Unformatted text preview: n in countries like England happened in 40 years in Brazil - Over the next 20 years, Brazil will still have more workers entering the job market than leaving it - The age structure of Brazil in 2030 will look much like the age structure of Japan in 2000 - a pillar rather than a pyramid - Used to be on 3rd phase of the demographic transition by 2000 but after huge drops in the fertility and death rates in the last years (lead by the factors shown in this presentation), it is considered to be already on the 4th phase by many. Conclusions Argentina - Argentina is between the 3rd and 4th phase of the demographic transition - According to the causes of death we can stress that Argentina is in the 3rd stage of the epidemiologic transition - Immigration, principally in the first half of the 20th century determined the unprecedented growth of the population and the main features of its culture. Conclusions for Spain - Spanish society has brutally changed over the last 50 years. In socioeconomic terms, Spain has gone from being a poor country to be among the most developed countries today. (Yes Carlo, admit it). - Spain will enter in the 5th stage of the demographic transition (declining population) as TFR stays low and migration is declining (will even be negative in 2012). - One of the major problems that Spain is facing in the future is the ageing population, which could create some problems in the pension/welfare state system.
