Unemployment rates began to increase. Over time, Reagan had increased taxes 11 times, mainly on the middle class. When Reagan had left office, he had tripled the national debt of United States. This had affected the United States and led to several issues later on. This is the reason Reaganomics had both aided some and destroyed others.
The differences recorded an all-time high levels during the Barack Obama presidency and studies are showing significant increases only a year into the Donald Trump presidency. Surprisingly, traditional societal divisions such as ethnicity, race, gender, education, and religious lines have all been dwarfed greatly by the political and ideological polarization within the government and at the societal levels alike. A survey done by Pew Research Centre over the last two decades with a capacity of 5000 adult constituents of different states has shown that there has been a significant increase in political and ideological differences which show significant increases as time passes
Ironically, some speculate that is one of the ways that Asian American stereotypes are to its host’s detriment. In America, there has been a drastic uptick in Asian immigrants. In ten years from 1990, Asian naturalised citizens raised to a quarter of the American immigrant population.
In England and Wales, for instance, the number of revoked conditional releases has increased more than three or fourfold over the last years (Padfield, 2012; Collings, 2007; Padfield & Maruna, 2006). In the United States, parole violators accounted for 35% of the total number of incarcerations in 2008, compared to 18% in 1980 (Steen et al., 2013; Steen & Opsal, 2007). This sharp rise cannot only be explained by an increased reoffending of this group, as the most
From Statistics provided by the Department of Commerce from the years of 1949 to 1959, a steady increase is seen in the GNP, which shows the nation’s overall wealth (Document G). These numbers suggest the economy booming soon after the war, meaning that even during the recession of 1953 people had money enough and steady jobs to support their lifestyles. This was done during Eisenhower’s Administration, and the statistics show that the tactics he chose to increase the GNP worked, as it went up almost $500 in 10 years. Though the GNP went up, the government also spent much more money than previously, even on things such as the Interstate and Highway System. This system was put in place as a defense mechanism in June 1956, and was widely recognized across the nation as a grand idea to pull the nation back together.
(US Census Bureau, 2011) , found some that countries divorce increase like the United States, the crude divorce rate doubled from 2.2 per 1000 people in 1960 to 5.2 in 1980, and dropped to 3.6 in 2007 (US Census Bureau, 2011).In the UK, a similar trend is observed. The refined divorce rate (measured in 1000 married individuals) climbed from 5.9 per 1000 married individuals in 1971, to 11.9 in 1981, and 11.1 in 2010(Rogers, 2011). A study on the phenomenon of divorce in Hong Kong, 2014.Hong Kong is not the only Asian city that observe a rise in number of divorces over the past few decades. Our neighboring cities in Asia observed an increasing trend as well. The increase is remarkably apparent in 1990-2000s, and slowed down a bit over the past 5 years.
From 1800 to 1850, America experienced a lot of geography, population, and capita growth. For one, the geographic size not only doubled, but triple because of the introduction of 4 million slaves and 2 million immigrants. Additionally, in the thirty-one of the states, fifteen of which were acquired in the last 50 years, the capita per home had doubled. The eastern United States was growing in number, and to accommodate new life, people began to move west. Accompanied by the technological innovations of the day people were now able to experience much more when they were outside of their small towns.
4. The change of population 4.1 The huge influx of Chinese The immigration and Nationality act of 1965 results in the booming of Chinese population in America. The number of Chinese in America was 237,292 in 1960, and it grew to be 435,062 by the end of 1970, and 806,027 in 1980. During 1969-1977, the number of Chinese immigrants mounted to 196,000. The Chinese take a greater and greater proportion of America population, with 0.14% in 1960(before the act), 0.21% in 1970, 0.35% in 1980 and 0.67% in 1990.
The latest census report in 2000 reported a population of 280 million, with the current count being 302 million people which has doubled since 1950 (Williams, S.J.,Torrens, P.R., 2008). The population of people has grown since 1950 and taking a look at certain data shows how it is being affected. The size and age of the population as well as a look at disease patterns over the years shows how it affects the population and what type of healthcare services would be needed. A look at fertility of a population, data of birthrates, deaths and the services used by mothers, infants and children, will also affect the health services needed. People are living more healthier lifestyles and are involved in more social activities and are therefore living
Over 40 million people in the United States are foreign-born immigrants. They represent 13 percent of the total population resided in the country, and they are increasing constantly. However, over the past few years, many immigrant languages have declined in number. Strong pressure of monolingualism towards immigrants has led to extinction of their mother tongue. Bilingualism in the United States has been changed over one or two generations, from monolingualism in a minority language to monolingualism in English1.
Immigration in through Texas has always been at a high number, do too the border of Mexico touching Texas. However, the rate of illegal immigrants has increased drastically over the past couple of years. Studies performed by the Federation for American Reform (FAIR), shows that between 2010 and 2013 the number of illegal immigrants has increased by 70,000. With the rate of illegal immigrants, increasing at this rate, the taxpaying citizens, are taking a major hit. Illegal Immigration doesn’t seem like it would cause a major issue because they do make up 8.9 percent of the state’s labor force, based on the studies of the Pew Research Center.
Obama’s Immigration Policy: Presidential Memos to order Deferred Action Within the last few years, immigration has been a huge topic for debate. Americans have seen a large increase in the numbers of immigrants, specifically illegal immigrants, over the last few decades. That has many citizens wondering what has changed. One of the most recent changes has to do with an executive policy known as deferred action. Some of the questions Americans should be asking are: How does the deferred action policy differ from previous immigration policies, how was it set into motion, and how will the changes impact America short term and in the future.
There are 283,000 Hispanics incarcerated which makes up 15 percent of the inmate population. From 1985 to 1995, Hispanic imprisonment rose by 219 percent with annual increase of 12.3 percent. Hispanics are usually four times more likely to go to jail as white men, but less likely than African Americans. According to the Bureau of Justice statistics, Hispanics are the fastest growing minority in the prison system. In states such as Connecticut and Pennsylvania, Hispanic men incarceration rate is seven times higher than whites; in Massachusetts and North Dakota the rate is six times higher.
