Pakistan is known as one of the fastest growing countries in the world. Today the population of Pakistan is one of the highest in the world. It is officially estimated at 3.1 percent per year increase now the percentage has increased to 3.3. There are many causes of over population. There are many negative effects of overpopulation, like low per capital income, unemployment, low growth of agriculture sector, low saving and low investment, high rate of inflation, pollution, vicious circle of poverty, low living standard, adverse balance of payment, reduction in wage rate, increase in dependence ratio. Pakistan needs to actively try to reduce its population.
