Myanmar Population Forecasts, 1983-2013. - The pubMed
A scientist used 1973 and 1983 Population Survey to study various demographics affecting population increase, to predict the population' s projected height and to study the socio-economic impact of fast population increase on Myanmar. He had to adapt the 1983 figures because isolated areas were not censored.
He used the UN's general adoption scheme to produce 9 population forecasts. In the middle variation, the population of 35,442,972-64,504,980 would grow at an average of 2.02% per year between 1983-2013. In the low and middle age groups, the proportion of 15-year-olds would decrease from 38.75% to 28.84% and 29.53% respectively between 1983 and 2013.
A low variation forecast showed an upward trend to 40.95%. Dependence was highest in 1973 (.87), but dropped to .82 by 1983. Low and high variation forecasts showed that dependence remained high until 1998, then they would decrease continuously to 0.56 and 0.58 by 2013. As a result of the high forecast for variants, there was a small upward trend over the entire 30-year horizon, with the degree of dependence reaching its peak in 2003.
Myanmar's fast population increase has led to a reduction in available acres. From 1974 to 1990, the area under various cultures rose by only 8%, while the population rose by 22%. With regard to public healthcare, Myanmar would need an increase in the number of doctors and nursing staff in all forms in 2013 if the proportion of healthcare workers to the population could be kept stable (2.2 and 1.6 respectively).
With the high version, the numbers would have to more than doubble (8381-17,739 and 5335-12,974 respectively) in order to at least sustain the 83. If the teacher to pupil ratios could be kept at 1:39 (134, 116-341, 367), the number of professors needed in 2013 would also have to be more than doubled.
Myanmar therefore needs to plan its families in order to achieve socio-economic growth.
