Using data from United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Population Division, the website Population Pyramid tracks changes in each country’s population from 1950 with projections through 2100 (see Link 1 below). From 2.51 billion in 1950, the world’s population will reach 11.21 billion at the end of this century with the population pyramid transforming into a cylinder as both the birth and date rates fall. The Population Reference Bureau website (Link 2 below) contrasts the demographic trends of more developed and less developed regions of the world. This site has information about a range of aging issues, as well as articles that will help you with #2 below.
For your case analysis:
First, select a country that you are especially interested in learning more about and, using Web-based sources (these don’t count towards the scholarly sources required for the assignment) and peer-reviewed articles, characterize projected demographic trends over the next several decades. The Population Reference Bureau website (Link 3 below) is the place to begin.
Second, outline any policies or programs that you could find that are in place for older people in that country. For example, the public pension system in China is funded in the same way as Social Security, but there is a mandatory retirement age for men of 60 and for women, 55. In the near future, because of the one-child policy that was in place until just recently, China will have too few workers to support retirees.
Third, identify the types of cultural influences that may affect how a country responds to an aging population.
In this literature review the importance of failed part identification was presented. The impact that quality and reliability had on this process was indicative of the value that proper measuring tools provide. Through the use of customer focused tools the identification and correction of failed parts was more easily accomplished and allowed a quicker resolution to customer problems. Benchmarking was discussed as a means of comparing outputs to those of competitors. Benchmarking was the first step in identifying areas requiring immediate attention. Haftl ( 2007) and Trebilcock (2004) devoted their articles to benchmarking and the impact it had on identifying areas demanding immediate improvement processes. Staff (2008), Cokins (2006), Tsarouhas (2009), and Savage & Son (2009) spent more time discussing the critical requirement of quality and the affects it had on competitive advantage. Lastly, authors Smith, Munro & Bowen (2004), Down (2005), Cvetkovski, Kerkstra & Benham (2005), Fair (2008), Tahera, Chan & Ibrahim (2007), and Roost (2007) discussed the different specifications and tools used in improving quality and identifying failures. The articles involving benchmarking were concise and easy to understand. A similarity among all of the articles is the census that quality was important in identifying and preventing failures and that competitive advantage cannot be obtained without it. Gaps identified through this literature review were the methods of making process improvements. Several of the authors had their own version of the best practice to use to improve performance. The articles on tools and specifications were very technical and discussed the different methods. In Fair’s article,the author had a different perspective than any of the other articles reviewed. He wrote from the view of a consumer. Methodology>GET ANSWER
