  Attempts have been made to investigate the interrelationship among population change, health, environment and development in global level using secondary data from WHO and United Nations. USA (for Index of Health facilities (IH) and Environment (IE)) and Switzerland (for Index of Development (ID) and Quality of Life (IQL)) were at the top ranking position in 1990 but in 2000 they came down to 2nd and 3rd position. Cross tabulation analysis reveals all the indices are significantly associated with one another in both the years. With respect to quality of life using stepwise regression analysis, results shows that ID and IH are at first and second step and same for both the years. However, at the third step they are different. The path analysis also indicates that quality of life improved when health facilities increased but the quality of life decreased with increase in population in both the years.
