The population is aging, households are becoming smaller, more people live alone, households without children are increasing, and single-parent families are increasing. Divorces are on the rise—which continues to broaden the types of family/household groupings that exist. And most people in each type of household group continue to live in moderate to severe isolation.
MCs will enable each family and individual to maintain the household size and type that they're comfortable with, but MCs will end the severe isolation people experience (no matter how desperately they use Facebook to cover up this fact) living both in family groups and alone. MCs will also increase resources for all concerned, both in terms of childcare, social possibilities, and connectedness to friends and community on a larger scale.
At the time of the 1990 census, the U.S. population exceeded 250,000,000, a 10 percent increase over 1980. In 2000, it was 281,421,906 and by 2010 it was 308,745,538. From 2000 to 2010 this is a 9.7% increase, although for people 65 and older, this change from 2000 to 2010 represented a 15.1% increase. In the middle of 2013, the population reached 316 million.
Cramming more people into the U.S. is dumb—it's too full, too polluted, and there are no good jobs for those already here much less immigrants
On the other hand, a full 25% of immigrants are professional or technical workers, compared to only 15% of the American population. We get many scientists, programmers and engineers from immigrant populations—if they didn’t come here we’d have serious, even critical, shortages. American science depends on immigrants: although the foreign born constitute only 6% of the US population, they constitute over half the graduates in computer science, engineering or math.
