International Planned Parenthood Federation, London (England).
Population growth trends and family planning activities in Africa, America, Asia, Europe, and Oceania are summarized in this booklet developed by the International Planned Parenthood Federation. Narrative information for each continent gives a resume of population growth trends, reasons for the trends, population problems, policy formation, family planning attitudes, and government interest in matters of population and family planning. Following this, highlights of the family planning situation and basic demographic statistics are provided in table form for each country in the continent. Recorded is the country name, 1969 population estimate, birth and death rate per 1,000 for the most recent census or survey year, population growth rate percent for 1963-1969, and a paragraph on the family planning situation in that country. One hundred sixty-seven countries are reviewed. United Nation sources were used for obtaining population figures. (BL)
