      Book Chapter Urban Violence, Quality of Life, and the Future of Latin American Cities The Dismal Record So Far and the Search for New Analytical Frameworks to Sustain the Bias towards Hope. The depressing fact of growing violence across major cities in Latin America is hardly news to scholars and practitioners in the region. In recent years. Latin American cities will have a population that does not grow or that simply declines. They will also have an aging society: today most Latin American cities have between 30 and 70 people over aged 60 for every under age In , that range will be between 80 and In many cases, the population over age 60 will have tripled.

        The purpose of this book is to add a new concern to the list of issues contending for position on the nation's urban policy agenda. By highlighting the relationship between disorder and neighborhood life, Disorder and Decline attempts to expand the scope of the traditionally popular "crime" agenda to encompass other pressing features of urban life. Key to the discussion of neighborhood change and sustainability is the number of families with children choosing to live in central cities. While table 3 does show a decline in the number of families with children in half the selected cities, the other half shows growth, including a remarkable percent increase in Austin and percent in Author: Eric Burnstein.

      Mapping America’s Futures also allows users to filter by age and race categories to see how specific subpopulations may change in the future. By , the population of the United States age 65 and over will increase dramatically, putting pressure on health and long-term care services and government programs funded by a smaller base of taxpayers. Similarly, the terms used to refer to this process differ from one country to another. In American urban history, it is analyzed in terms of “urban decline” (Beauregard ). American approaches often focus on the economic dimension of decline by studying the effects of deindustrialization on cities.

In American cities, decline reflected some of the same pressures facing labor—notably, deindustrialization and globalization. But, in most Rust Belt settings, urban decline began decades before any hint of trouble in the larger economy.

Among US urban scholars there is disagreement about whether the impoverishment of so many US suburbs and the return of urban downtowns is a blip or a long-term trend.

What Is the Future of the Black Urban Middle Neighborhood. The old, oft-repeated story of the decline of America’s older cities from the 60s and 70s goes something like this: the whites left, and the cities and their neighborhoods fell apart.

It may feature deindustrialization, depopulation or deurbanization, economic restructuring, abandoned buildings and infrastructure, high local unemployment, increased poverty, fragmented families, low overall living.
