Zero Population Growth

Zero population growth is an ideal condition when the birth rate equals death rate and the replacement level is 2. Zero population growth is often a goal of demographic planners and environmentalists who believe that reducing population growth is essential for the health of the ecosystem. Preserving cultural traditions and ethnic diversity is a factor for not allowing human populations levels or rates to fall too low. Zero population growth is seen with increase in elderly population which is opposite to demographic dividend.
