Over population is one of the most dominant cotemporary social problems. World population is increasing at a rate of 1.9% per annum. While in Pakistan, population is growing at a rate of 3.0% per annum. Ideally speaking population growth is problem only if the rate of increase in population surpasses the parallel growth in resources required to sustain that population. In reality, it is absorbed that with the increase in population, rate of progress decreases and national resources go to waste.
Pakistan is facing this problem on a very serious level because the resources (mainly land) are decreasing due to water logging and salinity. Yield per acre, from the land that is cultivated, is also tremendously low. This is depicted by the fact that our 28% population is engaged in our crop supply.
Population expansion is a boom for a nation because no country destroys its men, women, and their children. Sociologists feel this expansion is a great menace to human life. They say that most of the resources are consumed by exceeding number of family-members, which brings down standard of living every one.
