Mean Centers of Population by US State, 1910 Vs 2010
“In demographics, the centre of population (or population center) of a region is a geographical point that describes a centrepoint of the region's population. There are several different ways of defining such a "centre point", leading to different geographical locations; these are often confused.”
“Three commonly used (but different) center points are:
1. the mean centre, also known as the centroid or centre of gravity;
2. the median centre, which is the intersection of the median longitude and median latitude;
3. the geometric median, also known as Weber point, Fermat–Weber point, or point of minimum aggregate travel.”
The mean center, or centroid, is the point on which a rigid, weightless map would balance perfectly, if the population members are represented as points of equal mass.
Mathematically, the centroid is the point to which the population has the smallest possible sum of squared distances. It is easily found by taking the arithmetic mean of each coordinate. If defined in the three-dimensional space, the centroid of points on the Earth's surface is actually inside the Earth. This point could then be projected back to the surface. Alternatively, one could define the centroid directly on a flat map projection; this is, for example, the definition that the US Census Bureau uses”

Всеки пети българин днес е над 65-годишен. До 2050 г. този дял ще се увеличи до една трета при настоящите демографски тенденции и се очаква след това да остане непроменен с всеобщото намаляване на населението. Резкият скок в следващите десетилетия се обяснява с емиграция предимно на млади жители и увеличаваща се продължителност на живота. Към 2100 г. се очаква делът на хората над трудоспособна възраст да възлиза на около една трета в почти всички европейски държави.

Democrats dominate politics in California and Republicans are doomed for one simple, overriding reason: shifting demographics
In short, the GOP’s core constituency is white people and they’re a declining slice of the California population pie. Conversely, Democrat-backing Latinos and Asian Americans have been expanding their slices
This is not just in California, but nationally. It’s happening here first. But it’ll tend to happen around the country
Demographics are an eye-glazer, but California’s historic shift has been a political game-changer. The state has turned from battleground purple to one-sided deep blue in 25 years
Today, six of eight statewide elected officials are people of color three are Latino, two are Asian American and one is African American. All eight are Democrats. Republicans haven’t elected a statewide official since 2006. Democrats hold supermajorities in both legislative bodies and own California’s U.S. House delegation 46 to 7
In 1990, Republicans made up 39% of California’s registered voters. Today they’re down to 23.6%. That’s third place behind independents, who since 1990 have soared from 9% to 26.7% Democrats have dropped slightly, from nearly 50% to 44%. It’s all in the numbers
In 1990, 57% of California’s population was white. Latinos constituted about 26%, with Asians at 9% and African Americans at 7%. In 2020, the population is estimated to be 39.4% Latino, 38.2% white, 13% Asian and 5.7% black, according to the state Finance Department’s Demographic Research Unit. Projecting to 2040, the population pie is expected to be about 42% Latino, 35.6% white, 12.5% Asian and 5.9% black
The reason all this matters politically is that voters of color are snubbing the Republican Party and they’re increasing in numbers
Happy Monday! I want to share a little more on determining your target audience. “Target market” is likely a phrase you heard repeated in any sort of marketing class you ever took or article you’ve read. And, for good reason—it’s a key element for coming up with effective and successful marketing strategies!
In this portion of your marketing plan, you should list anything and everything you know about your ideal customer. This includes basic demographic information, such as gender and age!
Message or contact me to learn how more about this process!
As business owners, we’re taught to always be marketing to and searching for new clients.
And whilst the above is an essential aspect for any business wanting to scale, most forget their existing customers are just as valuable, and can still make a huge impact on their business's profitability.
And don’t just take our word for it,
Studies show increasing customer retention rate by 5% INCREASED overall profits by 25% - 95%! One way to understand if you’re retaining your customers or not, is via ‘Customer Churn Rate’. It’s utilised to measure the percentage of customers ending their relationship with a business at any particular time.
Don’t worry, the metric is simply and here’s how you calculate:
Set a timeframe, either monthly, quarterly or yearly, all depending on how you sell and price your products.
For example, gym and fitness owners often set it to a monthly basis because of the sessions and challenges they do each month, whilst a bigger company selling digital products might be viewed on a yearly or quarterly basis.
Set your audiences, it could be a general overlook or as specific as you want to.
Take the total number of customers who left during your pre calculated period of time and divide that by the total customers at the start of the period to get your result.
The results will begin to give you a deep insight into your audience over time, allowing you to hone in on your perfect demographic to market more effectively, target the right audience and skyrocket your customer retention rate!
