India’s Demographic Dividend

...was 472 million in 2006, was around 526 million in 2011 and is expected to be around 653 million in 2031. In just about 3 years, 25% of the world’s working population will be Indian. Human beings tend to have a higher proportion of consumption in their childhood days, whereas, they save the most in their working years. Thus, the dependency ratio has gone down with the rise in the average savings rate. The saving rate of India has been on an increase since 2003 and currently stands at 33% of the GDP of the nation. The greater savings are expected to fuel higher investment rates contributing to growth of the nation. While the above is the supply side of the story, there are contributions from the demand side as well. The shift in demographics with rise in youth in the nation, there has been a steady rise in disposable income in the hands of individuals. This has led to a change in lifestyle of the individuals leading to growth in demand for consumption of goods to meet more than the basic needs of the individuals. In order to cater to this demand, there has been a drastic rise in consumerism in the country. Today domestic as well as international companies are all flocking to meet the Indian consumer’s demands and thus, contributing to growth of industries and the nation....

...7 Demographic Paper The Impact of the Aging Population Your Name HCS/490 Axia College of University of Phoenix 7 The aging population continues to grown as the baby boomers reach retirement age and this affects the healthcare industry tremendously. The need for specialists, more testing, medications, and skilled healthcare is rising along with this population. This causes the cost of healthcare to increase as well as the demand on healthcare workers. This summary will discuss how the aging population affects the area in which I live including: healthcare related challenges, the impact on the healthcare market, marketing needs and services needed by this population, and how these challenges can be addressed. Healthcare in Ohio is being impacted by the aging population. According to Strunk, Ginsburg & Banker (2006), “ As a result of the baby-boom generation—the leading edge of which is now turning age sixty—the proportion of the U.S population older than age sixty-five is projected to grow from 12.4 percent in 2005 to 14.5 percent in 2015 and 18.2 percent in 2025. Although the aging of the baby-boom generation is a key factor in the aging of the population as a whole, increasing life expectancy is also important” (para. 2). To be more specific the aging population in Ohio is expected to go from 13 percent to 20 percent over the next thirty years (, 2010). The increased amount of people that are age......

...Demographic Paper Demographic Paper Axia College of University of Phoenix Health Care Consumer - Trends and Marketing HCS/490 Russell Wettstein August 14, 2011 Demographic Paper The targeted population that will be explored in this paper is childhood obesity in the United States focusing on children aged between two through17. The surgeon general has labeled child obesity in America as an epidemic supported by statistics that in the last 30 years childhood obesity has tripled. The two primary factors identified by physicians and experts in creating childhood obesity, are first that children are not receiving enough exercise daily and not eating the right kinds of foods. The combination of sedentary lifestyle’s and fast-food diets have created a whole generation of children faced with serious adult health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, and high cholesterol. In this paper the subject to describe child obesity and its general impact that changing demographics may have on the health care market. Also the paper will tackle many questions involving this issue such as why and how will changes in the demographics of this population affect health care. Identify two key health care-related challenges to this population, such as increases in health care costs, increases in prescription drug costs, or the need for in-home medical care. Describe how a chronic disease wellness program may affect the costs for this demographic, what do the demographics tell about......

...Identify the targeted population. HIV/Aids • Gather data about the population demographics. More than 1.1 million people in the United States are living with HIV infection, and almost 1 in 5 (18.1%) are unaware of their infection Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM),1 particularly young black/African American MSM, are most seriously affected by HIV. By race, blacks/African Americans face the most severe burden of HIV CDC estimates that 1,148,200 persons aged 13 years and older are living with HIV infection, including 207,600 (18.1%) who are unaware of their infection.1 Over the past decade, the number of people living with HIV has increased, while the annual number of new HIV infections has remained relatively stable. Still, the pace of new infections continues at far too high a level— particularly among certain groups. HIV Incidence (new infections): The estimated incidence of HIV has remained stable overall in recent years, at about 50,000 new HIV infections per year.2Within the overall estimates, however, some groups are affected more than others. MSM continue to bear the greatest burden of HIV infection, and among races/ethnicities, African Americans continue to be disproportionately affected. HIV Diagnoses (new diagnoses, regardless of when infection occurred): In 2011, an estimated 49,273 people were diagnosed with HIV infection in the United States. In that same year, an estimated 32,052 people were diagnosed with......

