The relationship between population growth and growth of economic output has been studied extensively (Heady & Hodge, ).Many analysts believe that economic growth in high-income countries is likely to be relatively slow in coming years in part because population growth in these countries is predicted to slow considerably (Baker, Delong, & Krugman, ).

While the average population growth rate per year may fluctuate wildly we can also take the population data and by doing a linear fit of the data we can see that the population grew about % per year over the course of the Roman Republic (hmmm, so that is where all those historians came up with % per year for population growth before ).

The world population has grown tremendously over the past 2, years. Inthe world population passed the six-billion mark.

The conclusion that rapid population growth has slowed development is by no means straightfor-ward or clearcut (see Box ). Under certain condi-tions moderate population growth can be benefi-cial.

Although actual populations are unlikely to follow the theoretical logistic growth curve exactly, the curve can provide us with valuable guidance in. First published inMalthus's Essay argued that population growth, if unchecked, would always exceed capacities of food production.

However, it is clear that world-widepopulation. The formula for exponential population growth is N=N 0 e rt where N 0 is the starting population, e is a logarithmic constant (), r is the rate of growth (birth rate minus death rate), and t is time.

If you plot this equation, you see a curve arching upward over time as the population increases exponentially, assuming no change in the rate. The world's population has risen to more than 7 billion people, making issues such as food supply, energy resources, and water quality even more serious.

Population Growth examines this major issue in ways that emphasize the causes and effects of population growth. In addition, it examines why Pages: Kenya’s annual growth rate in real GDP from tofor example, was %.
