[2] The Exposition

The human resources have numerous dimensions or aspects. The two prominent dimensions that come to one's mind are the quantitative dimension and the qualitative dimension.

The Quantitative Dimension

The quantitative dimension means the total number of human population in any given spatial unit like the total number of males, females, young and old, etc. It can further be subdivided into more parts:

1. Constructive

2. Destructive

The constructive aspect includes features like the availability of labour force for exploitation of spatial resources, etc.

The destructive aspect includes features like pressure of human population on carrying capacity of resources like land, etc.

The Qualitative Dimension

The qualitative dimension of human resources means the quality of human population in any given spatial unit in terms of features like the   human wisdom, intelligence, skill, knowledge, health, education, etc. It can further be subdivided into two more parts:

1. Constructive

2. Destructive

The constructive aspect includes features like wise use of available resources both permanent and non-permanent for sustainable economic development, etc.

The destructive aspect includes the features like the human greed, deceit, killings, wars, etc. that ultimately destroy/deplets/degrades the resources or upgrades/enhances their quality.

The proper understanding of the concept of the dimensions of the human resources helps in evaluating the prospects of economic development of a given spatial unit
