Abdullah, Mohd Syahrizal (2017) Macroeconomic determinants of urban population growth in emerging Asean countries / Mohd Syahrizal Abdullah. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA, Johor.


Economists are torn between three speculations; one that express that population development helps a country's economy by animating monetary development and improvement and another that constructs its hypothesis. For instance, overpopulation and population development puts a gigantic measure of weight on assets, which bring about a chain response of issues as the country develops. The third school of thought is that populace development has any effect on monetary development. The objective of this research is to find out the the relationship of macroeconomic factors such as Gross Domestic Product (GDP) , Inflation Rate, Interest Rate, and Unemployment Rate , Fertility Rate ( , and Population Growth (annual change) with the growth of urban population in ASEAN countries.Urban population growth was used as dependent variable while Gross domestic product (GDP), Inflation rate, Interest rate, unemployment rate, life expectancy and population growth was used as independent variables. The data used is a secondary data, and mostly the sources of data came from EIU Data Country, IndexMundi, and World Bank Indicators. The result of the analysis will be obtained by running the data on E-Views (for interpreting the data). Microsoft Excel was used to combine the data collected and others supporting documents to help with the analysis. The method used in this research is Multiple Linear Regression (Panel Least Squares).
