Economic development, the process whereby simple, low-income national economies are transformed into modern industrial gh the term is sometimes used as a synonym for economic growth, generally it is employed to describe a change in a country’s economy involving qualitative as well as quantitative theory of economic development.   Age structure data allow the rate of growth (or decline) to be associated with a population’s level of economic development. For example, the population of a country with rapid growth has a triangle-shaped age structure with a greater proportion of younger individuals who are at or close to reproductive age. Economic development is a process of structural transformation with continuous technological innovation and industrial upgrading, which increase labor productivity, and accompanied improvements in infrastructure and institution, which reduce transaction costs.