...What is Demography? Demography is the scientific study of human population, including its size, distribution, composition, and the factors that determine changes in its size, distribution, and composition. Objects: Dynamic VS Static Demographic Focuses 1. Size: the number of population in a given areas at a given time. 2. Distribution: population dispersion in geographic space at a given time. 3. Composition: the number of person in sex, age, and other “demographic” categories. 4. Population dynamics: birth, death, and migration. 5. Socioeconomic determinants and consequences of population change --- Population Study. Population Characteristics  Population has three compositions (in terms of static):  natural composition: by age and sex  spatial composition: by province and by urban-rural areas  social composition: by marital status, educational status, nationalities, working status, etc.  Accordingly, population has three changes (in terms of dynamics):  natural change: birth and death  migration change: emigration and immigration  social change: marriage and divorce, enrollment and drop out  Population dynamics affects the population composition.  Population composition can be expressed at a point of time, which was called time-point index;  Population change can be expressed within duration of time, which was called period index. The Feature of Demography  Demography is rarely found as an independent academic...

...Demographic Transition The demographic transition theory focuses on changes over time in the causes of mortality affecting certain populations, such as health conditions and disease patterns. Through history a decline in death rates and an increase of life expectancy has been observed, implying that societies go through a transition from one equilibrium (high birth and death rates) to another (low birth and death rates). This transition is associated with a rapid surge of the population as well as urbanization and can be divided in four phases: •Phase I. This phase of the demographic transition (high stationary) is characterized by high birth and death rates, implying that the total population is stable or grows slowly. Mortality is high with the prevalence of communicative diseases that have not yet been mitigated by modern medicine. Famine is also common with uncertain food supplies and poor diet, making people more susceptible to diseases. Poor hygiene, no clean water or sewage disposal also contribute. Fertility is high since there is no or little family planning (contraception) as parents have as many children as possible because few survive to become adults. Fertility is also encouraged by the dominant socioeconomic structure in rural societies with many children needed to work the land with religious beliefs and cultural traditions also inciting large families. Birth and death rates fluctuate with the ebb and flows of events such as wars, epidemics or droughts.......

...return than the market rate of return. The CAPM model concentrates only on the pricing of systematic risk 1. CAMP assumptions * We have assumed that investors only care about means and variances. This rules out skewed distributions of asset returns (in fact it is more restrictive than this – it amounts to an assumption that asset returns are normally distributed) * We have assumed that there is a risk-free asset (this has been questioned during the recent financial crisis when even sovereign debt has been seen as risky) * We have assumed that shareholders just get a unified return on their shares and don’t care about how this return is broken down between dividends and capital gains. This is equivalent to assuming either that taxation is neutral between dividends and capital gains or that no dividends are paid. * We have worked within a single-period framework where investors simply receive a single return in the next period. That is not such a problem with regard to returns because that single return could be seen as encapsulating all future payments on that asset but it does rule out time-varying discount rates. * We have assumed that competition will force every asset return onto the capital market line. That requires a whole range of other assumptions – perfect capital markets and no restrictions on short-selling (so that investors are not held back from possible arbitrage transactions), no transactions costs, efficient markets which provide full......

Since Independence, we have been generally witnessing only a series of negative cynical comments in the media. As Indians we must be the most self-critical set of people in the world, but this mindset seems to be changing. Among the positive talk has been the reference to India's demographic advantage. We are a billion strong — in the same class as China — and we also have an edge over China. Thirty seven (37) per cent of our population is in the 15-35 years age group against 25 per cent in China.This at a time when developed countries are having a declining population, most of which is becoming increasingly grey.

Demographic Dividend of India

...Demographic Dividend Opportunity or Threat In 1798, in his An Essay on the Principle of Population, Reverend Thomas Malthus posited that the human population growing at an exponential rate shall someday surpass the level sustainable by the arithmetically growing rate of food production. This statement, which forms the crux of Malthusianism, argued for greater birth control measures to keep population in check. The 19th century, though not without its problems of population related urbanization, didn’t see Malthus’ premonition come to fruition and his argument seemed to have been laid to rest, albeit for half a century when in the wake of unshackling of slavery’s yoke by very many nations in the post war world, it was resurrected by the aptly named neo-Malthusians, including the likes of Paul Ehlrich (the Population Bomb) and the Paddock Brothers (Famine 1975! America's Decision: Who Will Survive?) Influenced by Soviet ideas, India was the first country to have an official population control policy in 1951. While the numbers would say that the policy hasn’t been successful, India has a population of 1.25 billion, the country has, by serendipity or by plan, reached a stage where the potential of its large population and the structure of it has become an important weapon in the country’s growing economic arsenal. The Demographic dividend, as this weapon is popularly called, depends on the make-up of the population, particularly on the dependency ratio, which is...

