Population Studies: Population and Development

Development means an improvement in one’s quality of life. Four factors comprise quality of life: physical, social, economic, and psychological.
This concept remains broad. In developing countries, they define development when there is a presence high local food supply, electricity in remote areas, and high literacy rates.
