    Human overpopulation (or population overshoot) is when there are too many people for the environment to sustain (with food, drinkable water, breathable air, etc.).In more scientific terms, there is overshoot when the ecological footprint of a human population in a geographical area exceeds that place's carrying capacity, damaging the environment faster than it can be repaired by nature.   The replacement rate—the reproduction rate that keeps a population stable—for developed countries is , yet nearly half the world’s population has birth rates lower than that.

ADVERTISEMENTS: Population Policy in different Countries. A policy is a formalized set of procedures designed to guide behaviour. Its purpose is to maintain consistency in behaviour in order to achieve a specific goal.

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, ).

Effects of population growth on educational enrollment and quality, on rates of exploitation of common property resources, on the development of social and economic infrastructure, on urbanization, and on research activities are all heavily dependent on existing government policies and their adaptiveness to changed conditions.

As a result of increasing populations, developed and developing nations face the economic challenges of changes in public policy and migration. One of the biggest trends in population is aging in the developed world. It is predicted that by twenty-five percent of developed countries will be sixty five and older (United Nations).

Or viewed the other way, population growth is a major drag on raising per capita income. Equally important, rapid population growth forces a hard choice in the allocation of resources.
