It is a plus for the United States, a buffer against widespread recession in the housing market. The growing Hispanic population also contributes to programs like social security, says Samuel Preston, Professor of sociology at the University of Pennsylvania who has studied the impact of fertility on the social security system. The population can change in three ways: through births, deaths and migration, said. In United States the Hispanic population is growing as a result of three factors. Migration has been significantly reduced since the recession, but is still relevant in explaining the increase in the Hispanic population.
It is a little known fact, but Hispanics in the United States enjoy a life expectancy higher than the rest of the population (on average two years more).And in United States Hispanic fertility rate is high, with an average of 2.5 births per woman, a figure that non-Hispanic among was It is situated on 1.9 per woman. According to Preston, this has contributed to the increase in the figure of fertility for the whole of the country, which spent 1.8 children per woman in the 80 to 2.1 before the recession. Fertility in the United States is high in comparison with Europe, with average figures around 1.6 births per woman. Not the slightest doubt, that Hispanics in the United States, have become a great workforce, whose work provide a workforce that contributes with different companies that exist in that country, ensuring productivity, contribution to the American economy. Very interesting is the comment that also becomes about the fact, that we have a young population that is even more diverse that our working population of younger age says a lot about what we should do to prepare our workforce for the future, says Frey. It is clear that we need to take into account all these aspects of the life of the people. Need affordable housing, they need health services, they need various public services. These people will be the pillar of our work force. In short, no forget that average wages of Hispanic workers in the United States are lower than those of whites and blacks, but show less inequality between men and women, according to a study published by the Labour Department. -Bulletin of UK@W: 4 17 may, 2011.
