    There aren't really any studies for demography, it's just more reasons for the decline in the birth rate, death rate and the affects of the decline of each.

    Yeah I gues but then you would have to include terminology, and what terminology would you include... isnt that how you get marks by including terminology and/or studies?

    A question of demography, I'm guessing you'd get the marks for giving the correct reasons and explaining terminology; such as explaining what 'birth rate' actually means and what 'the dependency ratio' actually is? Things like that.

    I've sat it twice already. I've sitting it again as an independent candidate on the Tuesday after this exam? My AS Levels are shockingly bad. My A2 Levels not so bad. I didn't give a flying monkey about year 12. Big mistake

    Pretty much. You can say the 'burden of dependency' has been reduced because of the fall in the fertility rate/birth rate - You can pretty much use it for either. If the question is about death rates, you could say the dependency ratio has increased because pensioners are part of the dependent population and as a percentage of the population, pensioners as a group are increasing - In 2014, the number of people aged over 65+ is due to overtake the number of under 16's.

    Yh social policy and childhood are my weakest. Family diversity came up twice as 24 marker, theories of family maybe not caused they asked marxism in jan 2013, if it does come up then it would be functionalists.

    Isn't that segregated division of labour, women take responsibility for housework and mothering and men take responsibility for being the breadwinner and head of the household

    I would love a demography question

    (Original post by cj_)

    Gershuny - shift towards equality, Silver and Schor - Commercialisation of housework, Dual Burden with Ferri and Smith's study, Lesbian couples and gender scripts, Pahl and Vogler - Allowance system and pooling, Edgell's study of what decisions are made by which gender.

    ^ I think that's all you'd need to know for a question on the sexual division of labour.

    EDIT: I might actually be wrong though :lol:

    We have been advised that 24 markers on:
    changes in death rate
    Changes in the family
    Child influence on society/family

    This doesn't mean they are going to come up but our teacher thought that these could be possible questions to the may 13th paper.

    if changes in the family came up, would you talk about:
    parsons vs laslett, the family and modernity, the family and postmodernity, willmott and young vs mc glone et al?
    or would it be about family diversity??
