pay someone do my online discusion 2.1 on In what ways can the aging population be differentiated in terms of needs, attitudes, social problems, health, and so on?

2-1 Discussion: What Do the Numbers Tell Us?

The demographic data presented in the Module Resources paint a very detailed, but often confusing, picture of aging in the United States and the broader global population. The Baby Boomers are a large and aging segment of the U.S. population. Their size, needs, attitudes, and so on are different from their parents’ generation (often referred to as the Greatest Generation) as are they different from their children’s generation (the echo boomers, GenX, or one of several other labels applied to them.)

Review the demographic data presented in the Module Resources. Pay particular attention to Demography Is Not Destiny, Revisited and the Living Old video and then discuss the following topic/question:

TOPIC: We often talk of the elderly as if they were one homogeneous group, and consequently, society often treats them that way. From the demographic data in this module, you can see that this is far from accurate.

After watching the video, what struck you the most?

In what ways can the aging population be differentiated in terms of needs, attitudes, social problems, health, and so on? Think back to Master Status and the major social categories from Introduction to Sociology. Think of the broader society.

Some questions to frame your thoughts:
What groups/cultures are present? How is aging different for them? Do we treat all aging individuals as if they were the same, or do we need to take into account differentiating factors?

Give this some serious thought.
