The authors discuss the need for and logistics of integrated population and development planning, including the location and function of a population unit, the provision of demographic inputs, the analysis of relationships between population and development, and the use of demographic-economic models. The integration of population variables in sectoral planning (with examples from the fields of agriculture, health, education, housing, and manpower) and in regional planning is also discussed.

Publicatiereeks van de Werkgroep Ontwikkeling en Veiligheid, No. 15, Dec 1985. 25 pp. Rijksuniversiteit te Groningen, Werkgroep Ontwikkeling en Veiligheid: Groningen, Netherlands. In Eng.
The author attempts to create a framework for analyzing the interrelationships between economic development and population growth. "This paper is concerned primarily with these long-term relationships, i.e. with a lag of 10 years or more. It tries to sketch a concept for a model that can be used for testing the significance of a large number of these postulated relationships. The initial purpose of the model was to test the asserted influence of the personal income distribution on population growth....Another purpose of the paper is to indicate a possible way of extending long-run economic models by means of including a demographic section."
An overview of the model is first presented. "Section 3 is concerned with the possibilities and the problems of estimating the model and its possible uses, and...section 4 will discuss the similarities and differences between the model and some other demo-economic models."

52:30684 Quibria, M. G. Fertility behaviour under uncertainty: comment. Bangladesh Development Studies, Vol. 11, No. 3, Sep 1983. 135-9 pp. Dhaka, Bangladesh. In Eng.
The author critically assesses a model developed by Tawfiq-e-Elahi Chowdhury concerning fertility behavior in an uncertain economic environment. He concludes that "mere risk-aversion is not enough to lead to lower fertility with a reduction of uncertainty in future income. One requires a further restriction in the form of decreasing absolute risk-aversion to establish the Chowdhury result. Similarly, a higher marginal return from children does not necessarily lead to higher fertility; nor would a higher current income necessarily induce a lower family-size. To establish these results, one needs to incorporate further hypotheses regarding the structure of the utility function."

"The paper seeks intuitively-satisfying models of optimum population growth. The authors build upon Phelps's model of endogenous technical progress plus the Steinmann-Simon extension, which imply that the per-person consumption growth rate depends positively and linearly upon the population growth rate, without bound....They suggest that the consumption rate ultimately turns downwards as population growth increases because of decreasing adoption of available technology as labor cheapens relative to capital, and as high population growth overtaxes people's will and ability to respond. Including a convex-downward function in the model yields sensible results."

"This chapter explores the relations between demographic changes--particularly the decline in mortality--and changes in agrarian structure. It describes the main transformations in the agrarian sector in Latin America in the past 100 years, with emphasis on the transformation from a non-capitalist economy with a relative lack of labour force into one in which capitalist relations prevail and give way to processes that generate a surplus labour force. It points out the role played by population growth in this transformation, and particularly the effects of the decline in mortality."
The authors contend that "in spatial and temporal situations, demographic changes and conditions can impose new arrangements in practices and strategies with a view to ensuring the economic and social reproduction of agrarian production units and of families. The most relevant...conclusion is the need to undertake specific studies in different agrarian contexts to allow a deeper analysis of relations between transformations in agrarian structure and demographic dynamics."

In Fre.
This study examines the relationships among rapid population growth, internal migration, and agricultural developments in Rwanda in the period since 1948. The data are primarily taken from the censuses of 1948 and 1978. The author examines how population growth has led to the cultivation of land, not only in upland areas but also in the lowland marshes, that was previously uncultivated. He also notes that migration is affected not only by population density but also by the quality of the land in question. The focus of the study is on the future agricultural development options available to the population.

"This paper aims at analysing the level, trend and conditions of fertility decline in selected underdeveloped countries within the framework of a demand-supply model....The analysis focuses on how much of the observed decline in fertility has been associated with corresponding socio-economic (demand) factors and how much is explained by the effort of their family planning system." Fertility data for 42 developing countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America for the years 1960-1980 are analyzed. Demand variables include education, health, economic status, and urbanization factors; supply variables refer to program effort, or the strength of family planning programs in a given country. Correlation and regression analyses are used.
"The findings of this paper point to the fact that if any country wishes to reduce its birth rate and marital fertility then strong and motivated family planning programmes can play a decisive role even within a low level of socio-economic development....It is quite evident that level of 'modernization'...[has] a substantial relationship to fertility decline: the better-off countries, particularly those near the top, do better than the less well-off. That is an accepted fact in demographic theory but similarly we also find that family planning programmes have an independent and substantial effect on levels of fertility."

