The Values and Attitudes of Selected College Students on Some Topics Relevant to Human Population. Monograph No. 31.
Carballo, Jose Luis O.; And Others
Results of a study on attitudes of Filipino college students concerning human population issues are reported. A total of 74 University of the Philippines students, half of whom were enrolled in a natural science course, answered a 15-part questionnaire on dating, friendship, premarital sex, marital expectations, and birth control. Several observations were gleaned from the results of this investigation. Dating is common among Filipino youth. Significant factors in choosing dates, friends, and a spouse are personality, physical appearance, intelligence, and economic status. Filipino youth are conservative in outlook, subscribing to the norms and standards of the larger society. They tend to disapprove of premarital sex, birth control, and zero population growth; and expect to have three-four children. (LP)
