Research Paper: Topic, Questions, and Scoring This research paper provides the “real world” opportunity to analyze and evaluate population projections and the impact that fertility, mortality, and migration assumptions can have on the future size of a population and its demographic make-up. The topic of the paper is U.S. Demographics to the Year 2050 and the Outlook for Social Security . I hope this will be a challenging and rewarding exercise. Good luck. The paper should not be based only on data/information from a published source that has already analyzed. It must analyze and draw conclusions from original data , which are national population projections prepared by the U.S. Census Bureau. They are contained in an Excel spreadsheet (US_Pop2000-2050.xls) on the class Website. The Projections Tab contains population by selected age groups for the launch year 2000, four horizon years (2010-2050 in 10-year time increments), and four alternatives (low, middle, highest, and no immigration series) The Assumptions Tab shows the fertility, mortality and migration assumptions for each alternative. Articles on electronic reserve, the Internet, and the class website are available as resources.
