Global Social Change Research Project
The Global Social Change Research Project is a project devoted to bringing a clear understanding to the general public about social change. They have reports about social, political, economic, demographic and technological change throughout the world.
Reports from the project have been cited by a number of texts and studies, such as a course on sustainable development, a chapter in a book on transnational education, a chapter in a book on demographic changes and tourism, and a paper on political regimes and education.
Major Areas of Study
Some of the major reports from the study describe available indicators on the web to measure Quality of life or progress of the world. Recent reports show that, recently, World population growth is slowing, and that, recently, inequality in Infant mortality rates between developing and developed countries is declining, mainly because infant mortality rates among developed countries is now very low, and so has stopped declining.
One of the main conclusions from the population trend reports is that from 1950 to 2010, the distribution of world population changed significantly. The largest change was that Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean increased from 17.3% to 25% of the world population while Northern America and Europe declined from 22.7% to 12.4%. Asia changed little, only increasing from 60% of world population to 63%.
