Population Growth and America's Future, An Interim Report Prepared by the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future.
Commission on Population Growth and the American Future, Washington, DC.
As an interim report to the President and the Congress from the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future, this narration discusses the population situation in the United States, and outlines the questions being raised about the probable impact of future growth. It is suggested that it is not simply population growth itself that is the issue, but rather the quality of life that can be influenced so fundamentally by population. Statistics and graphs serve to elaborate the problems of this issue. Chapters are entitled: Population in Perspective, The Prospects for Population Change, Population and the Quality of Life, and Policy Issues. Appended material includes public law 91-213 establishing the Commission, sources of data for the report, and research projects and papers of the Commission. Findings and recommendations are to be presented in the final report scheduled for publication in 1972. (BL)
