1. Introduction

Population is becoming the most serious problem in this world. Overpopulation is the heavy burden in many developing countries. There will be not enough resources to sustain life. Many environmental, social, and economic problems from or are increased in magnitude by the overpopulation problem. For instance, there is a limited area of arable land and living space, such as India. That means no big country with large population has strong development.

In this report, I will use the Minitab to produce the statistics about the cross-section data of the population of Asian and European countries in year 2004, time series data about the population of Sweden from year 1984 to 2003.
