The problem of population is not new. Like all general questions capable of being treated more or less abstractly, it has now and then interested a thinker ever since there has been some modicum of civilization. Though considerable literature exists on problems of population, great difficulties face the investigator who sets out to examine the population situation in any specified area. These difficulties are not only from inadequate factual knowledge and quantitative data, but also from shortcomings of the theories of population which have so far been constructed. These shortcomings, however, do not render these theories useless; rather, they have been modified, and, in a number of cases, extended. The present study is an attempt to carry out some of the modifications and to extend the study of population.
