Studies in Family Planning. Volume 2, Number 3.
Worth, George; And Others
This year's annual review of family planning in Korea and Taiwan is represented in three articles. The first, "Korea/Taiwan 1970: Report on the National Family Planning Programs," separately views the program administration, budget, personnel, and evaluation, as well as the various methods employed in controlling the number of births, and fertility declines in Korea and Taiwan. A comparison of relevant information between the two countries and a bibliography conclude the essay. The second article, "Hong Kong: Oral Contraceptive Follow-Up Study," examines the effectiveness of oral contraception in contrast with the IUD method--a study considered necessary since there has been a marked increase in the popularity of oral contraception. The last article, "Korea: Estimating Current Fertility from the 1966 Census," presents a brief description of data, methods, and preliminary findings of this fertility estimation. The need for fertility estimates arises because Korea, unlike the majority of countries, does not have a complete and reliable vital registration system. (ED 045 387 represents a previous issue of "Studies in Family Planning.") (JLB)
