Causes of Over Population

Pakistan is faced with problem of over population. Over population occurs when an area’s population is too large to be supported by the available resources. Although there has been a fall in the birth rate, it is still very high in relation to resources. The high population growth is damaging several development plans for the uplift of society. In Pakistan children form an important part of the agricultural and industrial labour and therefore large families are an advantage. Early marriage also increase the span for reproductively. In Pakistan majority of the people are illiterate so they are root aware of economic distress caused by high birth rate. Family planning programmes receive strong resistance on religious grounds. For example, Muslims have a firm belief that ALLAH gives Rizq to every one therefore why we have few children? However, the increase in population is due to economic, political and social factors just like.
1. Joint Family System
2. Illiteracy
3. Early Marriages
4. Religious Beliefs.
5. Customs and Traditions.
6. Strong Desires for Sons.
7. Need for More Earning Hands.
8. Lack of Recreational Facilities.
9. Avoiding of Family Planning Measures.

(3) Low Per Capita Income: As the population grows it reduces per capital income of the people because when decline in per capita income.
