Factors influencing population growth
Disadvantages of population growth
The indigenous group is composed of two cultures, the Cunas and the Chocoes; the Cunas of the Darien number less than 1,000 individuals. About 25,000 Cunas live in the Comarca de San Blas, in the Atlantic islands. The Chocoes are divided into two groups with different dialects, which are the "Emberé" who form 90% of the Chocoes of Panama, and the "Nonamá" or "Waunana" (DGPA, 1972, page 4).
The colonos or interioranos are also newcomers to the Darien; the term refers to the Indo-mestizo and Euro-mestizo peasants who come from the provinces of Chiriqui, Los Santos, Veraguas and Herrera.H.1.1 Spatial Distribution
The black group tends to live in the towns of Yaviza, La Palma, Pinogana, El Real, Yape, Boca de Cupe, Chepigana, Garachiné, Boca de Sábalo and Jaqué, or in isolated dwellings in the lower courses of rivers and estuaries.
The most populated places in 1970 were La Palma (1,742) and Yaviza (1,651). Since the route of the Pan-American Highway passes through Yaviza and not La Palma, it can be assumed that this town will be subject to greater population growth due to its geographic position.H.1.2 Structure by sex and age
What are demographic factors?
Demographic factors or demographic data are the set of characteristics that statistically define a population, or a group within it, and are used to study its population patterns and its collective makeup.
How do demographic factors play a role?
Demographic data provides a much deeper insight into user behavior. Information about user groups can be used to improve the effectiveness of advertising campaigns, optimize the website offering and, last but not least, drive sales.
The growth of the world's population has positive aspects for the development of society, but it also has negative effects on the planet. In the following lines, we list the most important of these:
Climate change refers to the alteration of the climate attributable, directly or indirectly, to human activity. Therefore, the more human beings, the greater the impact. This is where greenhouse gases come into play, which accumulate in the atmosphere and retain heat, increasing the greenhouse effect and contributing to an increase in the average temperature of the planet.
Having established both the causes and consequences of world population growth, the question arises: how will it evolve? The following is a comparison of the estimates already mentioned by the prestigious medical journal The Lancet and the UN:
Beyond these predictions, humanity has a challenge ahead: to minimize the impact of population growth and, therefore, of climate change. To avoid pushing the planet to the limit, it is necessary to work together to reduce the carbon footprint, build infrastructures and buildings in line with sustainable urban development, promote intelligent and sustainable mobility, support a circular economy and responsible consumption, promote renewable energies, etc.
Disadvantages of demographics
Although low-skilled migration has been the largest (and has remained more or less constant as a percentage of the adult population over time), skilled labor is increasingly migrating. Anglo-Saxon countries tend to have a higher proportion of skilled migrants than continental European and Nordic countries.
Since on average immigrants tend to be younger than the local population, they contribute to swelling the working-age population, the best-known channel through which they improve per capita income. But as this new study shows, it is by far not the most important.
Immigration can bring substantial benefits to advanced economies, in terms of higher GDP per capita and improved living standards. These benefits are more or less distributed across the entire population. But the key to reaping them lies in addressing the challenges posed by migration in the short term and, in particular, in ensuring that immigrants are integrated into the labor market.
Demographic vulnerability examples
Health is defined as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity (WHO, 2006)1. This definition applies to both migrants and non-migrants. Health is also a fundamental human right and an essential component of sustainable development. Being and remaining healthy is a basic precondition for migrants to be able to work, be productive and contribute to the social and economic development of their communities of origin and destination.
The concept of migration and health includes the idea that there are certain factors and conditions that influence the health of migrants. These factors and conditions are called social determinants of health. Migration, among other factors, is considered a social determinant of health because it can have an impact on health. There are different levels of social determinants of health ranging from general socioeconomic, legal, cultural, environmental and physical settings to individual factors such as lifestyle, age, hereditary factors and behavior, which can influence the health of migrants (see infographic below). There may be differences in terms of disease profiles and health risk factors between migrant and host populations, or inequalities in terms of access or response to health measures.
