In a paragraph or two think about:
- Was/is the population growing or shrinking, and is it an ageing community or one that is younger?
- Based on the considerations above what is potentially an issue with the current state of the population (i.e. a growing and ageing population)? These issues could be social, infrastructural, economic, environmental etc.
- If you were in a position of decision making, what information would you want to know to help you create policy to fix this issue?
- What kind of policy do you think might be of use in this situation?
