    The government of Zimbabwe has taken into account the seriousness of population factors on socioeconomic development. The government has taken care to include various population programs in its National Development Plans. Independence for Zimbabwe heralded problems with insufficient demographic and socioeconomic data. The government in 1982, implemented its 1st census, followed by a national survey on Zimbabwean households. Present day population programs deal with data collection and provision of family planning and population awareness programs. Zimbabwe shares population problems similar to other developing countries: internal and external migration; high mortality and morbidity rates; and the low status of women. In response to these, the government has implemented various population programmes dealing with health care, family planning, and creating equity in all facets of society. The government of Zimbabwe recognizes and endorses the principles of national sovereignty and respect for the rights of individuals, as outlined in the World Population Plan of Action.
