Political demographics

  2. 2. What Does Political Demographics Mean?<br />Study of a population based on factors such as age, race, sex, economic status, level of education, income level and employment, among others. <br />
  3. 3. Why is POPULATION an important topic?<br />
  4. 4. This is the fundamental question of our time, and the challenge is becoming more problematic as we add more people. <br />It's important to know how fast population is growing, so that we can build sufficient sewers, roads, power plants, and schools.<br />
  5. 5. The Problem is...<br />OVERPOPULATION!<br />
  6. 6. OVERPOPULATION<br />A term that refers to a condition by which the population density enlarges to a limit that provokes the environmental deterioration, a remarkable decline in the quality of life, or a population collapse.<br />
  7. 7. Past Human Population Growth<br />“J-SHAPED” Growth<br />
  8. 8. The human population growth of the last century has been truly phenomenal. It required only 40 years after 1960 for the population to doublefrom 2.5 billion to 5 billion. <br />
  9. 9. Of the 5 billion people, about half live in poverty and at least one-fifth are severely undernourished. The rest live out their lives in comparative comfort and health.<br />
  10. 10. The Question is:<br />WHY DOES THE WORLD POPULATION INCREASE?<br />
  11. 11. One must consider that it is quite natural for the population to increase in such places where good climatic conditions, medical facilities, food and precautions are available to produce and to protect living things.<br />These are factors that contributes to population increase.<br />Population can further increase unless sensible people takes measures to control it.<br />
  12. 12. “THE LOWER PART OF US IS STILL ANIMAL” -Gandhi<br />SEX is the most dynamic force in human nature.<br />Remember: <br />Whoever wants to bring his mind under complete control, a still great measure of self-discipline is necessary!<br /> <br />
  13. 13. Man’s sexual urge must be controlled properly otherwise man will behave worse than an animal when he is intoxicated with lust.<br />
  14. 14. Population situation vary. Different population situation require diferent policy actions.<br />Say for instance, Canada needs to increase its population<br />
  15. 15. The Philippines<br />needs to limit it.<br />
  16. 16. The current Philippine population according to World Factbook of CIA.gov is 101,833,936 as of January 1, 2011.<br /> <br />WHICH MEANS...<br />
  17. 17. We ranked number 12thas the most populated country<br /> in the entire world! <br />
  18. 18. According to Wallace Report 2004:<br />The population growth rate in the Philippines per year is 2.4%. It is almost growing twice the average in Asia and three timesthe World Average.<br />
  19. 19. More than 55% of the Philippine population is living on the Northern island Luzon.<br />
  20. 20. The NCR which is a little part of Luzon is the most densely populated area in the country. More than 9.9 M or 13% of the total population are living here. Thus, the total area of th NCR is 636 sq. Km.<br />The density? On one sq. Km. are living 12.617 persons! <br />
  21. 21. Merton Lambert once said that, “The world has a cancer, and that cancer is<br />MAN.”<br />Now, with OVERPOPULATION as an epidemic phenomena.<br />How then, does OVERPOPULATIONaffectPOLITICS, NATURAL RESOURCES & ECONOMY?<br />
  22. 22. POLITICS<br />Governing an overpopulated country presents problems.<br />Politics concerns with how decisions on allocation of scarce resources are made & implemented for the people’s welfare.<br /><ul><li> Scarce Resources in a finite world .
  23. 23. People with infinite reproductive capacity. </li></li></ul><li>NATURAL RESOURCES<br />Overpopulation does not just affect the standard of living, but also the environment. Every person on the planet takes up space.<br />People excrete wastes and pollution that flow into water systems, and animal habitats, polluting water, and killing wildlife. <br />
  24. 24. Forests are being torn downas more wood and land is needed to support our ever-growing population. The loss of these forests leads to extinction of plants and animals. <br />
  25. 25. Urban areas are expanding, polluting the air and water systems. These areas deplete the Earth’s resources, and over 2 billion hectares of arable land have already been lost, with 16 million more hectares being removed each year. <br />
  26. 26. Effects of vis-a-vis Nature:<br />1) More garbage (especially solid waste). <br />2) More air pollution from factories as they increase produc- <br /> tion to meet demand. <br />3) Depletion of energy resources as the demand for energy <br /> increases. <br />4) More pesticide use as agriculture increases to provide <br /> necessary food. <br />5) Accelerated loss of nutrients in the soil due to poor farm- <br /> ing practices and overuse of land. <br />6) Habitat destruction for wildlife through encroachment on <br /> wilderness areas or pollution of these areas.<br />“NATURE IS A BALANCE OF EXISTENCE”<br />
  27. 27. ECONOMY<br />Overpopulation has a definite effect on a country’s economy. When countries are overpopulated, the hardly have enough food to support themselves.<br />This can contribute to a low GDP per Capita which is effect overpopulation has on the economy. In an attempt to save the people from the starvation, the government will most likely have to rely on foreign debt.<br />
  28. 28. This puts the country in debt at stretches the government’s already meager resources. <br />Furthermore, when a country is overpopulated, there is a high rate of unemployment because there just aren’t enough jobs to support the population. <br />This results in a high level of crime because the people will need to steal things in order to survive.<br />
  30. 30. BIRTH RATE SOLUTION<br />Finding ways to lower birth rate.<br />
  31. 31. Lowering BIRTH RATE through...<br />Population Education<br />Family Planning<br />Sex-Ed<br />
  32. 32. Even the Bible speaks in Genesis 1:28<br />God blessed them and said to them, “Go forth and multiply...<br />fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”<br />
