ABSTRACT

This study examines the effect of overpopulation on standard in Nigeria.  Thus, Malthusian theory of population is relevant to Nigeria as a developing economy but this theory is not used in this research due to lack of empirical and scientific evidence. The study used trend analysis of the study with the scope spanning between 1985 and 2014.  The study adopted ordinary least square method of analysis in examining the time series properties using the Augmented Dickey-Fuller unit root test.  The analysis showed that only population has no unit root at all level but both GDP per capita and life expectancy at birth has unit root. The study revealed that population growth has negative on standard of living proxied as GDP Per Capita. The study later proffers various policies options which government can implement for better economic development as a result of continuous population growth.
