Updated on November 12, 2009


We are facing several social issues, and it would be interesting to list the six social issues that have hit humanity. In this way, we can examine where we are week. And how we have to tackle with all these issues. With this brief introduction we shall now proceed to look into the top six social issues that have made an impact on this entire world.

1.Poverty: This is one social issue that requires immediate attention since the lives of many poverty-struck villages are at bay. Midland has recorded the highest number of people who are subject to poverty. And the poverty is a bone of contention for all the major social issues

2. Smoking: Warning: Smoking is injurious to health.Smoking has become now the fashion in our society and as well the rate of diseases also increased due to smoking. People forgot that they are not enjoying the smoking but burning their lives in to Ash
The percentage of smokers has fallen from about 26.5% in the year 1998 to about 20.8% as observed in a survey that was conducted in the year 2006. As the laws get tougher on smokers, it seems people seem to be quitting this deadly habit

3. Youth drugs addiction: This is considered to be one of the big reasons why these youngsters have been pulled into alcohol and drugs because; most of the parents don’t seem to have clear and personal talks with their children. . The worst part of this is that the many parents are unaware of it. That’s why we are burning our youth. Among the twelfth graders in one survey, about 49% were found to have consumed alcohol

4. Teen Violence and Abuse:
This is definitely a heart-breaking issue prevalent almost all over the world. Based on a survey, out of the surveyed teenagers, about 30% seemed to have become victims of physical abuse and 29% were subject to violence.

5.Teen Depression and Suicide:
teen depression is eating out teenagers like a dragon. We have teen depression and suicide ruling the teen community. The reasons for depression are many, but the result has unanimously ended in depression and attempted suicides. According to rough statistics, it is said that about 28% of teenage kids have been driven into depression, of which 17% are found to be girls and 11% are boys.


No 5 is corruption. All over the world mostly countries are facing the hell of corruption. But all above said issues cause of corruptions.

If we have to save the world from these all-social issues every one have take the responsibility and feel his own liability.