Proceedings of the symposium held at Cairo Demographic Centre, 3-7 November 1985. CDC Research Monograph Series, No. 14, 1986. 533-62 pp. Cairo, Egypt. In Eng.
The author discusses population growth and its components in developing countries in terms of a development-oriented population policy. The problem of lack of consensus and articulation concerning the concept of development is first considered. The author then examines how socioeconomic development and related policies influence population phenomena such as fertility, health, mortality, human resources, and migration.

Proceedings of the symposium held at Cairo Demographic Centre, 3-7 November 1985. CDC Research Monograph Series, No. 14, 1986. 69-88 pp. Cairo, Egypt. In Eng.
After reviewing the impact of rapid population increase on development in Egypt, the author discusses three models that describe the direct association between population growth and investment: the Coale-Hoover model, the Harrod-Domar model, and Sauvy's model. Sauvy's model is then applied to the case of Egypt "to estimate the proportion of population and economic investment in response to different population growth rates and different proportions of total investment." The author concludes with some policy implications.

An overview of the relationship between demographic factors and rural poverty in developing countries is presented. The author examines both the micro- and macro-level perspectives of this relationship and the determinants and consequences of population growth. The author notes the prospects for a rapid increase in the rural labor force and considers its implications for the agricultural production structure and the need for institutional change. Consideration is also given to the continuing demand for high fertility at the family level and the role of infant and child mortality in the poverty cycle.
"The paper concludes by drawing attention to the need for developing the mechanism for reconciliation of social and individual optima with respect to family size and population growth." The need for rural development projects that take demographic factors into account is stressed as is the need for effective population programs.

The author develops a framework for examining the effects of foreign capital resources, income inequality, and rapid population growth on the economic growth of developing countries. "The aim of this paper is to specify and estimate, using international cross-section data for a set of developing countries, a simultaneous equations model in which saving and growth rates and demographic factors are treated as being endogenous variables and which explicitly allows for the role of income inequality through a variety of channels."
The author concludes that "a single equation approach is highly inadequate in order to examine the role of foreign capital, population pressures and income inequality in the growth of developing countries. Our results show that the debate about the role of foreign capital is somewhat exaggerated and that more attention needs to be given to domestic factors like the role of income inequality and investment in human capital."

A review of the demographic transition that has occurred in Asia since the end of World War II is presented. The heterogeneous nature of the region is noted, and the author points out that the fertility transition has proceeded very far in Eastern Asia, has proceeded significantly in parts of Southeastern Asia, and is still in the initial stages in most of Southern Asia. The programs designed to affect fertility that countries in Asia have introduced are described. Consideration is also given to the momentum of population growth, to future population prospects, and to urbanization.
The author concludes that the Asian experience indicates that, firstly "sharp and sustained declines in fertility can occur in poor, rural populations. Secondly, sharply increased income levels do not necessarily result (without considerable time lags, anyway) in fertility declines. Or, more broadly, the demographic transition is not inexorably linked to economic development." The importance of social policies and programs is stressed.

This study is concerned with the relationship between poverty and population growth in India and specifically with whether a reduction in the rate of population growth would assist the alleviation of poverty. The author first reviews the linkages between demographic and economic factors. The bulk of the report is concerned with prospects for future population growth. Mortality and fertility prospects are analyzed separately. The study concludes with a review of the country's family planning program.

"This paper deals with the population growth rate and its policy implications for the economy of Bangladesh....[The author] makes an effort at examining the interaction of population and other development variables in the planning process of Bangladesh." Economic developments and population growth rates are summarized, and experiences with the First Five Year Plan (1973-1978), the Two Year Plan (1978-1980), and the Second Five Year Plan (1980-1985) are discussed. Analyzing the gains from fertility reduction, the author notes that "the cost-benefit ratio of most countries [varies] between 1:10 to 1:30, for Bangladesh it is 1:16." Gains and setbacks in the implementation of family planning programs in Bangladesh are assessed.

The author seeks to "provide a theoretical and empirical analysis of the economic effects of population density growth....The discussion brings together disparate viewpoints from the economic sub-fields of population, development, and microeconomic theory...." The focus is on developing countries.
"The empirical results of the study show: (1) that across countries population density levels explain low levels of economic development to a much higher degree than previously acknowledged; (2) that variation in per capita income levels and growth rates, both across countries and over time, population density levels held constant, is explained by differences in economic structural and institutional characteristics."

