Abstract:

This documented briefing describes demographic trends in the United States, considers their social and economic implications, and reflects on the challenges they pose for public policy. It begins by placing these trends in global perspective, articulating how demographic trends are exerting common influences worldwide. An important consequence of demographic change, in concert with economic development, is the transformation of populations around the world into adult consumers, facilitated by smaller families and rising per capita incomes.
