In 1990, the world 's population was estimated at 5.3 billion, of which more than 3/4 lived in the less developed countries. Almost all the developing countries possess high population growth potential characterised by high birth rate and high but declining death rate. Death rates in developing countries have fallen, compared to the past, due to improved health conditions and control of major infevtious diseases. On the average annual population growth rate in developing countrues is 2% as compared with about 0.7% indeveloped countries. Birth rates are generally high in the order of 30-40 per 1000 whereas those for advances countries are less than half that figure.
In other words, the older the individual, the higher chance of becoming poor. Across OECD countries, the elderly poverty rate is 11.2 and 14.7 for age group of 66 to 75 and over 75 years consecutively. The oldest-old, the elderly of age 80 and above are the most likely to be suffered from poverty because hey are less capable of working than the other old age (United Nations, 2015). Another striking point is that the oldest-old, the most vulnerable group, is growing at a faster pace than the overall old age group. This shocking fact has raised a concern for the government to prevent the severe old age poverty.
Croatia and Serbia belong to demographically oldest countries not only in Europe but in the world mainly due to decades long below replacement fertility accompanied by significant rise of life expectancy at birth in the last couple of decades and mostly by permanent emigration of people in the most vital age. Due to the last decade of migration, the age structure has altered severely and if we observe the populations of the two countries as a whole, during the last ten years Croatia and Serbia lost more than 5% of its population only because of migration. The aim of this project is to find an explanation for the extraordinarily rapid emigration in Croatia and Serbia and its effect on population ageing during the last decade and the effect it will have on future for demography of those and similar transitional countries, but also to explain how this migration will affect receiving countries
The ageing population of the world is a new phenomenon that, even, the richest and most powerful countries, are trying to understand. The ageing people are no longer restricted to a small portion of the population. However, there are still differences between ageing in developed and underdeveloped countries. This is due to the fact that the increasing number of older people in less developed countries is due to the high number of births during the early twentieth century. But the ageing population of European countries, in recent decades, is due to the relatively high birth rate in first quarter of the century, coupled with the decreasing rate of mortality in all age groups.
Usually the finance costs go up with the provision of a longer credit period to the debtors, but it also promotes sales. S.A. Talke’s debtor days are much higher than those of its competitor. This is due to Talke relying on two major customers. These two customers have extended credit terms and represent about half of the accounts receivables at the year end. Payable Days (Payables / COS X 365) S.A. Talke Basem Year 2011 2012 2013 2013 Payable days 141 95 165 58 Payable days helps to evaluate the company’s liquidity.
Today the worlds population is growing at 1.15% per year which is 80500000 people annually. Some of the most populated countries of today are India,China,Russia,Brazil and South Africa these countries are also known as the BRIC nations. Population growth does increase demand nevertheless it also volleys workforces with a lot of extra workers, this unfortunately pauperizes wages and increases poverty. It is impossible to see a correlation between population growth and development in 2 or 3 years, In order to see an correlation we have to look about 20 years back so that we can distinguish the impact of all those births entering workforces. Rapid population growth still remains in numerous amount of developing countries.
Industry has experienced dynamic changes in the last decade in terms of changing environment and structure which propelled it to a high growth trajectory. However, India per capita consumption of paints is still abysmally low at 1.5Kg/annum compared to world average of 15Kg and 25Kg for US. It is even lower than Sri Lanka with per capita consumption of 3.5/Kg. This however indicates tremendous opportunity for paint industry which is currently highly
POPULATION AGEING AND SOCIAL HEALTH 2.1 Demographic shift – transition towards a much older population CVD occurs more frequently in the aging population which is most advanced in the most highly developed countries.  Population ageing arises from 3 major demographic effects: increase in average life expectancy, declining fertility and migration.  The substantial increase in average life expectancy is a phenomenon that occurs due to the reduction of infant mortality, control of infectious diseases and the enhancement of sanitation, living standards and nutrition. In 2050, the number of the elderly is projected to be five times higher than today and will represent 4% of the total population.  Elderly people aged 80 and over is the
AGED- In India, the population of the elderly is growing rapidly and is emerging as a serious area of concern for the government and the policy planners. The vulnerability among the elderly is due to an increased incidence of illness and disability, economic dependency upon their spouses, children and other younger family members. 6. DISABLED PERSONS- Persons with disabilities face several forms of discrimination and has reduced access to education, employment and other socio-economic opportunities. In India, there is an increase of proportion of disabled population.
Some vulnerable groups also face specific problems. For example, indigenous peoples have high illiteracy rates and are affected by the encroachment of modern technology and cultures onto traditional norms and practices. Fishers face continuing reduction in their catches and they have few opportunities or skills outside of fishing. Women have limited roles outside of marketing and family responsibilities. RURAL POVERTY IN THE PHILIPPINES In the Philippines, poverty remains mainly as a rural phenomenon, but urban poverty is on the rise.
