    Effects oPopulation growth, even rapid population growth, can be a positive thing. Examples include corrections when the rapid growth may actually supply a population that wouldn’t have existed to contribute otherwise. With sustained growth and rapid growth though there is a risk of overpopulation.   o Population growth, even rapid population growth, can be a positive thing.

    The consequences of rapid population growth in the 20th century are “the growth of cities, migration to Canada, the United States, Australia, and New Zeland; and an increase in the use of coal. A notorious global trend after World War II is migration and the growth of large cities.   Through extensive graphs, this book illustrates the global population explosion of the past years. Every nation with a recorded population history is represented among the graphs, which make a case for a fundamental shift from a Darwinian world of ruthless competition to a gentler one with weak restraints on growth/5.

    Human overpopulation (or population overshoot) is when there are too many people for the environment to sustain (with food, drinkable water, breathable air, etc.).In more scientific terms, there is overshoot when the ecological footprint of a human population in a geographical area exceeds that place's carrying capacity, damaging the environment faster than it can be repaired by nature. The concept of population growth is tricky because populations can grow exponentially – similar to the way a bank or credit card company compounds interest. The formula for exponential population growth is N=N 0 e rt where N 0 is the starting population, e is a logarithmic constant (), r is the rate of growth (birth rate minus death. The rapid growth of population has constituted serious problems especially in urban cities with great housing demand. This paper seeks to examine the consequences of rapid population growth on housing in Calabar. Findings show a high negative value of at 95% confidence level which also.
