Polish immigrants in the
We have a great number of polish immigrants in the U.K. Some pull factors
are, higher standard of living, so much so they
send some of their wages back home better jobs, better pay and a to their
family. Most people in the U.K think it is a bad thing to have immigrants in
our country, this is because they come into this country sometimes illegally
and take any job they can find which makes it harder for us to find jobs
when we need to. On the other hand there are some positives about them:
Very hardworking
Much cheaper labour
They get on with the job and give 100%…read more

The different ways Kerala has been successful in
bringing in that fertility down is through education.
They have schools in the villages. They have
essentially empowered women through higher
female literacy rate and that has helped to bring
the total fertility rate down. The other issue in
terms of Kerala is that it has also had a
communist government so, in some ways, that's
sort of deviating away from the normal trend that
you find in the country.
But education of women has been critical in Kerala. 80 to 90% of the
women have some level of education. And education is the best
contraceptive or main tool to control population growth. Other southern
states have also be successful using education to tackle overpopulation.
But not as successful as Kerala. Access to health care is also very
important. If you have hospitals in the villages, that essentially means that,
if the parents know that they can take these kids to the hospital, and as a
result of that, infant mortality rate goes down, then parents are less likely to
have the need to have more kids or children because they know that if they
have to that survive and are successful in life, then they'll be successful
too. Then that itself is going to bring the fertility rate down. So I would say
education, access to health other words, accessibility is they key
to stopping overpopulation.…read more
