What Are Global Demographic Trends? (SOLVED)

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA), is already 64% urbanized 😊 Much of the region’s future urban growth—in absolute terms—is projected to occur in the region’s primary cities although faster growth—in relative terms—is projected to occur in the region’s secondary cities 👍 Conflict and climate-driven migration as well as cross-border movement driven by search for economic opportunity are unique considerations in the region and have been overriding some secular urbanisation trends in a subset of countries 🤓 MENA’s population is expected to grow rapidly over the next decade, although aging isn’t a problem yet. The region’s youth bulge, if managed well, could present a significant demographic dividend with potential higher growth rates, especially in urban areas. [1]
As Joseph Coughlin noted in a recent MIT Technology Review issue entitled “Old Age is Over if You Want It”, of all the big mega-trend challenges facing humanity in the next few decades, changing global demography is the most predictable and, at one level, the most certain. There is still much to learn about the magnitude of the challenges humanity will face from climate change and AI. Important questions about the timing and nature of these challenges. However, the demographers seem to be fairly certain that there is a big problem. Changes in our population growth rate and structure and we mostly know These changes are coming when and where.

Fantastic report by pewresearch.org It is evident that Millennials live very differently than previous generations. They’re slow to adopt many of the traditional markers of adulthood. The first time in more than 130 years, young adults are more likely to be living in their parents’ home than in any other living arrangement. In fact, a larger share of them are living with their parents than with a romantic partner – marking a significant historical shift. More broadly, young adult geographic mobility is at its lowest level in 50 years, even though today’s young adults are less likely than previous generations of young adults to be married, to own a home or to be parents, all of which are traditional obstacles to moving.

Kassie Rader says at royalsociety.orgBefore the demographic transition contraception was common and most women had six to seven children. As these countries experienced rapid socioeconomic and economic changes, the declines in fertility began in MDCs around the turn of the 20th century. Children were born at a high cost (e.g. Education costs rose, and economic value of children (e.g. The decline in labour security and old age security led to couples limiting their family sizes. In the 1970s, the’s MDCs having completed their fertility transition. In Asia, Latin America and Asia the fertility transitions began in late 1960s. They are almost complete. Figure 2 shows that sub-Saharan Africa experienced very little reproductive change between 1960 and 2020. Future population growth in Africa will continue to be driven by high fertility.
