"The present research uses available data for 126 nations, circa 1983, to examine the cross-sectional relationship between national income and fertility. Initially, interest is in assessing the extent of variability in this relationship among societies at different stages of economic development. Second, this relationship is decomposed into its direct and indirect parts through the use of a plausible recursive model containing school enrollment and infant mortality as sequentially intervening variables." The results show that both the cross-sectional relationship between national income and fertility and the impact of the two intervening variables chosen vary widely by stage of economic development reached. The authors suggest that "the variability in the relationships is relevant both to traditional views of demographic transition and to alternative approaches based on the differentiation of nations within a larger world economy, as well as to the implementation of social programs in the context of fertility reduction strategies."

53:10676 Alonso, William. Population and regional development. Center for Population Studies Discussion Paper, No. 87-4, Feb 1987. 18 pp. Harvard University, Center for Population Studies: Cambridge, Massachusetts. In Eng.
The author studies the influence of population factors on regional development. He focuses on the impact of labor on regional policy and identifies three key aspects: non-homogeneity of populations, the nature of migration, and the quality of populations. Along with demographic dynamics, he considers "the internal differentiation of populations by age, by ethnicity, by sex, by attitude and education, and by any other ways which affect their capacity to contribute differentially to regional development." Current models and regional theory are discussed, and the need for further study of social aspects of regional development is emphasized.

53:10677 Tabah, Leon. Interrelationships between population and development. Population Bulletin of the United Nations, No. 19-20, 1987. 97-104 pp. New York, New York. In Eng.
"This paper advances the thesis that the work of the [U.N.] Population Division demonstrates that it is possible to do scientific research in the field of population/development relationships which is free of ideological influence, even when that work is guided and supervised by a highly political parent body. A sharp contrast is made between the documentation prepared by the Secretariat, which adheres firmly to an objective evaluation of facts, and the discussions at conferences of governmental representatives, which generally have an ideological orientation." The research discussed covers socioeconomic aspects of the aging process; interrelationships among population, resources, the environment, and economic development; and the determinants and consequences of population trends.

This publication contains papers presented at the twenty-sixth conference of the Gesellschaft fur Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften des Landbaues, held in Berlin on October 2-4, 1985. The conference focused on the relationships among population development, agrarian structure, and rural areas. The papers are divided into three main sections. The first deals with the population situation and its determining factors. Individual papers cover world population projections, theories of the relationship between population growth and economic development, the agricultural response to population growth, and rural-urban spatial distribution. The remaining two sections focus on population trends and rural areas in developed and developing countries, respectively. The problems of both declining and growing populations are examined, the socioeconomic and agricultural impact is discussed, and case studies are presented. Policy aspects are also considered.

Center for the Study of Population Working Paper, No. 87-37, [1987?]. 13, [9] pp. Florida State University, College of Social Sciences, Center for the Study of Population: Tallahassee, Florida. In Eng.
"Two basic hypotheses relating the number of children in households to the income and expenditures of parents are tested. The first argues that as the number of children in households increases parental income increases; and the second, that as the number of children in households increases parental expenditures decrease. Employing tabular and partial correlation techniques we find support for both hypotheses." The data, collected in 1980, are for Syria and concern 300 rural households.

Changes in the relationship between population factors and the development process in Mexico from 1940 to the present are reviewed. The authors show how the development that occurred up to about 1970 both absorbed and encouraged rapid population growth. They then describe how the emergence of problems concerning this relationship led to the development of a population policy during the 1970s. "The paper then takes up the implementation of that policy and the determinants of the fertility decline that took place afterwards, and closes with a brief review of the implications that demographic considerations have for Mexico's future."

In Fre. with sum. in Eng.
"This article describes to what extent a rice-growing development project, begun in 1979 in northern Cameroon, modified the demographic and migratory characteristics of the population within the zone of influence. A representative sample and a control group were followed from 1979 to 1981 using a multi-round survey technique. Data from the general population census (1976) were used to study the population's characteristics from 1976 to 1979."
The study population is linked to 1976 census data, and various demographic estimates for the population are produced. An examination of migration patterns in the area indicates that "the project had not yet succeeded in attracting the populations living in the more distant zones two years after its installation."

