Research on the Population of China: Proceedings of a Workshop (Washington, D.C., October 28, 1980).
Lapham, Robert J., Ed.; Bulatao, Rodolfo, A., Ed.
The workshop provided an opportunity for U.S. technical specialists and policy makers to review the growing body of information on the Chinese population and to discuss ways to promote collaborative population research involving both Chinese and American experts. Demographic research is the focus of the papers in part 1. Current prospects for demographic research, as well as needs and possibilities in the field, are discussed. Estimates of completeness of death recordings in the Chinese sample survey of 1972-75 and Chinese population trends and policy are examined. Biomedical research is the topic of part 2. Also, research needs and the 1978 perinatal study in Tientsin are discussed. Papers in parts 3 and 4 treat research on family planning and marriage and family. Collaborative U.S. and Chinese research is the focus of the papers in the concluding section. Appendices contain guidelines for cooperation in the science and technology of medicine and public health, a descriptive outline of collaborative population projects, and a list of workshop participants.
