Question and answer
Q: Is the number of gaining population expected to rise in numbers or decrease?
A: The world population has experienced continuous growth since the end of the Great Famine and the Black Death in 1350, [ when it stood at around 370 million.[5] The highest rates of growth ? global increases above 1.8% per year ? were seen briefly during the 1950s, and for a longer period during the 1960s and 1970s. The growth rate peaked at 2.2% in 1963, and had declined to 1.1% by 2011. Total
annual births were highest in the late 1980s at about 138 million,[6] and are now expected to remain essentially constant at their 2011 level of 134 million, while deaths number 56 million per year, and are expected to increase to 80 million per year by 2040.[7] Current projections show a continued increase in population (but a steady decline in the population growth rate), with the global population expected to reach between 7.5 and 10.5 billion by 2050 ]

User: How does poverty affect the ageing population?

Weegy: overty does not affect senior men and women equally. The rate of poverty in women over 65 is 21.1%, while 11.1% of senior men live in poverty. There are many reasons why older women are disproportionately affected by poverty. [ Women participate in the labour market differently than men, working fewer hours and at lower paying jobs. In addition, women have a primary responsibility for childbirth, child rearing and unpaid domestic work. Both of these factors place women at a disadvantage in a pension system that is tied to labour market earnings. Women also have longer life expectancies,often resulting in married women outliving their husbands, and losing the financially protective effect of being part of a couple. ]

User: How have people with disabilities been treated in the past?

Weegy: It truly depends on where the person lives: If you live in the Middle East and Southeast Asia the disabled is ostracized from society. In many African Cultures, [ the disabled is stoned to death as a sacrifice to please the gods. In Conservative States, like the Communist-Wealth of Virginia, the disabled is viewed as "Extremely simple people" or "Retarded" that lacks the intelligence to do anything but scrub toilets for a living. In Nazi Germany, the disabled was tortured and killed. In Japan, the disabled is not protected against any form of discrimination, including housing. Many countries, people with mental disabilities are not protected against discrimination. Insurance Companies don't pay for pre-existing conditions that might caused the person's disability. In fact, some insurance companies won't even insure PWD's. In New Zealand, society strives to treat the disabled as an equal. In Canada, the government strives to end discrimination against the disabled and has set up programs to not only educate PWD's but to educate society about PWD's. ]

User: How has the attitude toward people with disabilities changed over time?

Weegy: The disabled were placed in institutions (by the government) and were often forgotten about thus forcing them to live in unsafe/ unsanitary conditions. [ In conditions that would be construed as "animal cruelty" if an kettle owner made their animals live in those very same conditions the disabled were forced to live in. Many were abused, neglected, and murdered either by family members or at the hands of institution workers. The word "Retarded" was used to describe everyone with a disability, regardless of the type of disability or the severity. - - While discrimination toward the disability is still rampant and the government shows little interest in eliminating disability discrimination, I'm happy to say "Both forced lobotomies and sterilizations are a thing of the past." While mental health will remain a very low priority, I'm happy to say "The disabled is no longer placed in mental institutions and forgotten about but instead are given a chance to live on their own and become productive citizens." While neglect and abuse is still high, I'm happy to say "Neglect and abuse has been on the declined due to better educating society about people with disabilities." While the word "Retarded" is still being used, I'm happy to say "That irritating word is not being used as prevalent." ]

User: What are some unique circumstances or issues encountered by people with disabilities?

Weegy: Friends, neighbors, and people in the community may react negatively to the disability by avoidance, disparaging remarks or looks, or overt efforts to exclude people with disabilities and their families. [ Despite the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990, many communities still lack programs, facilities, and resources that allow for the full inclusion of persons with disabilities. Families often report that the person with the disability is not a major burden for them. The burden comes from dealing with people in the community whose attitudes and behaviors are judgmental, stigmatizing, and rejecting of the disabled individual and his or her family (Knoll 1992; Turnbull et al. 1993). Family members report that these negative attitudes and behaviors often are characteristic of their friends, relatives, and service providers as well as strangers Read more: Disabilities - Impact Of Disabilities On Families - Family, Development, Family, and Disability - JRank Articles ]

User: What is being done to address those issues?

User: What types of legislation have been introduced to address issues faced by people with disabilities?

Weegy: On January 23, 1990, the 101st Congress passed the "Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990" (ADA), which was then signed by President George Bush. [ It established comprehensive protection for people with a variety of disabilities in many aspects of public life. The impetus for the ADA grew out of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960's. Federal legislation to protect civil rights initially focused on the prevention of racial discrimination. Having seen the federal government involve itself in protecting racial minorities, advocates for the disabled began to agitate for protection for their constituency as well. Their first success came when, in 1988, the Fair Housing Act was amended to add people with disabilities and families with children for the classes of persons covered. Then in 1973, the Rehabilitation Act prohibited discrimination against someone with a disability by anyone receiving federal assistance, but it did not cover discrimination by employers, public accommodations in the private sector, publicly funded programs or those providing federal financial assistance. Coverage for all disabilities did not take place until the passage of the ADA. ]
