The United States is in the midst of a profound demographic transformation that will long outlast the current economic downturn. In 2011, the first of the baby boomersâ€”Americans born between 1946 and 1964â€”turned 65 years old. There are 77 million baby boomers, comprising nearly one quarter of the total population, and their eventual retirement will have an enormous impact on the U.S. economy. This daunting fact is central to the January 2012 employment and labor force projections from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). As the BLS projects, the retirement of the baby boomers will slow labor force growth significantly over the coming decade. Yet, at the same time, demand will grow for new workers to take the place of those who retire from the labor force, as well as for both highly skilled and less-skilled healthcare workers to look after the growing ranks of elderly Americans. In addition, the Social Security and Medicare programs will be called upon to serve a rapidly growing number of older Americans, which will leave American taxpayers hard pressed to fund those programs with their tax dollars.
In short, there will be growing demand within the U.S. economy for younger workers and taxpayers. For two demographic reasons, more and more of these workers and taxpayers will be immigrants and the children of immigrants. First, immigration fuels more than two-fifths of U.S. population growth, and immigrants tend to be younger than the native-born population. Second, immigrant communities tend to have higher birth rates, so they comprise a disproportionately large share of the next generation of workers. It is this combination of continued immigration and high fertility that explains the rapidly rising number of young Latinos in the U.S. population and labor force. Conversely, the non-Latino white population, which is fed by very little immigration and has low fertility, has seen its share of the population and labor force decline, while its average age rises. Given these trends, and given the size of the predominantly white, native-born baby boom generation that is now heading into retirement, the BLS projections point to an inescapable conclusion: immigrants and the children of immigrants will play increasingly important roles within the U.S. economy as workers and taxpayers for decades to come.

Data Entry Data entry jobs also tend to be popular overseas as the involved tasks normally don’t require the employee to have a solid grasp of English, as they must simply be able to recognize and correctly input strings of numbers and letters without a need for comprehension.
Technical Support Software companies such as Apple or Microsoft have such a larger customer base calling in or visiting online technical support that they must hire overseas phone and service centers to handle the amount of traffic. Technical support staffs are trained to analyze and fix a variety of common technical issues, often diagnosing the situation according to a pre-set list of questions that they run through with each customer.
Customer Service Similar to technical support positions, customer service jobs are outsourced because large staffing centers can be trained to handle incoming customer questions or complaints from numerous companies, increasing efficiency and, hopefully, customer satisfaction. Outsourced customer service jobs can include duties such as handling billing questions, product returns and registering customer feedback in a courteous and informative manner.
Accounting A company can outsource financial jobs to an individual or corporation specifically equipped to handle tasks such as payroll, benefits and bill processing. This saves the company the time it might once have used handling communication with insurance or medical bills, filling out accounting forms and monitoring budgets.
Writing Two aspects of writing that are often outsourced are copywriting and proofreading. While companies may not have the budget needed to hire a professional writer, they still want their advertising and marketing copy written in an attractive and compelling manner. Therefore they outsource the job to freelance writers, who come in on a contractual basis to complete individual projects on a need-to-write basis.

Population growth is the change in a population over time, and can be quantified as the change in the number of individuals of any species in a population using “per unit time” for measurement. In biology, the term population growth is likely to refer to any known orgasim. In demography, population growth is used informally for the more specific term population growth rate. Population growth is determined by four factors, births and deaths, immigrants emigrants.
