This collection of essays is concerned with the consequences of population change for present and future social and economic policy towards such questions as employment, education, and health care, as well as the spatial and temporal variations in demand that arise from both demographic and geographical differences. The book argues that there is a need for greater sensitivity about population change in policy-making and service provision and suggests ways of achieving this goal. It shows how population problems are only one part of a complex of factors associated with development; that population policies cannot be focused solely on demographic factors; and effective family planning must persuade individuals through education in the advantages and means of control.
