African Americans are over represented in the criminal justice system based on their population amount compared to whites (Toth et al, 2008).

Population: A Vital Indicator of Economic Growth - Economic growth in a city, state, or country is characterized by steady growth in the productive capacity of the economy or a growth of national income (Fernandez- Villaverde, 2001). The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rate is most commonly used to measure economic growth because it is a reflection of the total change in a country’s national output (Filardo, 1999). This growth rate is used to predict the direction of an economy. A positive growth rate indicates a positive economy with more jobs, consumption and income while a negative growth indicates an economic decline (Filardo, 1999)....   [tags: Economics]

Sterilization prevents gestation, the animals’ reproductive cycle, from happening within the animal. And in the long run, this is why sterilization has such an exponential effect on the populations....   [tags: pet, animal shelters, sterilization, overcrowding]
