Homelessness increases the chances of degrading health and other illnesses. If better housing was available, then people who are homeless would not have bad physical health issues because they are in a place better suited for healthier life; meanwhile, their mental health can improve because they are in a better position. Single homeless mothers with kids to take care of believe that education and jobs with higher wages can get them and others off the streets (Gültekin et. al, 2016, p. 404). If better jobs were offered to the homeless, then unemployment rates could drop to even lower percentages.

From 2000-2010, the cost increased from $4,680 per employee per year in 2000, to $9,869 in 2010; about an 8% vs. 2% yearly average increase. Schramm and Windham invited John to come to a meeting with them the following week. This meeting would consist of healthcare providers, insurers, and employers, and the topic would be “implications of the healthcare reform”.

According to Coale (cited by Ehrlich and Lui, 1997), England 's population doubled in the two centuries before the Industrial Revolution which yielded an average rate increase of 0.35 percent. There was an unprecedented population growth in the European history during the last decades of the 18th century but it began to decrease during the 1800, this reduction was brought by decreases in the national birth rates that occurred in France and the United States (Ehrlich and Lui,
Name: Instructors’ Name: Course: Date: Population Growth and Aging The world is on the edge of witnessing a demographic milestone. Since long ago children always outnumbered their elders but the trend is changing, and soon we may have the elderly outnumbering children. The age structure of most nations in the world has been altering as persons have fewer offspring and live longer. The trend is driven by the decline in fertility rates, remarkable increase in life expectancy, and improvement in healthcare provision. According to a report by the World Health Organization, the number people above 65 years of age is projected to grow from an approximate 524 million in the year 2010 to about 1.5 billion in 2050 (2).

Natural increase occurs when the birth rate exceeds death rate and usually accounts for population growth. Surprisingly, even with a huge drop in global fertility rate from 4.45 in 1970 to around 2.5 in 2014 (The Astounding Drop in Global Fertility Rates Between 1970 And 2014, 2015), the world’s population is still increasing. This is due to longer lifespans of people as medical technology advances and people leading a healthier lifestyle. This is supported by an increase of global life expectancy at birth from 48 years in 1950 to 69 years in 2015. (Chapter 1: Main Factors Driving Population Growth, 2015).
A significant increase in trade receivables turnover indicates improvement in the process of cash collection on credit sales.

The elderly population of Maharashtra has increased dramatically from 8.45 million (8.7 percent to total population) in 2001 to 11.11 million (9.9 percent to total population) in 2011, showing a significant growth of 31.37 percent, on other hand share of working age group (15-59 years) population has registered only 24 percent increase and youth population group (0-14 years) has registered a negative growth rate. This shows that the number and proportion of elderly citizens in the total population of the state has sharply increased in last few decades. At the same time the rate of ageing is not uniform across the districts of the state. Some districts particularly lower on the scale of economic development are at the forefront of this transition, where as the proportion of elderly one’s in economically developed districts is low. Such uneven significant shift in the proportion of elderly population in Maharashtra is mounting pressure on variety of socio-economic and healthcare policy challenges.
