There is long-standing debate on how population growth affects national economies. A new report from Population Matters examines the history of this debate and synthesizes current research on the topic.

The report also examines specific regions of the world and how their differing policy environments have affected the relationship between population change and economic development.

Sections cover empirical work and analysis on general consequences of population; food and land; natural resources; other consequences of density; modern formal theory; and the determinants of population growth the density.
