The Family Unit. Proceedings of the Annual Population Symposium, (3rd, University of Wisconsin, Green Bay, March, 1972).
Doberenz, Alexander R., Ed.
The proceedings of a two-day conference, part of a continuing series of population symposia, contain the text of the papers presented and a record of the ensuing discussion. The program was designed to examine problems at the level of the family unit, where decisions concerning family size are in fact reached. The legal and religious bases for choice in family limitation, and use of contraceptives by the unmarried, mythological beliefs concerning the American family, differences between sexual and reproductive planning in family and non-family units, and an analysis of the change in family structure and age composition of the population that have resulted from past family planning actions interacting with changes in health care and other social variables are considered in papers presented to the conference. In addition, summary findings and recommendations of the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future are presented in two papers, one presented at the meeting and the other reprinted by permission of the Commission. Notes on speakers and a general reference list are appended. (AL)