The relationship between population growth and agricultural development in Latin America during the past two decades is analyzed. Data are taken from various published sources. The author concludes that, in general, the growth in food supply has kept ahead of the growth in population, but certain areas have experienced a decline in levels of nutrition. Although cereal production has grown considerably, the production of other foods has suffered from competition from export crops.

This study is concerned with the relationship between population growth and technological change in the course of economic development. The author critically reviews the work of Malthus, Marx, and Boserup in the context of the current situation in which developing countries must cope with rapid population growth and the influx of technological change from the developed world. The experience of England during the industrial revolution and demographic transition is first discussed. The author then compares developments in other capitalist countries that imported technological change from England with the experience of Soviet Russia. Consideration is also given to the views of Ghandi and Mao on these relationships.
The author concludes that effective technological change occurs only when it evolves from traditional technology, and that this is a process that is "determined by population growth and level of social consciousness."

53:10689 Narayana, D. L. Population growth and economic growth. Indian Economic Journal, Vol. 32, No. 2, Oct-Dec 1984. 1-40 pp. Bombay, India. In Eng.
The issues arising from the impact of population growth on the prospects for socioeconomic development in developing countries are reviewed. The author begins by describing Malthusian and neo-Malthusian approaches to this topic, with particular emphasis on the 1972 Club of Rome limits to growth study. The conclusion reached is that the world's resources are, to all intents and purposes, unlimited, but that population control is a necessary adjunct of efforts to exploit them.

The authors use a cross-sectional analysis of the rural population of various states of India to examine differential demographic behavior. The data are from the 1981 census and other published sources. The demographic variables considered are crude birth rate (CBR), crude death rate (CDR), infant mortality rate (IMR), mean age at marriage, and total fertility rate. Among the socioeconomic factors considered are literacy, per capita income, school enrollment, poverty ratio, the ratio of agricultural to nonagricultural workers, and a composite index of rural development
"On the basis of coefficients of correlation a significant relationship was found between the level of rural development and almost all the demographic variables except the total fertility rate (TFR)....Mean age at marriage was positively correlated and that too quite significantly, whereas the other demographic variables were negatively correlated....[A] pronounced negative relationship was found between general literacy and CBR, CDR and IMR. A highly positive relationship was evident between the general literacy rate and the mean age at marriage. In particular, the enrollment of girls in school (11-14 age-group) seemed to be most influential in shaping demographic behaviour in rural areas...."

The authors examine the relationship between population growth and agricultural change using a village-level study of the Warli tribal community in Maharashtra, India. "This paper tries to highlight the relationship that exists between the two factors and the relative changes in the structural character of the two factors. It also focuses on the complications brought about by the juxtaposition of a market economy of the nontribals on the subsistence peasant agriculture of the Warli tribals. Methodology is empirical. Suitable statistical aids have been used on available census material [for the years 1901-1971], substantiated with fieldwork."

Economic development in Ethiopia from 1953 to 1980 is analyzed, with particular reference to governmental efforts at agricultural planning. The authors conclude that the dominant forces governing the period were accelerated population growth and the declining availability of arable land, which, combined with the failure of governmental efforts at agricultural planning, led to catastrophe. The changes implemented by the present government, although not primarily responsible for the present problems, seem to have had adverse effects and to have decreased both agricultural productivity and yields.

The impact of women's relative economic contribution to the household on the fertility decision-making process in Malaysia is analyzed using data from the Malaysian Family Life Survey of 1976-1977. "Two multiple regression techniques were used: logistic regression and two-least squares where wife's and husband's desires for additional children were assumed to be simultaneously determined."
The results indicate that women who contribute relatively more to the household are more likely to want more children, while their husbands are less likely. Although relative income is not significant, differences among ethnic groups persist, with Malay husbands and wives seeing more economic benefits from large families than do other groups.
This work was prepared as a doctoral dissertation at Johns Hopkins University.

The relationship between population growth and socioeconomic development efforts in Zimbabwe is examined using data from official sources including a 10 percent sample from the 1982 census, and from international sources. The country's national development goals are first outlined. Next, current demographic trends are described. The report then analyzes the relationships among demographic factors and such factors as urban growth and housing, education, health, agricultural development, wood resources, gross domestic product, employment, and labor force and child dependency. The effects of development on fertility are also considered. The report, which is one of a series sponsored under the Resources for the Awareness of Population Impacts on Development (RAPID) program, concludes by summarizing the potential negative impact of rapid population growth in several areas.

