      In the book The Next Hundred Million, 1 Joel Kotkin reports that the U.S. fertility rate is half again higher than that of Russia, Germany, and Japan, while remaining well above that of China, Italy, Singapore, Korea, and Eastern Europe. Even more importantly, immigration is adding further to America's population growth.   The U.S. population—currently estimated at million persons—has more than doubled since its level of million. More than just being double in size, the population has become qualitatively different from what it was in As noted by the Population Reference Bureau, “The U.S. is getting bigger, older, and more diverse.”Author: Laura B. Shrestha, Elayne J. Heisler.

    World Population Growth, At the turn of the 21st century, almost 75 million people were being added to the earth every year—about a quarter of the entire U.S. population.   Population ageing will be even more critical during the 21st century. By mid-century, the proportion of those 65 years or older in the world is expected to roughly double, from 7% to 15%. In many countries — such as Italy, Japan and Spain — one person out of three is expected to be 65 years or over.

      (Steven A. Camarota, ("Projecting Immigration's Impact on the Size and Age Structure of the 21st Century American Population", Center for Immigration Studies, ) Our findings are similar to those published by the Pew Hispanic Center in , which concluded that new immigrants and their descendants will account for 82 percent of population. With UN demographers more certain than ever that global population will reach between 10 and 12 billion by the end of the century, the challenge of building a sustainable future seems daunting. But according to Wolfgang Lutz, founding director of the Vienna-based Wittgenstein Center for Demography and Global Human Capital, these projections miss one crucial variable: increasing levels of.

A major Census Bureau study released in January has evoked renewed warnings in the media and among some population analysts that the U.S. faces population decline in the next century if it does not increase fertility and/or raise immigration.

The basic problem is that every chapter is the subject of whole shelves of books, and putting them all in one book cannot possibly do them justice/5(K).

The end of the 20th century was the start of the information age. As the 21st century picked up steam, all of that information (some might say information glut) meant the rise of big data on everything from customer behavior on social sites or geo-location habits.

This data meant that the need for data scientists grew quite rapidly. Public Health and Aging: Trends in Aging United States and Worldwide The median age of the world's population is increasing because of a decline in fertility and a year increase in the average life span during the second half of the 20th century (1).These factors, combined with elevated fertility in many countries during the 2 decades after World War II (i.e., the "Baby Boom"), will.
