The increasing pressure of population on natural resources will retard the economic progress and minimize the scope for social services in the form of education, wealth, and housing. Therefore, a planned growth of our economy needs some effective check on population. With increased industrialization and urbanization results in air pollution, noise pollution, and water pollution which is all detrimental to our environment. The population growth is determined mainly by birth rate, death rate, and migration patterns like immigration and emigration. Efforts are being made for improving the population and economic condition of people but it can bear no fruitful result if population is allowed to growl unchecked.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
