    Optimum population has been defined in a number of ways but commonly it involves the concept of an ideal population living and working

    in a given area. The number of people in that area will be in close balance with the resources available. Such a definition implies that a

    state of equilibrium will exist between population and resources. If the population is below the optimum population then the area will be

    under-populated, whereas if numbers exceed the optimum population then the area can be said to be over-populated.
