Some public policy choices currently facing the United States are considered. The primary questions considered are "what should be the U.S. policy toward rapid population growth in the Third World, and what should be our policy toward slow population growth in the industrialized countries...." The main emphasis is on areas of apparent consensus rather than on subjects of controversy.

"In this paper I argue that unequal distribution of the costs of children between men and women has been reinforced by public policies that have served the interests of men as fathers as well as the interests of those employers and taxpayers who are not also mothers. Taking an historical approach, I trace changes in the patriarchal content of policies towards mothers in three separate arenas: family policy, labor market policy, and the welfare system." The geographic focus is on the United States.

"Although family planning remains mandatory in China and third children continue to be prohibited, substantial evidence suggests that the country's birth planning program has become more lenient in the past two years. This note reports key changes in policy and practice at the national, provincial, and local levels, drawing out some of the broader shifts in policy approach."
The author notes that "even though fertility policy is likely to remain restrictive, the degree to which high-pressure methods are applied in the program is likely to decrease further. As long as China continues to place top priority on developing the economy and universalizing education, children will become more expensive and less useful. In turn, fertility aspirations will decline further."

The main objective of a population policy for Poland is identified as the attainment of a stable population with at least replacement level fertility. The author suggests that the change to this objective should be planned to take two or three generations. A secondary objective is defined as improving population quality through better health, welfare, and cultural programs. The difficulty of distinguishing specific population policy measures from general socioeconomic development policy is noted.

This is a collection of papers focusing on U.S. policies concerning the world population situation, prepared as background material for the 71st American Assembly held in Harriman, New York, April 17-20, 1986. A report prepared at the meeting and an introduction by the editor are also included. A major theme of the book is the recent change in the U.S. policy perspective on global population growth away from a consensus that rapid rates of population growth in the developing world hindered socioeconomic development efforts and that the United States should therefore support efforts to slow population growth, toward a belief that population growth is, of itself, a neutral phenomenon, and that U.S. policy concerns should be focused on the promotion of a market economy.
The report of the 71st Assembly reaffirmed support for traditional U.S. population policies designed to reduce high fertility both because of the benefits to individual women and children and because "rapid population growth in the least developed countries (acting primarily through the effects of high fertility) has substantial and generally negative economic and social effects...."

"The objectives of the study are three fold: (1) to evaluate the population policy measures/strategies of Thailand's Fifth Plan, how and why could they bring about faster decline in the rates of population growth in Thailand; (2) to investigate various population policies and programs which have been adopted in other Asian countries such as the People's Republic of China, South Korea, and Taiwan. The latter have experienced a faster decline in fertility and population growth rates; and (3) to analyze which of these population policies could be applied to Thailand."
The author concludes that "Thailand needs a comprehensive population policy which includes the following measures: (1) comprehensive family planning services; (2) incentives and disincentives; and (3) socioeconomic development, in order to achieve the goal of population."
This work was prepared as a doctoral dissertation at the University of Pittsburgh.

In Ger. with sum. in Eng; Fre.
The authors assess the impact of pro-natalist policies in France, Austria, and Sweden. After a discussion of the differences between population policy and family policy, the difficulties in measuring policy effectiveness are outlined. Differences between short-term and long-term policy effects are emphasized.
"The long-term impact on the average number of children of French female generations is estimated to be only 0.2 to 0.3 more children. Although Austria too has developed an expansive and generous system to equalize the economic situation of families, its intention is declaredly not pronatalist. Any effects on the average number of children of Austrian women are not recognizable....In the 1930s and later in the 1970s Sweden had taken measures to provide young couples with a better compatibility of economic activity and family life. Any long-term effects cannot be shown."

In Afr. with sum. in Eng.
"The purpose of the study was to assess the possibility that the [South African] National Family-Planning and Population Development Programmes of the Department of National Health and Population Development would achieve the fertility goals set by the Scientific Committee of the President's Council in 1983 for the country as a whole."
The analysis indicates "gross disparities between the levels of socio-economic development, mortality and fertility of the four main population groups." Whereas white fertility is already below replacement level and the fertility of Coloureds and Indians is likely to be by the target date provided the use of effective contraception increases, there is no evidence that replacement-level fertility can be achieved among blacks in the forseeable future.
"Factors that contribute to this view include the low levels of socio-economic development due particularly to isolation from the modern living environment in the country; the current high fertility and child mortality levels, low levels of effective contraceptive use (particularly sterilization); the lack of dynamic family-planning programmes in the Black states, the predominantly traditional lifestyle of most Blacks; the migrant labour system, and the non-availability of abortion on request."

"An analysis is presented of the Romanian fertility transition and the problematic relation between the Romanian government's strongly pronatalist policy stance and the desires of the Romanian populace to minimize fertility....Pronatal measures enacted by the Romanian government, including both coercive and non-coercive types, have by and large failed to produce desired fertility increases. The reasons for this failure are analyzed...."
Patterns observed in fertility transitions in socialist countries are compared with those in Western and developing countries.

52:40789 Wolfson, Margaret. The politics of population. Harvard International Review, Vol. 8, No. 4, Mar 1986. 4-8, 32 pp. Cambridge, Massachusetts. In Eng.
The author seeks to outline some of the major factors influencing the implementation of population policies in an increasing number of countries during the last three decades. The enactment of anti-natalist policies in several Southern and Southeastern Asian countries is briefly described. Attention is then given to the influence of Marxist beliefs and the Catholic church on the implementation of pro-natalist policies since the Bucharest conference in 1974. The roles of international agencies and foreign governments are considered, and the emphasis of governments on the societal and individual welfare aspects of their population policies in encouraging compliance is described.

The hypothesis is developed that "while the stated functions of the [U.S.] Immigration and Naturalization Service are to exclude, and if necessary, deport all undocumented aliens in this country,...the true purpose of this government agency...is to regulate the flow of undocumented aliens into this country and thus insure the availability of a cheap and tractable labor force to satisfy the needs of American employers."

The author examines various migration programs that have been instituted in Indonesia to encourage the movement of people away from Java and other populated islands to less-populated outer islands. "Existing reports were reanalyzed to identify similarities and differences in policy approach and impacts on the growing overpopulation of Java. Among the factors considered are government management versus private initiative, nature of resettlement services, as well as impacts on the settlers and on the Indonesian economy."
The author finds that "since the early years of [the] 20th century the policy instruments to overcome the problems have been solely agricultural land-settlement schemes. Some changes in basic orientation and objectives during the independent era, until 1983, had not been followed with adequate changes in basic policy design and administrative machinery. The results are clear: unsatisfactory policy impacts."

The author compares the population resettlement programs undertaken in connection with the construction of dams at Lake Volta in Ghana and Kainji Lake in Nigeria. Data are from published sources and from a 1971 survey conducted by the author in Nigeria. Differences between the policies and procedures are outlined. It is noted that "these differences resulted in the differences in the patterns of adjustment of the resettled people."
