"The relationship of population to economic growth is studied in cross-sections of LDC countries for 1960-1970, 1950-1960, and 1950-1970, in a multivariate fashion. The non-correlation of population growth with economic growth found by previous investigators in bivariate studies is confirmed here. And population size is found to have no effect. But population density is found to have an unequivocal and strong positive effect upon economic growth."