The author challenges the assumptions that population pressure is the primary cause of poverty in Zimbabwe and that a family planning program is the remedy. The roots of rural poverty are traced to the country's colonialist and capitalist history and their impact on land tenure and development. The author goes on to question the effectiveness of family planning programs in reducing fertility levels in general. Solutions to the country's problems are to be found, it is contended, in effective socioeconomic developments efforts.

"That the introduction of a means for transferring present to future consumption other than children in a developing country will reduce the rate of population growth is shown to depend crucially on the assumption that parents do not care about the numbers or the welfare of the children they have. When parents do care, the conclusion no longer unambiguously follows because the new means for providing for parents' old age leads to a positive income effect."

52:30711 Robinson, Warren C. Public policy, risk and fertility in Bangladesh: a comment. Bangladesh Development Studies, Vol. 11, No. 3, Sep 1983. 39-58 pp. Dhaka, Bangladesh. In Eng.
The author uses information for Bangladesh to examine the argument that development programs aimed at improving employment and income have beneficial side effects in terms of fertility reduction, as they affect the economic value of children and the environment of economic risk in which reproductive decisions are made. First, three sources of economic risk are considered: unemployment, disability, and old age. Following a discussion of the underlying theory and terminology, a model of a direct relationship between fertility and riskiness is tested using data from the 1981 census and the Bangladesh Fertility Survey.
In critically assessing the arguments postulating the beneficial fertility effects of employment programs, the author concludes that "(1) the level of economic well-being which would affect a fertility reduction is not clear in [the] model and there is no reason for supposing it would be a moderate income; (2) the cost to the government of even raising all presently unemployed, disabled or aged indigent persons to slightly above the poverty level would be several times the annual development budget; (3) the logical and theoretical under-pinnings of the model appear confused and at best dubious; [and] (4) the empirical evidence for such a link between risk and fertility is mostly negative."

The relationship between internal migration and development in Zimbabwe is analyzed. The author suggests that current migration trends can only be understood in the context of the country's colonial past, in which a contrast in levels of development existed between the central areas dominated by European settlement and the peripheral zones of mainly African settlement. Accelerating migration to urban areas following independence and policy changes designed to accelerate the transformation to a more socialist economy are increasing the problems of regional inequality.

K.1.3. Developed Countries

Studies on the relations between population and economic factors as they affect the developed world. Also includes studies on the economic effects of a stationary or declining population, the effects of aging on the economy, retirement, and problems of economic dependency in developed countries.

The author contends that aspects of the world economic crisis and the fertility decline in developed countries have origins in the disequilibrium in the age distribution of the population, caused by World War II and exacerbated by the rigidity of the employment structure. Theories linking the age structures of populations, global equilibrium in supply and demand, and capital accumulation are outlined. The impact of employment conditions on fluctuations in fertility as hypothesized by Easterlin is considered, and a regression model is applied to data for European and North American countries.

The authors examine economic effects of population change, with a particular focus on resource allocation and an aging population. Following an introductory section, "Section 2 offers a review of changes in the Canadian population and associated changes in the labour force, and then a look into the...future. Section 3 provides a general discussion of how changes in the population affect the economy and the adjustment problems that result. Some aspects of intergenerational relations are examined in Section 4 by the use of alternative calculations of past and future 'dependency ratios' within the Canadian population."
An economic-demographic model is elaborated in the next section, "as a vehicle for simulating simultaneously the supply and demand effects of population change at the level of the macro-economy. The effects of future population change on government budgets in Canada are then considered, in Section 6. In Sections 7, 8, and 9, further attention is directed to the three most age-sensitive components of public expenditure, namely pensions, health care, and education, making use again of the economic-demographic simulation model."

The implications of current trends in demographic aging in Australia for economic and social policy are analyzed. "After briefly reviewing the contemporary demographic aging of Australia's population and its likely course over the next two decades, the paper examines the Australian social security system, which differs substantially from others in most developed countries, including the United States, in that it is noncontributory and historically has focused on the alleviation of poverty rather than replacement of earnings."
The author notes that a change has occurred in that elderly people increasingly view the pension as an earnings replacement rather than as a means to alleviate poverty. This change is reflected in modifications in age at retirement, migration, housing, and living arrangments among the elderly. The implications of these changes, particularly for public spending, are assessed.

