- Of numerous attempts to describe population
and related problems which are currently
under way, a prevalent tendency appears
to be to approach the crux of the problems
only by quantitative methods. While it
appears misleading to view population and
related problems disregarding the figures and
statistics, many specialists in the field begin
to recognize the importance of a qualitative
approach, especially when the problems are
approached from the angle of medical and
public health view points.
It is not an easy task, however, to
successfully employ both the quantitative
and qualitative methods simultaneously.
Also, no specific methods ever seem to have
been devisei to meet the above objective.
Many meth 퍼s can be tried... including the
demographic method, genetic and eugenic
method, and others for this purpose. The
applicability of a given methodology varies
from a country to another, and this could
form an obstacle in successfully employing
the dual methods. The following will discuss
some of the qualitative aspects which need
to be considered in the study of population.
