Abstract: Development policy, by and large, has emphasized econo~ transformation in the direction of sustained and rapid increases in the national product. In developing countries, however, the recent rapid economic gains have been unequally distributed among countries, regions within countries and socioeconomic groups.! As a result of such economic inequality, development planners have increasingly questioned the validity of aggregate growth as the main objective of development strategy, thus turning their attention to social transformation in the direction of a more widespread access of the population to provisions of government goods, such as education, health services and adequate housing [35]. Such a development policy involves an interdisciplinary and comprehensive approach in which population policy has a significant role to play.