"The purpose of the present paper is to seek to elucidate the effects of recent and future population development upon the economic welfare of the Danish population as a whole, but especially of the elderly." It is shown that the proportion of the elderly in the total population has increased from 10 percent in 1900 to 20 percent in 1984 and is likely to increase to 21 percent in 2000 and 30 percent in 2025. The consequent increase in the dependency burden on those of working age is examined. The need for greater economic efficiency, higher fertility, and increased labor force participation by the elderly in order for the country to respond to this challenge is noted.

The implications of recent changes in European patterns of family formation and dissolution are reviewed. Such changes include a greater level of self-reliance and a diminishing investment in the family. This in turn may lead to a greater dependence on the welfare state at a time when the public sector of the economy is experiencing difficulties and may be unable to meet the increasing demands placed on it. The author estimates that the increase in the size of the aged population and the decrease in the population of working age will not cause serious problems before the turn of the century. However, a crisis is likely around the year 2000, as a shrinking labor force will have to support a rapidly growing number of elderly.

"This essay explores the economic implications of continuing below-replacement fertility in the developed countries of the West. Effects of low fertility on labor supply, technological change, and investment and consumption are noted, but their economic growth and welfare consequences, it is argued, can for the most part be discounted provided some reasonable degree of institutional adaptability is present."
The author discusses two aspects of the economic consequences of below-replacement fertility. "One is the potential influence of low fertility on income distribution and economic mobility. Social security issues, while properly seen as highly important, are only a subset of an intricate mesh of distributional relationships affected by fertility patterns. The other area is that of international economic relations, given the trend toward demographic inconsequence of the rich countries and the uncertain prospects of their continued technological dominance."

The consequences of the decline in fertility in Western Europe and Northern America are analyzed. The author first describes current demographic trends and suggests that the trend toward population decline is probably irreversible. Consideration is given to determinants of fertility such as industrialization, urbanization, women's economic activity, educational standards, health services, social security, demographic policy, and income. Factors affecting Western fertility are identified as inflation, unemployment, and spiritual impoverishment.
The existence of various schools of thought in Western countries concerning the implications of these trends is noted. These include the fear of the environmental impact of further population growth and the fear of the consequences of population decline. The author concludes that a period of stable population growth will mean a decline in the available labor force, an increase in the age of the labor force, an increase in the number of pensioners, a change in the structure of demand, and other problems for capitalist societies.

The long-term effects of population growth on standards of living in the developed world are explored. The author uses the mathematical theory of economic growth and develops the hypothesis that technological change responds in various ways to variations in population size, density, and growth. The main purpose of the book is to provide a practical guide to policy decisions concerning population matters in large developed countries.
"The author reviews the theory from Petty and Malthus to Kaldor, Arrow, and Phelps, and builds upon that base. He provides a formal supply-demand framework for analysing the quantity of technology produced under different demographic conditions, and surveys the relevant empirical evidence. He analyses a learning-by-doing model which shows that more people imply a higher standard of living. And he develops the basic growth-theoretic model which, with realistic parameters, concludes that faster population growth implies higher income within the next century or two."

This study is concerned with the global relationships among population, food, and natural resources. The author begins with the basic theory proposed by Malthus concerning these relationships. Next, he examines the possibilities for increasing the nutritional status of the world's population and the supply of food and other essentials. The moral implications of some of the economic and scientific advances proposed to resolve such problems are also considered. The solution to the problems posed are seen to lie in a combination of population control, population relocation, education, the selective use of modern technology in land reclamation and food production, and the development of industry in rural areas of the developing world.

Economic Development and Cultural Change, Vol. 34, No. 4, Jul 1986. 677-701 pp. Chicago, Illinois. In Eng.
The authors examine demographic behavior in an environment characterized by periodic high risk, with a particular focus on fertility decline in light of defensive strategies for mitigating risk associated with drought-induced famine. The data are for 387 households in nine rural villages in Karnataka, India, surveyed in June and July 1983. Attention is given to the impact of the two-year drought on life and welfare; chief disaster-avoidance strategies at the household level; demographic and social aspects of the drought; and support systems, including sources of loans.
The instability of rural incomes is seen as a chief concern of the Indian families interviewed, and reducing susceptibility to this risk is shown to be a major determinant of individual and family behavior.
The authors conclude that "demographic behavior has changed only because there are new strategies for reducing risk that were not previously available. The major reason for this new availability is economic change, especially in the form of the growth of nonagricultural employment. The government has played a considerable role in reducing rural risk through extending credit facilities, creating work-for-food programs and assisting with food supplies during famine....The government's major contribution to the new risk-aversion strategies and the related decline in fertility has been the provision of rural schooling and, at least in the short term, of the family-planning program."

