The first of the two articles reviews the types of population education currently available, indicating that sex education, education for family living, population awareness, and education for basic value orientations are not mutually exclusive. The objectives and evaluation of such courses are not necessarily identical in different parts of the world, and basic research on cultural and psychological aspects of different societies is a necessary step before population education curricula can be prepared and the target groups identified. The second article contains excerpts from a research paper and discusses methods of promoting patient registration at family planning clinics in the United States, the characteristics of successful facilities, including location and staffing, and measures of clinic efficiency. The eligibility for service and fee policies are discussed and the effect of staff attitude, clinic hours, and waiting time on acceptance of the clinic is mentioned. (AL)
