This is an engaging video that can be used to introduce demographics and their relevance, support economics, and address social issues. The statistics presented have been updated since the 1990 publishing of the text that the video was originally based on.

The webpage states learning objectives that are excellent, followed by thought-provoking discussion questions surely to move and provoke convicting conversation.
