Transcript of HSB4M - Fertility and Fecundity

Unit 2 Fertility and Fecundity The Switch Do you feel there is pressure or expectation on couples in Canada to have children? Why or why not? Have you heard of either of these terms? ttp://www.polleverywhere.com/free_text_polls/oYMteSNbzzpIZD5 Do you want children someday? Why or why not? How many children do you want? http://www.polleverywhere.com/free_text_polls/zxnZnBr1CccyI7a Fertility VERSUS Fecundity Fertility = actual reproduction. •A woman is fertile if she has born, or is bearing offspring.

Fertility rate = the actual number of children had by women; the average number of children had per woman Can we predict what the global trend is? What is the developed world? The Back Up Plan http://www.polleverywhere.com/free_text_polls/byGhCBvcn05jT7G Fecundity = the ability to reproduce•Comes from the Latin word fecundus meaning fruitful•A woman is fecund when she gets her first menstrual period. Why do you think this is the new trend? What are the impacts of this? Can we do anything about this trend? Fertility in the Developed World Developed World: Countries that are industrialized, modern, and wealthy – often countries in North America, Europe, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand We have already briefly discussed the trend. What is it? Trend- falling fertility rate because women in the developed world are having fewer children. Why is that problematic? Fewer people to pay for services for the older unhealthy generation.
Population Decline. What is the developing world? Developing World = countries that are generally non industrialized and less wealthy. 95% of world population growth today is happening in the developing world50% of population under the age 15 What are some of the problems that people in the developing world face? Poor living conditions;
Lack of access to health care and education;
Political and civil unrest;
The Global Trend (for BOTH the Developed and Developing World) Fertility rates GLOBALLY on decline.
Developed world population is shrinking
Nations are relying on immigration to replace population. Why Should We Be Concerned?? Replacement Level = the required number of births to maintain a population In Canada the fertility rate is expected to fall from 1.54 to 1.48 births per woman in the next five years
Only NWT and Nunavut show birthrates above the replacement level. What can we do? Read the case study on pg. 177 and 178 of your textbook.
Is immigration the solution? http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/
