Over-population In The Philippines (Cause and Effect)

The Philippines is already experiencing over-population. Our country is one of the most over-populated country. It is the 12th most over-populated country in the whole world. Many of the people here in the Philippines, especially teenagers, are engaged in prostitution and pre-marital sex, which is two of the most common causes of over-population.
Over-population is existing and increasing because also of poverty. Many of the female teenagers nowadays tend to sell "themselves" just for money, so that they will be able to have something for their expenses, and in some cases, for their school fees and/or their families. In fact, because of these things Philippines is also starting to suffer from some diseases, such as, AIDS, STD, HIV, and also malnutrition - only common to some parts or provinces of the Philippines.

You can't use the term over-population. Overpopulation means human presence exceeds the holding or limit of our country.

If you herd the total population of our country and put them side by side in the island of Mindanao, theres still a lot of room to wiggle.

The term should be runaway population growth.

Overpopulation happens when the CARRYING CAPACITY of an environment is exceeded for a population and this environment is not able to support such population without degradation, which means, it can support this population forever and sooner or later (usually sooner) there´ll be shortages...

Overpopulation has nothing to do with SPACE.
