In contrast, unemployment was low in Germany, starting at 4% but climbing gradually to 9% in 1997, dipping to 6% in 2001 and increasing to a high of 11% in 2005. Italy’s unemployment rate fluctuated less than the others, starting and finishing at 8% over this period and reaching a maximum of 12% from 1997 to 1999.

In 1991, just over half the female population in Germany (54.4%) was working compared with more than three-quarters of the men. However, in Spain, about a third of the women were working, and a third of the men were not. Italy’s employment rate among men in that year was similar to Germany’s, but not as many female workers were employed (37.8%).

Overall, in Germany, the rate of unemployment rose while there was a downward trend in the other two countries.

Task 2 Model Answer

Due to the increasing demand for houses and accommodation worldwide, many cosmopolitan cities cannot meet the housing needs of their citizens.

One of the main reasons for the housing shortage in urban areas is an increase in population. Many individuals have migrated from rural areas to cities, searching for a better life for themselves and their families. Similarly, foreign immigration rates to large cities continue to rise. Another cause behind the shortage in housing supply is the government’s initiative to protect ‘green spaces’ and environmental areas. As admirable as this goal may be, it takes up valuable land which could be used for housing. Besides, the economic recession has caused a dip in the investment of construction projects, which has slowed development. A final contributing factor in some cities is a lack of coordinated planning and vision for the future, which fails to consider population growth and the needs of future residents.

Solutions to this housing crisis need to be found. One suggestion is to implement town planning systems that encourage the concept of satellite cities to give residents the best of both worlds. These satellite cities have all the benefits of living in the countryside regarding the environment and community. Still, they are situated only at a short distance from the nearest city for employment purposes. Thus, they take the pressure off city infrastructure and, in particular, the housing stock. Pockets of high-density inner-city housing could also assist in alleviating the housing shortage.

All in all, the answers to the urban housing crisis lie in effective planning for the future while addressing current needs.