...practiced a social security policy corresponding to its planned economic system, providing social security services to its people as best it could. China has implemented lots of reforms since then but there is still a long way to go. The provision of social security has important implications for the China’s socioeconomic transition and long-term development. A well designed social security scheme can provide the necessary support for people facing uncertainty to mitigate shocks and steady their consumption. Social security can encourage households to spend more by making them feel more secure. Moreover, social security can improve income distribution through effective public transfer. Right now there is a lot going on in terms of demographics. China is reforming and doing changes slowly but with its rapid economic growth this is definitely a big challenge to face. -------------------------------------------- [ 1 ]. Dvorsky, George.

...Demographic Transition Theresa M. Valenzuela SCIE210-1201A-04 Environmental Science American InterContinental University Online Abstract This paper will include a definition of what demographic transition is. The four phases of demographic transition, including if the population is stable, growing, or declining in each phases will also be described. The factors that have lead to the declining of birth rates and death rates will be explained. Described will be three living condition or environmental impacts that have been reached in a developed country that is in phase four. Two programs will be suggested that would assist a developing country to reach phase four. Demographic Transition Demographic transition is when birth rates and death rates go down from being fairly high to fairly low levels (Glossary, EconGuru, 2012). This most likely happens due to women who would normally bear children step out into the working outside the home world. This then makes the population grow very slowly (Wright, pg 120 2008). The four phases of demographic transition are as follows: Phase 1: primitive stability, Phase 2: epidemiologic transition, Phase 3: fertility transition, and Phase 4: modern stability. The first phase which is primitive stability is defined by the high birth and the high death rates. During this phase the population does not grow very fast at all and it is fluctuating ("Barcelona field studies," 2011). Birth rates can be very high due to a number of......

...Demographics and the Aging Population Shirley Bradford HCS/490 January 9, 2012 Jacqueline Leff Demographics and the Aging Population INTRODUCTION “In January 2011, the first baby boomers turned age 65. Over the next twenty years, the numbers of adults who are 65 and older will double (Stone & Barbarotta, 2010).” Health care for the baby boomers will increase tremendously. The older age group of 85 and over will increase as well which will make demands on the care givers. This is because senior citizens are more prone to various physical and mental illness as well as have an increase rate of dementia. Because of this increase in illness and medical use, there is a demand for this group of people to have the proper care they need. This care may include skilled nursing facilities and assisted living facilities as well as care in the home. According to (Stone & Barbarotta, 2010), this will be the driving force that “recognizes the demographic reality” for the next twenty years. The purpose of this paper is to show the demographics of as the baby boomers turn 65 and older, how this will affect the health care market as well as the changes in demographics of this health care. These changes in demographics of the aging population can affect the health care market by increase in the gross domestic product. Currently that percentage is 14%. As the elderly continues to age, by 2030 this will increase to about 28% in health care. Compared to about 10 years ago, more...

Indias Demographic Dividend

...I always thought that competition is an excellent way to motivate kids. Many times, I made contests in the class, competitions, etc. I always found it that extra bit more fun when I was a student, if I had to compete against some other students.Recently, however, I find that competition is not for everyone. Most students really enjoy the sense of play, the sense of fun in beating or trying to beat their opponent in a silly competition, but for some kids competition evokes the exact opposite effect. Some students just shut down - they don't see the point of playing when they have no chance of winning. I decided to make a list of things I think are good and bad (my pros and cons) about competition in the class. And then accordingly, I would decide whether it's a good idea for a given situation or not such a great plan for the lesson. Pros: 1. Most kids really enjoy the "game" aspect of a competition. Fun = good for learning. 2. This is a great way to get the students to actively participate in the class. They get really involved, and just from the involvement they learn more than they would have by sitting and just passively listening. 3. Great for the bright and fast kids. If they're usually on the border of boredom, a game / competition will get them motivated to start thinking again. 4. Lets students have a sense of success. 5. If done in groups, can really develope comradeship with the other team members. 6. Some students work best under pressure. Competition is the...
