This journal has been initiated to provide a forum for interdisciplinary studies on population-related topics in the Philippines. The aim is to provide information relevant to decision-making both at the individual level and for national policy. The policy of the journal is "(1) to recognize the important role played by each of the three processes of population change, namely: fertility, mortality, and migration; (2) to consider the implications of such processes on policies and programs and vice versa; and (3) to give due recognition to the valuable contributions of various disciplines to a better understanding of the population processes."
Selected items will be cited in this or subsequent issues of Population Index.
