The basic components of population change

At its most basic level, the components of population change are few indeed. A Angara Round Citrine Cocktail Ring with Diamond Halo txH536LOC
(that is, one in which immigration and emigration do not occur) can change according to the following simple equation: the population (closed) at the end of an interval equals the population at the beginning of the interval, plus births during the interval, minus deaths during the interval. In other words, only addition by births and reduction by deaths can change a closed population.

Populations of nations, regions, continents, islands, or cities, however, are rarely closed in the same way. If the assumption of a closed population is relaxed, in- and out-migration can increase and decrease population size in the same way as do births and deaths; thus, the population (open) at the end of an interval equals the population at the beginning of the interval, plus births during the interval, minus deaths, plus in-migrants, minus out-migrants. Hence the study of demographic change requires knowledge of fertility (births), mortality (deaths), and Angara Cocktail Amethyst Screw Back Earrings in Platinum z4zysnKkv
. These, in turn, affect not only population size and growth rates but also the composition of the population in terms of such attributes as , age, ethnic or racial composition, and geographic distribution.

Demographers distinguish between fecundity, the underlying biological potential for reproduction, and fertility, the actual level of achieved reproduction. (Confusingly, these English terms have opposite meanings from their parallel terms in French, where fertilité is the potential and fécondité is the realized; similarly Angara BezelSet Natural Ruby Solitaire Ring in Platinum rXmrca
usages also prevail in the biological sciences, thereby increasing the chance of misunderstanding.) The difference between biological potential and realized fertility is determined by several intervening factors, including the following: (1) most women do not begin reproducing immediately upon the onset of puberty, which itself does not occur at a fixed age; (2) some women with the potential to reproduce never do so; (3) some women become widowed and do not remarry; (4) various elements of social behaviour restrain fertility; and (5) many human couples choose consciously to restrict their fertility by means of sexual abstinence , contraception, abortion, or sterilization.

The magnitude of the gap between potential and realized fertility can be illustrated by comparing the highest known fertilities with those of typical European and North American women in the late 20th century. A well-studied high-fertility group is the Angara Solitaire Round Peridot Pendant with Diamond Bale 7at0egu7V
of North America , a religious sect that views fertility regulation as sinful and high fertility as a blessing. Hutterite women who married between 1921 and 1930 are known to have averaged 10 children per woman. Meanwhile, women in much of Europe and North America averaged about two children per woman during the 1970s and 1980s—a number 80 percent less than that achieved by the Hutterites. Even the highly fertile populations of Angara Round Citrine and Diamond Halo Stud Earrings in Platinum C0CrsP
in Africa, Asia, and Latin America produce children at rates far below that of the Hutterites.

According to an estimate I read on Wiki, 90.5% of homicides are committed by men when men make up some 50% of the population. Men, then, are vastly more homicidal thantheeir numbers should justify. How many would argue that men are inherently, by nature, homicidal? Given the reasoning of some on this post, more than a few; crime is far complex than mere demographics can account for.

Thats because women, who are more likely than men to kill their own children, have seen their crimes rebranded as “infanticide” or can claim “battered wife syndrome” after killing their parnters. In reality women are just as violent as men.

This is, at the least, a poorly structured sentence. As it is, it suggests that young black men are 12-13 percent of the population.

You have to also realize the government considers Mexican mestizos to be white. That serves to increase the amount of white crime. Non-Hispanic whites comprise roughly 62% of the population of the US.

Interesting comments. I do have one request though that I think would add to the comments. if people would say if they are black or white. I think that would help as far as getting an idea as to what people are thinking based on their own experiences and backgrounds. I am wondering when I read a comment If the person is just wondering what it may be like or if they are prejudice etc. it would help to know.

Blacks embarrass themselves through bad behavior. Not all blacks, but a large enough group to be statistically significant. Facts are facts, blacks commit 3 times more violent crimes and up to 6 times more murders.

It’s not because they are poor, because I am white and I used to be so poor that we didn’t get to eat everyday. My dad was an alcoholic that drank away the majority of the money and my mom spent her time sleeping around. I was sexually abused and then told to “suck it up.” I was poor and had bad parents…and I haven’t murdered, stole, raped, or assaulted others.

Being poor is an excuse, but it is based on the acceptance of bad behavior. I’ve lived in South Carolina and Kansas in extremely depressed areas. In similar situations, with the only difference being the percentage of blacks, the crime rate and racism were drastically different. Crime was almost non-existent in the white community, which was slightly poorer.

And furthermore, why do blacks riot more often? Why do the riots always end up in looting? It is because crime is generally accepted as more palatable in black communities. My personal belief, based on my opinion so it is useless to argue with an opinion, is that crime is more acceptable because we have conditioned blacks to become wards of the state. When they become dependent on the government income, they slowly but surely become entitled. And entitlement makes people feel as though what they want should be theirs…and over time it becomes ok to act out on that feeling.
