MetadataShow full item record
The objective of the paper is to gauge the effects of public opinion regarding population policies which aim to reduce population growth rates. It sets out to determine the influence which public attitudes have on the success or failure of policy. The method used is a comparison of the policies of four countries; India, Mexico, China and the United States. The paper also takes a brief look at past and present European population dynamics to serve as a contrast to today's developing countries. The comparative portion of the paper is preceded by an historical background-both of population growth and policy emergence-in order to provide a complete picture of present policy and its relationship to public opinion.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
