Beyond six billion : forecasting the world's population by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beyond Six Billion asks what such projections really say, why they say it, whether they can be trusted, and whether they can be improved. The book includes analysis of how well past United Nations and World Bank projections have panned out, what errors have occurred, and why they have happened." "Focusing on fertility as one key to accurate projections, the committee examines the transition from high, constant fertility to low fertility and discusses whether developing countries will eventually attain the very low levels of births now observed in the industrialized world. Other keys to accurate projections, predictions of lengthening life span and of the impact of international migration on specific countries, are also explored in detail." "How good are our methods of population forecasting? How can we cope with the inevitable uncertainty? What population trends can we anticipate? Beyond Six Billion illuminates not only the forces that shape population growth but also the accuracy of the methods we use to quantify these forces and the uncertainty surrounding projections." "This book will be important to policy makers, demographers, social scientists, population activists, journalists, and individuals interested in this important and controversial discussion."--Jacket

The value of family planning programs in developing countries by Rodolfo A Bulatao( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Family planning programs have been highly successful over the past 30 years in providing women in developing countries with desired access to contraceptive services and helping to reduce fertility rates. Notwithstanding this success, there is still an urgent need for these programs. The world's population is increasing, with annual population growth still approximately 80 million people. Nearly all of this growth is occurring in developing nations, where fertility rates remain relatively high. This high fertility runs counter to the preferences expressed by millions of women, who actually want to have smaller families. Family planning programs are also desirable because they are associated with a range of other benefits, most notably improvements in women's and children's health. Host countries provide about 60 to 75 percent of funding for family planning. However, funding and technical assistance from donor nations, especially the United States, have been crucial to the past success of family planning programs and are equally important for strengthening and expanding program efforts to meet future challenges

Offspring : human fertility behavior in biodemographic perspective by Workshop on the Biodemography of Fertility and Family Behavior( Book )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demographic interest in fertility has been driven less by the biological imperative to have children for the survival of a group. Its interest has been driven more on the threat of rapid population growth and the issue, for couples and women, of unplanned fertility. The confluence of the largely successful worldwide effort to tame high fertility and the emergence of genetic approaches to understanding human behavior provide a stimulus to review the focus of demographic work on fertility and to enlarge its concerns with biological and evolutionary questions. The NRC took on this task with the understanding that researchers in the area were pursuing a variety of independent approaches that required a common unifying focus. Some work in the area, such as studies of twins and adoptees, generated controversy despite being pursued aggressively. "Offspring is the result of a study to examine these issues and seeks to encourage more balance and depth in the treatment of fertility in population studies
