I'm at a bit of a loss as to what the 20 marker could possibly be for this topic ...

The Westergaard book has a sample Q on the ageing population, but this is given very little space in the textbook (perhaps it's given more attention in Browne?) so seems unlikely to be posed as a full essay question. On the previous spec, the essay questions that relate to this topic were all 'examine' rather than 'assess' questions and they were addressed to changes in the birth / death rate - I'm clear on how students would examine these issues, but less clear on how they would 'evaluate' (which is the stem for the new spec) such questions. There are no speciman questions / sample responses / mark schemes about this topic on the AQA website either.

I'd be massively grateful if you wouldn't mind sharing any thoughts about how potential demography questions might look or any additional AQA resources / examples of student work you may have on this as I'm seriously stumped!


Cheers!

The 2014 paper had a 24 mark question " assess the view that an ageing population creates problems for society" so it's certainly possible for them to write a 20 mark essay on the new specification. I think the easiest way for them to ask a question on demography is to link to other areas of the course - e.g. evaluate the view that demographic changes have undermined the role of the nuclear family in society,

While vagrancy itself is not a brand first name that is straightforwardly gather in the opinion poll of populace and Housing, evaluation of the penniless populace might be gotten from the Help with Essay Census utilizing methodical strategies in view of both the qualities seen in the Census and presumption about the way individuals may react to Census.

My thoughts exactly! But as it is in the textbook as a 20 marker then I assumed they could ask the q.  It does seem very limited though and I much prefer Tom's q!

Households are gatherings of people that co-live and share a few resources. Families are families of the related person. Family and family demography is the investigation of these essential social gatherings or social units, buy assignment uk and specifically of gathering enrollment and the connections between individuals from the gathering. The ideas of family and family rely on upon social, social and monetary variables that shift after some time and between countries.

I think the Browne book does have a bit more on this section
