A REVIEW OF LINEAR PROGRAMMING
PROBLEM IN POPULATION PROJECTION Author: Olawepo G.T, Adeoye Akeem O., Alabi Risikat.A and Ibrahim W.M Abstract: This paper, programming problem in population projection concern a population model relating to the birth rate to a stable age
distribution and a stable rate of population growth. We assume that changes in the male population structure are consistent
with the assumption of constant birth rate bi and that births are independent of deaths, we consider a population of females at
discrete intervals and break the population into A age groups (1,2,… A) corresponding to unit intervals of time. we derive the
system of linear difference equation. A non-linear programming problem was formulated to determine the birth rate that
minimizing the sum of the cost due to changing in the current birth rate and the cost of social goods and services associated
with resulting age distribution. |

MODELLING OF POPULATION PROJECTION
AND SYMPTOMATIC ESTIMATED
POPULATION IN NIGERIA Author: Fasagba Irewole, Adeoye Akeem O., Babalola J. B and Kuranga J.L Abstract:This research modeling of population projection in Nigeria is aim to model an equation for Nigeria population and to make a
projection of Nigeria population .Multiple linear regression using SPSS was used and the equation obtained is
Y=37184.262+0.825X1+1.051X2+1.654X3, When this equation is used to estimate the symptomatic value and compared with the
National Population Commission value, it was discovered that Symptomatic Estimated population for Nigeria is approximately
the same with National Population Commission that is . the symptomatic Estimated is 163,736,835 while that of NPC is
163,609,494, we there by recommend that the model obtained in this research can be use to project population in Nigeria |
