
