dc.description.abstractOne alternative is based on the national demographic goal of maintaining fertility at replacement level of GRR = 1.025 in order to achieve zero population growth (ZPG), and to stabilize the future population. The results reveal that ZPG can be attained in 2033 with the population stabilizing thereafter at 3.6M. The second alternative is based on fertility remaining below replacement level at 1980 GRR = 0.841, and in this case the population will peak at only 3.1M in 2020 and decline thereafter. The prospect of a declining population in the near future calls for a review and reversal of certain aspects of the existing population control programme.-from Author
