57:40685 Andorka, Rudolf. Policy responses to population decline in the twenty-first century: pronatalism, migration policy, growing labor force participation or other alternatives? [Tarsadalompolitikai valaszok a nepessegszam csokkenesere a 21. evszazadban: pronatalista nepesedespolitika, bevandorlasi politika, a foglalkoztatottsag novelese vagy mas alternativak?] Demografia, Vol. 33, No. 1-2, 1991. 7-23 pp. Budapest, Hungary. In Hun. with sum. in Eng.
The author proposes several policy approaches that could be implemented in developed countries in response to population decrease. "[It seems that] below replacement fertility [will] become a long-lasting phenomenon in the majority of developed countries. Considering the economic problems which this entails, developed societies have a choice between three policy options: to raise female employment,...to increase and to facilitate immigration,...[and] to increase the social benefits of families...." The author concludes that "while the increase in social benefits is the measure which is likely to have the most positive effects, the joint implementation of the three types of policies is called for."

57:40688 Dumon, Wilfried. Family policy in the EC countries: a general overview. Bevolking en Gezin, No. 1, 1991. 1-16 pp. Brussels, Belgium. In Eng.
Family policies in the countries of the European Community are analyzed and compared. The author notes a general shift in the target of such policies to meet the needs of children, one-parent families, and families in economic need. He also distinguishes among family policies that enable economic independence, offer nonmaterial support, and encourage the use of both informal and institutional supports.

"This paper investigates the assumptions underlying the concept of overpopulation. It argues that the basis of the overpopulation concept--the balancing of resources, within a given area, against population growth is fundamentally flawed, both in its assessment of resource availability and in its assumption that resources are equally available to all people within a given area. Following this assessment, the paper considers the way in which the concept of overpopulation, and in particular the theory of demographic transition, have been utilised in the development of population policy in South Africa."

This is an overview of China's population planning efforts since the early 1970s, and is a sequel to the author's earlier work covering the period 1949-1969. It describes progress in achieving China's Strategic Demographic Initiative, which the country adopted in 1978. The book is in three parts. The first part outlines the demographic background that has shaped current policies, including marriage and fertility trends. The second part describes the start-up, evolution, and objectives of current population policies and programs, and includes an analysis of objections and obstacles, as well as special consideration of induced abortion and sterilization. The third part assesses the social and economic relevance of China's population planning efforts, and examines both the costs and benefits of those efforts, the levels of success achieved, and the limits to population planning. An epilogue examines the most recent events affecting the program.

The author analyzes the effects of China's 1978 policy changes affording special privileges to minorities as reflected in the July 1990 census. Six minority nationalities have doubled in population size since 1982. This increase is attributed to the fact that: "first, minority nationalities are approved to have two children and to have three children under special conditions....Secondly, marriages between the Han and minority nationalities have increased. Their children are mostly reported as minority nationalities....Thirdly, before 1978, minority nationalities were looked down [upon] so that they...concealed their nationality origin and...lived as the Han nationality. Later most of them officially admitted and reported their nationalities [adding to the increase]."

M.2. Measures Affecting Fertility

Government policies aimed at directly influencing fertility and nuptiality, and policies with an indirect effect on fertility such as family allowances, pregnancy and maternity benefits, infant welfare measures, and government regulation of fertility controls, including abortion.

The author criticizes the agenda of some international agencies that focus on the slowing of population growth in the third world. She asserts that treating developing countries uniformly is not appropriate to the situation in Latin America. "In this region, while some inter and intra-country variability continues to exist, growth rates show a tendency for decline. In addition, women's reproductive intentions signal a desire for fewer children. There is, therefore, room for measures in the reproductive health area within general health programs, according to the principle of respect for the reproductive rights of individuals."

The authors examine future population policy directions for the Republic of Korea. Consideration is given to policies to date, growth, and recent changes in population control policy. "Considering the socio-economic conditions, and the large existing population in relation to the available land area and resources in Korea, however, future policy directions should aim at maintaining a mimimum population growth rate, and to postponing the achievement of 'Zero Population Growth' as long as possible in order to avoid the socio-economic problems that are bound to come as a consequence."

"As part of its One Child Policy, China developed the one child certificate which offered numerous benefits to couples who had one child and promised to have no more. Using data from the Two-per-Thousand National Fertility Survey, this study describes the level of certificate acceptance in Hebei province from 1979 to 1988 and analyzes socioeconomic, cultural and early family formation factors affecting certificate acceptance as well as the role of certificate acceptance on transition to second parity. During the past decade, the level of initial certificate acceptance was 22.6 percent....Public resistance to the One Child Policy is evident in declining acceptance from 26.0 percent during the first five years of the policy to 11.3 percent during the 1984-1988 period. Women's response to the certificate has been influenced by the woman's status as reflected in education and occupation as well as cultural traditions, particularly son preference. The one child certificate, however, independently depresses subsequent fertility."

