Sandra asks…

what effects will population aging have?

need answer for geography test

help would be much appreciated

best answer will be rewarded 10 points


vti answers:

The population aging means there will be less older people who will die and thus the need for social security funds will be not a great with the baby boomers of now.. After WW!!, the soldiers returning home, got married or joined their wives and alot of kids were born post WW11.. Aging will make room for new persons and jobs that were held by the older will then be available for younger people since the others will be retiring.. But, with new medicine, people are living longer. Therefore, it will be a burden on the children of these aged parents and what to do.. Take them in, or Nursing home when needed.. Nursing homes cost a fortune, so it’s a problem that must be addressed.. Healthcare is off the charts now and something will need to be done to make funds available to all who need them for healthcare..

College Economics Working Age Population/Unemployment/Labor force?

This is the data that was given.. and the calculations that are sought after..

Working Age Population _____________________ (calculate)

Employed 141, 578, 000 (given)

Unemployed ________________________ (calculate)

Unemployment rate 8.06% (given)

Labor force ___________________________ (calculate)

Labor force participation rate 65.55 % (given)

Help would be greatly appreciated. I feel a bit lost in this class.. and feel enough data isn’t given to determine these values.
Thanks again!

vti answers:

Keep in mind the definitions. Population = Labor Force + Not in labor Force.
Labor Force = Employed + Unemployed
UE rate = Unemployed/Labor Force = Unemployed/(Employed + Unemployed)
Labor Force Participation is Labor Force/Population

You do have the info you need, you just have to figure out the math. I think one problem is that you didn’t know where to start (if you tried to figure out population first, you’d be out of luck). You have to figure out Unemployment first, then labor force, then population.

If the UE rate is 8.06% and Employed = 141,578,000 then to figure out Unemployed, the equation is:
Unemployed/Labor Force which is Unemployed/(Employed + Unemployed) so we have X/(141,578,000+X) = .0806 Solve for X, that’s your unemployed.

Once you have Unemployed, add it to Employed, and you have your Labor Force. And since Labor Force/Population = .6555, then Population = Labor Force/0.6555

Note….you’ll have to do some rounding to the nearest integer when calculating both unemployment and the population.

Understand age structure.
