Family and Population Control Study: Puerto Rico, 1953-1954 by Kurt W Back( )

8 editions published between 1959 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was conducted in 1953 and 1954 in both urban and rural areas of Puerto Rico. The interviews explored the relationship between husband and wife in questions about family organization and role, degree of intimacy, sexual relations, and satisfaction with the marriage. Further variables probed attitudes toward children: ideal family size, the importance of children in marriage, and parent-child relations. The study also examined the respondents' attitudes toward birth control, knowledge of where to obtain birth control materials, and birth control methods the respondents used. Derived measures include several Guttman scales. Of the total sample, 566 interviews were conducted with wives only, and 322 with husbands and wives together

Population policy and the U.S. Constitution by Larry D Barnett( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A few decades ago a monograph on the legal aspects of population control would have looked mainly at legal prohibitions. The salient legal problems were restriction of the use of birth control and dissemination of information about it. The assumption in such an approach would have been that effective population control is legally affected only by the clearly stated restrictions in the law. In other respects, the law could be assumed to be neutral. Judicial and legislative changes have eliminated practically all restrictions on the means of contraception. This development, how ever, has not freed population from its relation to the law; on the contrary, it has exposed the importance of law as a motivating force for and against population control. Although much applied work in population control is directed toward the distribution of contracep tives, concentration on the means of population control has shown itself to be of doubtful value. From many sides the primary impor tance of motivation has been recognized, along with the need to influence motivation and to analyze the conditions under which motivational change is possible. At this point the role of the law ix X FOREWORD becomes apparent, along with the recognition that law has not been neutral in this issue-that, in fact, it cannot be neutral. Larry Barnett has undertaken a pioneering effort in identifying the areas of law important to changing people's motivations in regard to population control and to a reduction in individual family size
A Physiological effect of cognitive dissonance under stress and deprivation by Mary L Brehm( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An experiment and a partial replication were con ducted to relate the change of motivation due to dissonance reduction and committment to physio logical changes. The experimental technique was based on food deprivation studies which showed that already deprived individuals who committed themselves to further fasting under conditions of low reward decreased their self-estimates of hunger, while the reverse was true for those given high rewards. In the present study the further deprivation was actually executed, and a physiological measure, the concentration of plasma free fatty acids was taken. This was shown to be a reliable measure of autonomic nervous system activity in response to increased energy demands upon the individual, such as length of fasting. The data indicate that a person who has convinced himself that he is not so hungry tends to respond physiologically as if he were not hungry. Physio logical aspects of a more enduring process, such as hunger motivation, are also affected by justi fication in a manner consistent with dissonance theory. (Author)
