Women Empowerment as a Means of Population Control - ... This was because poor women had a lot of children to accommodate their economic deficiencies. This argument of economic deficiencies, suggests that poverty is a probable reason why women were having so many children. Sharif argues that reducing poverty may go a long way in reducing fertility rates to control population growth. Women who have an education are more likely to have low childbearing rates than women without education. With fewer children, women have more time to devote to paid employment, small business ventures and even community work....   [tags: Women's Rights ]

Population: A Vital Indicator of Economic Growth - ... In this regime, there is a negative relationship between the level of output and the growth rate of the population. According to Malthus when population size is small, the standard of living will be high, and population will grow as a natural result. The Malthus Growth model implies that in the absence of changes in technology or in the availability of land, the size of the population will be self-regulating. Any increase in the availability of resources would be offset by increases in the size of the population....   [tags: Economics]

The Declining Population in Europe and the Decline of the Family - ... Having more children is seen as reducing the quality of those. (Weeks 214-215) The fertility rate for Europe is 1.6 but when women are asked their ideal number of children it comes to 2.36 well above replacement. This indicates outside factors rather than just lack of desire for children, though it does have its impact. (No Babies) Peter Kohler has come to the conclusion that countries with higher participation of women in the labor market have higher fertility rates which seems contradictory but when the policies of these countries are examined it is clear that these countries with both high fertility and high labor force participation by women have governmental policies that support working mothers....   [tags: Sociology ]

Food, Population and Environmental Problems: Brazil - It is a fairly universal strategy to examine past and present trends in order to forecast the future. This can be commonly observed in everyday existence, as people rely on previous climate trends and recent weather phenomenon in order to make decisions such as how to dress and mode of transportation to use to go to work. Likewise, by employing the use of past and present data and trends, policymakers can make predictions of the future in order to create more effective policies, as well as find better “prescriptions” to solve existing problems (Lecture, 4/1/2010)....   [tags: Government Analysis ]

A Forgotten Population: Seniors with Developmental Disabilities - ... Thombs suggested local agencies generally justify this action because they lack adequate staff who can handle the additional investigative work involved in researching a fair housing complaint (personal communication, March 30, 2011). Still others cite that staff has not received the appropriate training to handle such cases, according to Thombs (personal communication, March 30, 2011). Thombs reported that the problem with this argument, however, is that agencies such as the National Fair Housing Alliance offer training to local government agencies at no charge (personal communication, March 30, 2011)....   [tags: Disability ]

Environment Essay: The Population Explosion - The Population Explosion According to the Population Reference Bureau, in 1991, there were about 5.4 billion people in the world. The global birth to death rate was 27/9, meaning that for every person that dies, three more babies are born. From 1990 to 1991, the population increased by 95 million people, and now has continued to grow at that rate. This may appear to be no danger, but if one were to think of it as a pond doubling its amount of lily pads for 40 days, they'd see it differently. It would start out with one lily pad, the next day it has two, and on the 39th day it is half filled....   [tags: Environmental Pollution Preservation] 3628 words

The Earth’s capacity to support people is determined both by natural constraints and by human choices concerning economics, environment, culture (including values and politics), and demography. Human carrying capacity is more difficult to estimate than some of the standard demographic indicators, like expectation of life or the total fertility rate, because human carrying capacity depends on populations and activities around the world....   [tags: Papers] 3473 words

Population in the world Today - Population in the world Today Probably the most pressing concern of the modern world — both environmentally and socially — is the escalating global population. The geometrical growth in numbers over the last century, when estimated, presents an ominous picture of massive, unsustainable growth and accompanying famines and health crises. Yet, to simply follow the current trend is naive, and informed estimates of population trends are increasingly predicting a less disastrous future. The latest study shows an 85% chance that global population will peak before 2100, and predicts with 60% certainty that this peak will be less than 10 billion, compared with a population of 6 billion today....   [tags: essays papers]

The cornucopia paradigm makes the assumption that the more humans are the better because then there will be more ideas and technological advances; the human population growth is unlimited. This assumption is unrealistic because with an overabundance of people, the resources they would need to survive would diminish as they already are. The result of this kind of growth would mean there would be six quadrillion people on earth....   [tags: Papers] 378 words
