Before you begin crafting your discussion response for this week, be sure to read Chapter 5 in Global Public Health. Focus on Case Study #2: Changing Ethnic Composition of the United States on p. 115.
Find data about the area where you live. How does this data compare to the case study? What trends do you see as far as population growth or decline, change in average age in your area, ethnic changes over time, etc.? Based on your own observations, how are demographics in your area currently changing? What are some of the implications of these changes? How does this information influence your thinking about your public health project for this class?
