This forecast is based on the worldwide decline in birthrates that has taken place in recent years. 1 that is the replacement rate of a stable population. 1 by 2050 if current trends continue (Ridley, 2010). 1 • World population growth, past 10,000 years.

There are also countries in which ethnic groups have a longstanding presence and may even have arrived before the majority culture. For example, Aboriginal peoples lived in Australia for many generations before the first European settlers arrived. Many African countries were constructed by European colonial powers in the 19th century and consist of people of a variety of ethnicities, each of whom has lived in their region for many generations. Often, ethnic minorities within countries have distinct cultural patterns that are different from those of the majority culture.

However, it should be noted that there is substantial variation within each of these categories. All developed countries are relatively wealthy, but human development in Japan is quite different from human development in France or Canada. All developing countries are less wealthy than developed countries, but human development in China is quite different than human development in Brazil or Nigeria. At various points we will explore variations in ­human development within the broad categories of developed countries and developing countries.
