DEMOGRAPHIC PROFILLING

 

The demographic approach in planning is the consideration of man and population, the object and instrument of development. Thus, an effective development planning requires reliable and comprehensive knowledge in population characteristics particularly the pattern/trends of population growth and distribution, and such other demographic features, which may influence future development. The study in population is therefore a vital step that should be undertaken so that the proper allocation and setting of various needs of the populace can be attained.

The decrease in growth rate from 1990 to 2000 can be attributed to migration brought by the fall of coffee industry and low agricultural production for over a decade. The slight increase in population from 2000 to 2010 can be attributed to housing projects and economic recovery of Amadeo through agri-tourism program.
