China is the world's largest population, estimated to be around 1.24 billion in 1998. It grows at a rate of 1.3% per year or 44,100 people a day. There are now more people living in China than whole world 150 years ago. The population broke the billion mark in the 1982 census, the results of which provided the justification for the strict one-child policy which effectively curbed rapid population growth. In the 1990 census, China counted 1.133 billion people, over the next decades the world population will inevitably age.
Current evidence shows that this theory may not be far from the truth. The world population reached 6 billion on October 12, 1999, and is expected to reach 9.3 billion by 2050! The impact of population growth is already felt by a majority of nations. The U.S. population has increased by 78% since 1950. Growing at 3,000,000 per year, U.S. population is expected to approach half a billion people in 50 years.
These losses were partially offset by employment increases experienced in the construction and finance sectors. Growth in employment in 2000 was 1.9 million; in 1999, the increase in employment equaled 2.8 million. Changes For most of 2000, unemployment remained between 3.9 and 4.1 percent of the labor force. In the first three-quarters of 2000, the numbers of individuals in the labor force were i... ... middle of paper ... ...te of growth in real GDP increased to 3.9, with the last three years being over 4.3 percent per year. A five percent increase from 1999 to 2000 is the highest level of yearly increase since 1984.
Today, the number is one in 19. In some states, such as California and Washington, the number is closer to one in 10 (Melting Pot). Since 1960 the number of mixed race marriages has doubled every decade (Love’s Revolution). Interracial couples only represented a surprising 2% of all couples in 1990, with interracial marriages representing only 4% (YGGDRASIL). In 1998, there were 1,348,000 interracial married couples.
By the year 2002, the number had tripled to 54.9 million. Even in 2001 when global terrorism had a big impact in world travel, UKresidents visits abroad continued to increase at 2.5%. During this 20 year period, the number of nights spent abroad by UKresidents, rose from 262 million to 595 million nights. The projection into the next decade, suggests a continued increase in the region of 2-3%. When people travel abroad, people spend money, the increase in travel over the last 20 years has averaged 5.3% each year, over the same time, spending has increased by 10.6%.
PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) has published research results, which illustrate that net migration has made an increasingly positive contribution since 1996. It has doubled over the past five years, compared to the natural increase. Estimates from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) show that in 2004 a record of 582 000 people came to live in the UK from elsewhere in the world. About 494 000 immigrants were not British citizens; the remaining 88 000 were British citizens returning from living abroad. The majority of immigrants were Asian or African citizens.
Since 1950, U.S. population has nearly doubled - growing from 151 million to over 294 million today. If present trends continue, our population will exceed 400 million by the year 2050. Immigration contributes over one million people to the U.S. population annually. The total foreign-born population in the U.S. is now 31.1 million, a record 57 percent increase since 1990. About 8 million of those are here illegally--a 4.5 million increase since 1990.
About two-thirds of this 900 million increase was added within the last 50 years. In another word, the population has tripled since the People's Republic of China was grounded. Today the mainland China alone contributes to at least 20% of the world's population. It is also very well known all over the world that in China couples nowadays are not allowed to have more than one child. This policy was first hinted by Jiang Zemin in a 1979 speech and was in place nationwide by 1981.
Should immigration into the United States be limited? Immigrants are a large and growing factor in the stubborn level of poverty seen in the United States over the past two decades because newcomers to the country are more likely to be poor and to remain so longer than in the past, according to a new study. The report, to be released today by the Center for Immigration Studies, says the number of impoverished people in the nation's immigrant-headed households nearly tripled from 2.7 million in 1979 to 7.7 million in 1997. During that same period, the number of poor households headed by immigrants increased by 123 percent while the number of immigrant households increased by 68 percent, according to the study. The share of immigrants living in poverty rose from 15.5 percent to 21.8 percent, the report notes, a change that some analysts say holds troubling implications for the nation's future.