"The major climatic effects expected from a doubling of the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide can be avoided only by phasing out the use of fossil fuels over the next century. The cost of developing nonfossil energy sources and the relationship between growth of agricultural output and increasing use of energy-intensive inputs, when considered in relation to the projected growth of world population, indicate that natural resources will ultimately be a constraint on economic growth as well as population growth."
It is noted that "the constraints operating at present, however, are political and cultural rather than physical."

A historical review of the relationship between agricultural change and population growth in China is presented. "This paper will try to discuss four aspects of agricultural change that are related to population growth. They are: (1) expansion of agricultural frontier, (2) changes in cultivation methods and land use, (3) improvements in agricultural technology, and (4) irrigation and water-control. Each of these aspects [is] treated briefly with temporal and spatial perspectives...."
The relevance of the Boserup theory that population pressure leads to agricultural development is considered in the Chinese context. It is found that some evidence supports the theory.

The author constructs a model to explain the differences observed between male and female participation in the labor force. "The explanation (or hypothesis) proposed in this essay rests on some organizational features of marriage markets....I suggest that the difference in the conditions and terms under which men and women participate in the labour force is related to the structure of marriage markets and of the markets in which the commodities produced in marriages can also be purchased--namely, sex, children, security, and so on."
According to the author, "the structure of the marriage market helps to determine the differences between men and women in the volume of schooling acquired, in the type of subjects studied, and in the occupational choices made. These differences, in turn, help to determine the differences in the extent of labour force participation, and in the level and configuration (age profile) of earnings." Policy implications of the model are discussed.

The labor force participation of women in the Flemish region of Belgium is examined using data from a probability sample of 1,321 women born between 1930 and 1955. The focus is on the relationship between job characteristics and the continuity of employment. The results indicate that job quality and interest are major factors affecting the continuation of women's labor force participation, particularly after having a child.
"The effects of the quality of the job are mostly direct and have only a small effect on fertility behaviour. Women with interesting jobs do tend to continue their labour market participation, (almost) irrespective of the number of children they get."

"This paper investigates the impact of the changing regional distribution of the [U.S.] black population on trends in occupational inequality between black and white men aged 25-64 at the national level between 1940 and 1980. Standardization techniques are used to estimate the impact of two forces promoting change in aggregate racial inequality. The first is changes in compositional differences between blacks and whites reflected in shifts in the distribution of blacks and whites across age, education, and region categories. The second is changes in the relative occupational opportunities for blacks reflected in shifts in the occupation distributions for blacks and whites with similar characteristics of age, education, and region of residence."
The findings show that "aggregate inequality between blacks and whites declined at the national level in each decade between 1940 and 1980, but the reasons for the declines differed across the decades. In the 1940s and 1950s, changes in the regional distribution of the black population played the dominant role in generating reductions in inequality at the national level, and changes in the relative opportunity structure for blacks served to increase rather than diminish inequality. In contrast, in the 1960s and 1970s, changes in relative occupational opportunities for blacks played the dominant role in generating reductions in inequality, and changes in the regional distribution of the black population had only a minor impact."

In Eng.
"In this paper, data on population change from the 1971 and 1981 Censuses of Population [of the United Kingdom], and on manufacturing and service employment change from the 1971 and 1981 Censuses of Employment is used to investigate the relationship between population and employment change over the decade at the Local Labour Market Area (LLMA) scale. The relative importance of selected aspects of urban structure, population and labour market characteristics as causal factors in determining population and employment change is assessed using a series of regression models."
The findings indicate "a clear correspondence between population growth and increasing employment in the service sector, and between declining manufacturing employment and population loss. The overall picture emerging of Britain in the 1970s is one of a declining manufacturing 'heartland', contrasting with rapid population and employment growth in the towns and cities located outside the Metropolitan Regions. It is concluded that, in terms of growth prospects, the division between the 'Old' and 'New' Britain appears firmly established, and likely to persist."
