What are social problems?
Social problems are the general factors that affect and damage society. A social problem is normally a term used to describe problems with a particular area or group of people in the world. Social problems often involve problems that affect real life. It also affects how people react to certain situations. Examples can include:Marlow is officially the most deprived and worst place of living in the United Kingdom due to its social problems and factors of life. The town was given this particular position because of its frequent social problems, including: High levels of crime, high levels of unemployment, high levels of urban poverty, high levels of drug abuse and the lowest income on average in the country.
In 2009, Adair County had 137 DUI arrests, 160 liquor law violations, 131 drug arrests and 24 methamphetamine laboratory seizures in 2009 (Behavioral Health Profile for Adair County, 2011, p. 1). The manufacture of methamphetamine has been particularly problematic for rural Missouri. Missouri is the number one state in the country for methamphetamine trafficking. In 2002, one of every six methamphetamine labs confiscated in the United States was Missouri (Gundy, 2006, p. 7). According to the Kirksville Police Department, methamphetamine is their number one crime problem. This high prevalence of methamphetamine abuse leads to 40% of school dropouts in Adair County (Gundy, 2006, p. 7).
The main cause of social problems is because of unemployment, which is also a social problem itself. Many industrial towns in england were booming in the mid 20th century because of their shipbuilding and mining industries. When these places were shut down in the 1980's the unemployment rate reached its highest point in English history. The lack of money in these areas attracted other social problems and therefore social and economic development in these areas was stunted.

Threats to Societal Security Inflow of Small Arms and Drug: This is an external or trans-national source. Estimates differ and perhaps will be less than what is happening in the context of India or Pakistan. But it is causing security threats to the state and the society, for at least two reasons: first, the rate is increasing at an alarming pace; second, Bangladesh is a soft state and a soft society, the impact is easily felt.[i] Use of small arms, use of drugs are gaining autonomous proportion in the sense the administration and law enforcing agencies have practically little control over the trafficking and use. Law and Order and Social Violence: The south western districts are again becoming restless following increase in the number of incidences of killings and overrunning of police posts by the outlawed and extremists who seem to be reemerging from the banned parties like Purba Banglar Communist Party and Biplobi Communist Party in the southwestern districts.[ii] The northern districts in recent months have been subjected to terrorist attack.[iii] One of the horrendous crimes in recent times was the slaughtering of six persons in a......

...in Environmental Sciences (IE 5511) Research Proposal Research Title: Regional Poverty Disparity in Bangladesh for Climate Change Author: Muhammad Abu Noyeem Abstract Whilst Bangladesh is considered one of the most climates affected and vulnerable country in the world has made commendable progress in poverty reduction. But the proportion of poverty reduction is not equal everywhere in the country, particularly the coastal regions - having vicinity to the Bay of Bengal differs from the rest of the country in terms of highest vulnerability for climatic change impacts and highest poverty levels as well. It is predicted that frequent extreme events in coastal regions are the main impediment to attain national poverty levels. This research proposal aim is to establish a relationship between climate change impacts and change in poverty disparity by comparing coastal areas with other regions in Bangladesh over the last 20 years. The study will be based on year-wise comparative data analysis regarding affected areas, damages, development activities, socio-economic variables and poverty levels since 1991 to 2011. This research hypothetically foresees that higher extreme events affect and much damage will be created higher poverty gaps and disparity in coastal areas than the other parts of the country. Keywords: climate change, poverty disparity, coastal areas, Bangladesh. Proposed Supervisor: Dr. Ariana Zeka Lecturer in Epidemiology and Public Health Institute for the......

Unemployment Problem in Bangladesh
...Unemployment Problem in Bangladesh Unemployment means the state of being without any work both for the educated and uneducated for earning one's livelihood. Unemployment problem has become a great concern all over the world. But nowhere in the world is this problem as acute as in Bangladesh. Thousands of people in our country are without any job. In 2010, Bangladesh’s unemployment rate was 5.1% (Source: Bangladesh Burrow of Statistics). Source: UN data, Country Profile: Bangladesh Cause of unemployment: Bangladesh, suffers from large-scale underemployment; especially in agriculture, a large part of the population could be removed without reducing agricultural output. Beyond agriculture, disguised unemployment also exists in industries, offices and organizations, particularly in the public sector. Unemployment among the educated youths is rather high in Bangladesh. The unemployment rate for the population having secondary education and above is significantly higher than those with a lower level of education. The unemployment rate for educated women is higher compared to the male population. In Bangladesh salaried employment in the formal sectors is not big enough to take care of the huge number of unemployed. Employment promotion, especially, creation of self-employment opportunities, continues to be the most important function of the Bureau of Manpower Employment and Training. The Fifth Five-Year Plan (1997-2002) had set a target of creating additional employment of......

Main Social Problems in Bangladesh

Few major social problems are discussed in bellow oneafter another: Population increases at an unsustainable rate: It is entirely possible that the perilous situation that awaitsBangladesh with its population growth isn’t getting the kind of consideration that it so deserves. Or it may be that people are very indifferent about the whole matter. But ignoring or avoiding the problem itself wouldnot somehow make it go away, and would only make the situation worse for this poverty stricken country,and the world.Bangladesh is the 7th largest country in the world in population where 150 million people are virtuallyelbowing each other in a land that is 134,000 sq km in area with a population density of more than 1100 people per sq km. The population growth rate among the educated people in Bangladesh has come down bya considerable extent. But its growth rate among the underprivileged, who continue to constitute a bigmajority, is double the rate of the educated group. Since the poor people have no steady income (some practically live hand to mouth), they customarily want more children as security and support in oldage.During independence in 1971, the population of Bangladesh was about 75 million. After 37 years, its population is believed to have more than doubled.The current estimate of population......

Unemployment Problem in Bangladesh
...So, it is regarded as a problem. Unemployment is common every where in the world. No country in the world is completely is free form it. So, Bangladesh is not exception from it. Rather, this problem is very serious in our country. Many people are badly suffering from the curse of unemployment. There are many direct or indirect causes of unemployment. They are as follows: Our country is over populated. The rate of population growth is very high. So the present job facilities can not keep pace with the growing population. Besides, our country is not developed in industries. They can absorb only a limited number of people. Again, our education system is very defective. It is traditional and depends on memorization. It does not make them self-reliant. There is less opportunity for vocational training. So, only the memorized bookish knowledge does not help them in the work field. Moreover, our students have a false sense of prestige to become officers. They hanker after only for official jobs. So they remain unemployed. Then, there is serious lack of skilled manpower. This limits the scope of jobs. We have a lot of natural resources but we can not use these properly. This also causes the problem. Lastly, many illiterate people believe in a false notion such as “What is lotted can not be blotted”. This negative outlook creates unemployed people. Unemployed people fail to maintain themselves and their families. They lose their mental peace and social status. We know that......
