"Six villages in upland West Bengal, India, were resurveyed in 1987 and the results compared with the data from a larger area studied in 1977-1978. There has been a 6.4% increase in the human population, but the number of households has decreased by 1.7%. The cattle population has increased 14.4% with male cattle accounting for the bulk of the increase. A crossbreeding program implemented 8 years ago has had virtually no beneficial effects. Other observations on the general welfare of humans and domestic animals are presented."

"The heart of the demographic problem in South Africa, from the economic point of view, is that quantities are not matched by appropriate qualities. There is, among the population, an inverse correlation between the rate of creating life and the ability to sustain life....First World medicine has controlled mortality without a concomitant effect on fertility, resulting in the customary vicious circle of proliferating numbers generating deficient human material, economic inertia, unemployment, poverty and hunger. These inhibit the progress of 'responsible parenthood' for the control of fertility and thus of population growth."

"The development of the African population between 1950 and 1985 has shown considerable acceleration since 1965. On the basis of United Nations sources published in 1986, the current demographic situation is examined in its various aspects: age structure, natality, nuptiality, mortality, migration and urbanization. The relationship between population and development, particularly as regards demographic transition, is established, leading to comparisons between Africa and the rest of the world."
