Demographic Indicators

About Demographic indicators

( Dynamics of the beneficiaries of health -- population count matters )

  Population, health, and economic development are determinants as well as consequences of each other. Improved health directly affects population size, age-sex structure, labour force participation, and productivity level, all of which may either inhibit or facilitate economic progress. Of course health is both a means and an end of development. (adapted from JSTOR Libraries and WHO 1972).
