Abstract : In an era of unprecedented population expansion, economically underdeveloped countries have the seemingly insuperable task of raising their standards of living while trying to stay abreast of astonishing increases in population. Simply stated, the problem of economic development in these countries is to increase production at a rate in excess of man's reproduction. This study was made to learn in what manner the demographic variables of total population size, rate of population growth, and composition of the population influence economic variables, particularly in Latin American areas, where population growth in certain countries is the highest of the major cultural regions of the world.
