T.R. Malthus, 1.766-1.83.4 English clergyman, Thomas Robert Malthus, was the first person to draw widespread attention to the two components of natural increase, births and deaths .(fertility and mortality)

In his Essay on the Principle of Populatio n , initially published in 1.798, Malthus postulated that population tended to grow geometrically (exponentially) while the means of subsistence (food) .grew only arithmetically The Malthusian Trap

arithmetic growth (food): 1., 2., 3., 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 1.0 geometric growth (population): 1., 2., 4, 8, 1.6, 3.2., 64, 1.2.8, 2.56, 51.2. Malthus argued that the difference between geometric and arithmetic growth caused a tension between the growth of population and that of the means of subsistence. -- this gap could not persist . indefinitely

Owing to war, disease, hunger, and vice, mortality would serve as a positive check on .population growth Solution to the Malthusian Trap Preventive checks: birth control through (2.) (1.) later age at marriage. abstinence from sex . outside marriage

Malthus opposed artificial methods of) birth control on moral grounds. Viewed (contraception as a vice Population Explosion Contrary to Malthuss prediction, mortality has not yet risen to curb .world population growth billion people in 1.800 1 billion by the end of the 6 th 2.0 century

Population Reference Bureau 53(3); 1998: 38 The unprecedented population growth of modern times heightens interest in the notion of doubling time. Calculation of population doubling time is

.facilitated by the Law of 70 Law of 70 If a population is growing at a constant rate of 1.% per year, it can be expected to double approximately every 70 years if the rate of growth is 2.%,-then the expected doubling time .is 70/2. or 3.5 years