"Using a purely theoretical analysis we show how long run demoeconomic behavior depends on household preferences, productivity and the cost of childrearing. In particular a dominant trend in growth can be interspersed with periods of fluctuation as slowly moving changes in productivity, preference and child care costs push nonlinearities past crucial bifurcation points. Moreover, under 'robust conditions' nonperiodic, essentially unpredictable demoeconomic behavior can occur, thus suggesting a possible explanation for persistent and substantial errors in population forecasts."
The geographic focus is on developed countries.

This is a study of the demographic and household processes that characterize an agro-pastoral people, the Tamang, living in north central Nepal. It is based on fieldwork undertaken in 1981 and 1982 and uses a combination of anthropological and demographic methodologies. The author's main theme is that the community studied is on the brink of a radical transformation causes primarily by the inability of the local environment to support the population's subsistence needs. The most important cause of this situation is identified as population growth, which is in turn a function of how the local economy is organized. The author examines the adaptive strategies employed by the community and how they intersect with demographic and household processes. Three major processes are considered: the annual subsistence cycle, demographic processes of fertility and population expansion, and the household developmental cycle.

"The relationship between AFDC, Food Stamp, and Medi-Cal Program eligibility, on the one hand, and labor force participation, on the other, was analyzed by comparing the labor force participation rates of women of Mexican origin who were 'fully eligible' for these programs with those of 'less eligible' women. Marital status, husband's income, and legal residence in the United States were used to define levels of program eligibility for this sample. The effects of education, English fluency, age, the number and ages of children, and the number of other adults in the household (excluding the mother and spouse) were controlled in logistic regression procedures."

Data are primarily taken from the census. Factors affecting women's entry into and exit from the labor force are analyzed, including fertility, age of children, and marital status.

An analysis of the employment histories of women with children in the United Kingdom in the 1960s and 1970s is presented. The data are from the Medical Research Council's National Survey of Health and Development and concern a cohort of women born in 1946. The focus is on the first paid work these women undertook after becoming mothers and the extent to which this job involved a change in occupation from the job held before the first birth. Issues considered include causes of the low economic status of many women's jobs; the utilization of available human resources; the labor market consequences of fertility; the opportunity costs of fertility; and the effect on fertility decisions of employment prospects.

The authors examine the role of U.S. women in the labor force in recent decades, with a focus on working women and day care for their children in the 1980s. "Following a review of structural changes in the economy and accompanying demographic trends leading to the changing role of women in the labor force, we will examine how famlies today are caring for their children while the mother is at work, and the extent to which employers and state, local, and federal governments currently address these concerns. A concluding section will speculate on the way in which current demographic trends relating to delayed childbearing, marital instability, and declining family size will affect the labor force participation of women with children. We will also examine the ability of public and private employers to handle the potential demands placed upon them by women with young children." Data are primarily from the June 1982 Current Population Survey.

Recent trends in labor force participation among young U.S. women are reviewed, with primary consideration given to ways in which they juggle job and family responsibilities. The authors identify the provision of adequate and affordable child care facilities as the major factor affecting employment, particularly among poorly educated and low income women.

Een duurzaam engagement.] Bevolking en Gezin, No. 3, Dec 1984. 237-48 pp. Brussels, Belgium. In Dut. with sum. in Eng.
Labor force participation in Belgium among young married women with a family is examined using data from the 1982-1983 NEGO IV fertility survey. The results indicate a trend away from the U-shaped labor force participation pattern in which women left the labor force to have children and only returned when the youngest child reached school age.

"Work shifts of full-time dual-earner couples are analyzed with data from the May 1980 U.S. Current Population Survey. Over 20 percent of husbands and about 12 percent of wives work other than a regular day shift. Variations in shift work status by sex of spouse are examined according to job, race, and life-cycle characteristics. A multivariate analysis indicates that a different composite of factors affects the shift work status of husbands and wives. Given the wide variation in the prevalence of non-day employment within major groups and the sex segregation of the labor force, we look at detailed occupations and industries to the extent possible."

The authors first discuss inconsistencies in census data concerning the economically active population of Mexico, especially in the 1980 census. They then give their reasons for believing that correction of these inconsistencies is necessary. Finally, they present their proposals for adjusting the census data to rectify these inconsistencies.