The author critiques Paul Demeny's 1987 proposal designed to raise below-replacement fertility in developed countries. "His proposal is to link the old age economic security of parents to their fertility behaviour, strengthening the material position of those aged persons who have carried the financial burden of childraising by assigning some proportion of the social security contributions of children directly to their parents. I argue that...Demeny undermines the fertility-facilitating effect of conventional welfare policies and ignores the class-specific effects of existing pronatalist policies. I suggest that the adoption of additional welfare policies, apart from strengthening and correcting existing measures, would not only foster the achievement and maintenance of a socially adequate fertility level but also foster social justice for the individuals more directly involved in generational reproduction."

Demographic trends and population policies in China are reviewed. "China currently enjoys advanced levels of demographic development (low death-rate, low birth-rate, long life-expectancy, etc.) at a very early stage of economic development....Life-expectancy is fifteen to twenty years greater than would be predicted from the country's level of per capita income." The effect of government family planning programs and the one-child policy on the fertility decline is noted. The study includes sections on spatial patterns, with an emphasis on the uneven distribution of the population, development and demography, and temporal patterns. Problems resulting from the one-child policy are discussed, including developing a fair reimbursement system for couples who only have one child, averting female infanticide, and dealing with the over-indulged single child. Some possible solutions and areas for further study are proposed.

57:40702 Kojima, Hiroshi. Attitudes toward population trends and policy in Japan. Institute of Population Problems Working Paper Series, No. 5, Oct 1990. 36 pp. Institute of Population Problems: Tokyo, Japan. In Eng.
Results of a survey conducted in Japan in June of 1985 on attitudes concerning below-replacement fertility, and the population trends resulting from it, are presented. The focus is on the need for population policies in response to such trends. The results show a significant percentage of neutral attitudes, with 43 percent of the respondents favoring governmental measures and 16 percent opposed. Urban residents were more strongly in favor of profamily and pro-natalist policies, and this reaction is considered to be a reflection of the higher cost of living in metropolitan areas.

"The article is based mainly on comparative analyses of three nation-wide surveys on the acceptance of population policies carried out in the Federal Republic of Germany, in Italy and in the Netherlands between 1984 and 1987. Attitudes towards a new family policy in general and the acceptance of specific policies in particular are analyzed in relation to family situation and fertility intentions. Additionally, similarities and differences in policy acceptance and priorities are analyzed in relation to the social, cultural and economic context of the three countries....Intercounty differences in...female employment and the availability of facilities for mothers with young children seem to explain to a great extent the differences in acceptance of specific family policy measures."

The author examines the likely effects of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act in the United Kingdom, with particular reference to issues of fertility control. The author develops a defense of women's reproductive rights from a socialist perspective in response to a perceived attack from the ideological and political right, which promotes a return to the traditional role of women and the family. The history of working-class women's struggle for health care, contraception, the right to abortion, and fertility treatment is described. The political issues implicit in the subject of fertility control are emphasized.

"Free access to contraception and effective legislation measures, have resulted in a decline in fertility in Singapore. A new population policy of 'three children or more if you can afford it' was therefore introduced in 1986. This paper discusses the new population policies and measures their effect on fertility in Singapore....Since 1986, there has been a rise in the crude birth rate, total fertility rate and gross reproduction rate, and the abortion rate has progressively declined. However, the fertility trends may just reflect the upward movement of children born during the 'baby boom' to come within the peak reproductive age of 25-35 years."

In Hun. with sum. in Eng.
Reforms to the family allowance system in Hungary that take into account children's ages rather than the number of children are proposed. The author suggests that such reforms could increase the pronatalist effect of such policies without the need for additional government expenditure.

In this brief essay, the author critically evaluates the 1990 changes to U.S. immigration law. He refutes the premise of pending labor shortages that was used to justify the need for the legislation and criticizes virtually all of its provisions. He characterizes the law as "ill conceived, deceptively designed, poorly timed, and subtly racist. Despite the chronic need for reform, the Immigration Act of 1990 cannot possibly be described as being in the national interest. It perpetuates and expands the worst features of the existing system while introducing new features that are both counterproductive and, in parts, unethical in the principles it projects."
