As of July 2007, the _estimated_ population of the USA is 301,139,947. Using the statistics from the related link, we can derive that: . "In 1991, The National Center for Health Statistics reported that there were between 421,000 and 4.81 million deaf and hard-of-hearing people in the United State…s." - so between 0.13% and 2% of Americans are deaf. . "According the National Center for Health Statistics, the number of deaf people balloons to almost 20 million when referring to people who classify themselves as simply "hard of hearing."- so, taking into account the 4.81 million people, about 7% are hard of hearing. . These statistics should not be taken as representative of the total amount of deaf and hard of hearing people. The 2007 population was used instead of the 2008 population, and these are old statistics - almost two decades old!. Also, this is not a legitimate excuse to deny service to the deaf/hard of hearing population. Doing so is illegal and in contravention of the Americans for Disabilites Act in the USA. ( Full Answer )

Why the face of the American workforce changed dramatically after world war 2 what was the factor in this change?
The face of the American workforce changed in various ways. The type of people employed and the educational level of people employed changed too. Some nonwhites were able to keep some of their jobs in the manufacturing plants (well maybe not in the south) and more women joined the workforce (in new …jobs and types of jobs). The returning GIs were able to take advantage of the GI bill benefits offering college educations or completions of educations. They were able to become more professional and technical. Unfortunately, not many nonwhite took advantage of this bill because the largest majority of them lived in the south or in the Southwest (such as Native Americans and Mexican Americans) and did not have access to the universities or enough education to enter college. As the decades passed the southern blacks were able to get the Civil Rights Act passed and endorsed by Lyndon Baines Johnson. The women began to flood the workforce and experienced unequal pay. The Equal Rights Amendment was never ratified so they still don't have equal pay for equal jobs. The Handicapped Acts also helped the disabled people to get better jobs and more access.
