Abstract

The author presents an overview of the implications of anticipated world population growth, with a particular focus on the rapid population growth taking place in developing countries. The limitations of population policies in controlling this growth are outlined. The Chinese experience with population control measures is summarized. Among the factors influencing population growth that are discussed are family structure, social security systems, religious beliefs, labor demands, the educational status of women, and economic resources.
