Due to heavy pressure of population in underdeveloped and developing countries and its rapid increase, the demand for food is increasing at a fast rate. 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, ).

Because most developed countries have undergone a complete demographic transition, and have low population growth rate, their numbers increase little over the present. In contrast, developing countries with their high population growth rate will comprise a larger and larger fraction of the world populations.

But it is possible that the effect of population growth on economic development has been exaggerated, or that no single generalization is justified for countries differing as widely in growth rates, densities, and income levels as do today's less developed by: continued population growth that does not slow in response to growth reduction measures.
