In modern population theory there are three important aspects that should be distinguished, namely: the demographic phase, the bio-social phase and the socio-economic phase.

The demographic phase deals statistically with population composition and movement per se. The bio-social phase is concerned with differential rate of movement especially of human fertility as it is correlated with social end economic status and with reference to the bearing of the differtial rate of movement on the quality of the of the population. The social-economic phase deals with the interrelation of population and social and economic institution, with primary reference to the standard of living.1

This problem is a pioneer study on population dealing with one phrase of population theory, demography. The following data art fragmentary in nature and merely serve to stimulate further and more extensive investigation along these lines.
