Social concerns only has four syllables but is a big problem. Social concerns also referred to as social issues and social problems are the matters and problems that influences a considerable number of the individuals with in a society or it is a situation that at least some individuals in the community view as being undesirable. With the passage of time social concerns are increasing day by day and it is becoming difficult combating with them. Social concerns are distinguished from economic concerns but there are certain issues for example immigration that has both social and economic aspects. And then there are certain issues that devastates everything and fall under neither of the categories and that is war.

There are many reasons because of which social concerns are increasing at such a rapid rate and are affecting almost every individual in almost every community all around the globe whether it’s a developed country or an under developed one. In the following article we will discuss some of the major reasons behind this problem.


Following are the reasons why social concerns are increasing day by day.


Over population is one of the largest reasons of social issues. When a population exceeds the carrying capacity of its ecological niche social problems are generated. An overly populated area becomes difficult to manage and a little disturbance at one corner affects the whole area. In order, to maintain peace over population has to be controlled.


Unemployment or idleness is another big cause of social concerns. A rise in unemployment gives rise to crimes as the unemployed people will indulge themselves in stealing and robbery in order to provide basic amenities of life to their families. This leads to social illness.


Inequality is not treating everybody on the same grounds. Inequality among individuals creates a feeling of hatred among them leading to social restlessness which again is a big social concern and which should be eradicated from the roots.


Another factor that contributes the most in social concerns and which has its roots engraved into the whole system is corruption. There are many forms of corruption including usury, bribe, tax evasion etc. Corruption causes the right of many people inhibited. When the deserving people do not get what they deserve there is always generated a chaos and that leads to social issues.


Low literacy rate is not have access to good and quality education. People who have high quality of education excel in all fields while the ones who cannot afford high education are left behind this creates a feeling of deprivation among them leading to social illness.


Poverty is a very big factor that contributes to the generation of social concerns. Surveys show that countries have more poverty have more social concerns than those who have less rate of poverty. When poverty strikes a nation then that nation gets involved in crimes like murder for the sake of money, robbery, stealing etc to fulfill their desires and needs.

These were few of the social concerns that must be eradicated from the society. We have to find ways for combating with them either by voting for leaders in a democracy to advance their ideals or by donating or sharing our time, money and resources voluntarily.
