India Approaches Replacement Fertility
By Carl Haub and O.P. Sharma

This Population Bulletin updates a previous Bulletin from 2006, India's Population Reality: Reconciling Change and Tradition. Indias's population (currently at 1.3 billion) will exceed China's before 2025 to make India the world's most populous country. India's annual increase of about 19 million people contributes more to the annual world population growth of about 89 million than any other country.

However, the most recent population data shows a country headed for replacement level fertility-albeit, with notable regional differences in fertility trends.

India is a country of diverse ethnic, linguistic, geographic, religious, and demographic features. And, despite its emerging economic power and multiple megacities, Indian life remains largely rooted in its villages. Indeed, we argue in this Bulletin that deep-rooted cultural traditions will have a bearing on the ability of different regions of the country to reach replacement level fertility.

Aging in the United States
By Mark Mather, linda A. Jacobsen, and Kelvin M. Pollard

The current growth of the population ages 65 and older is one of the most significant demographic trends in the history of the United States. Baby boomers-those born between 1946 and 1964-have brought both challenges and opportunities to the economy, infrastructure, and institutions as they have passed through each major stage of life. Although U.S. policymakers and others have had many decades to plan for the inevitable aging of the baby boom cohort, it is not clear that sufficient preparations have been made to meet baby boomers' anticipated needs in old age.

The aging of the baby boom generation could fuel a 75 percent increase in the number of Americans ages 65 and older requiring nursing home care, to about 2.3 million in 2030 from 1.3 million in 2010, the Population Reference Bureau (PRB) projects in a new report.

The report, "Aging in the United States," examines recent trends and disparities among adults ages 65 and older, and how baby boomers will reshape America's older population. In 2016, baby boomers will be between ages 52 and 70.

Understanding the dynamics of family change in the United States
By Alicia G. Vanorman and Paola Scommegna

Beginning in the 1960s - and accelerating over the last two decades - changes in marriage, divorce, cohabitation, and nonmarital childbearing have transformed family life in the United States. The family continues to serve a primary role in raising children and caring for elderly relatives.

But new family patterns and increased instability are creating complex family and economic ties that often span multiple households. These unstable living arrangements and complex family relationships also affect the health and well-being of children and adults, creating challenges for families and policymakers alike.
