While the world population is expected to reach 8.5 billion in 2030 and 9.7 billion in 2050, especially in Western countries, families formed from marriages of people of different races and the immigrant population are increasing.
According to information collected by the AA reporter from data from the Organization for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD), the United Nations (UN), the European Commission and various European countries, the population describing itself as children of parents of different races or as immigrants is increasing.
According to United Nations data, while the world population is expected to reach 8.5 billion in 2030 and 9.7 billion in 2050, the 10 billion limit will be exceeded in 2100. On the other hand, OECD research provides With 38 members, information on demographic changes while addressing the future of families in a growing population.
According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development report titled “The Future of Families by 2030”, the number of childless families in OECD member countries corresponds to nearly half of all families. While 15 percent of all children of member states have only one parent, 10 percent live with their grandparents.
Among the 38 OECD member countries, including the USA, England, Canada, Germany and France, it is estimated that the number of immigrants, especially in Europe, will increase to 15 to 32 percent of the total population by 2050.
Minorities are expected to be a majority in the United States
According to the report, while in the United States, children from groups considered minorities are expected to become the majority among all children this year, while minorities will be the majority in the United States in 2042.
The same report also included a projection of future marriages between immigrants and people of different nationalities in the United Kingdom. Accordingly, it is expected that in 2031, 27 percent of the UK population will be from minorities and nearly a third of this population will be children under the age of 14.
While the rate of people who considered themselves the descendants of two people of different nationalities in 2001 constituted 1 percent of the total population, it is estimated that this number will increase to 8 percent in 2050.
It is also projected that by 2050, 26 percent of children across the country will come from such families.
