The purpose of this paper is to explore the main qualitative relationships between population growth, employment expansion and changes in income distribution. These relationships are extremely complex with an intricate pattern of links and feedbacks not only among these variables, but between them and a host of other economic, sociological, political and institutional variables. The first part of the paper reviews the findings of the quantitative economic-demographic models with respect to the impact of differential rates of population increase on the rate and structure of economic growth.
