At the turn of the 20th century its population was some 850,000; by 1950 it had more than doubled; and over the next 50 years it increased nearly 10-fold to exceed 16 million. • The city’s birth rate is much lower than that of the country as a whole because of family-planning programs. • The high overall growth rate is largely attributable to the influx of people in search of employment.
