Reports on Population/Family Planning. Population and Family Planning Programs: A Factbook.
This third annual "Factbook," containing neither text nor charts, is a supplement rather than an entirely new edition. It consists of 17 tables with new information and a new map of the world showing current government positions of family planning programs and policies. As in earlier editions, the tables are the core of this report. They contain data organized in three major sections: 1) a worldwide overview of information on population, economic development, and governmental positions on family planning for broad geographic regions; 2) demographic, social, and economic characteristics for individual countries in both the developing and developed world; and, 3) national family planning policy and program data, including such information as personnel and funds allocated to services, acceptors, and estimated current users of such services. Data presented in the tables are taken or computed from published and unpublished sources, as specified. In some cases data are estimates based on incomplete information. International comparisons are to be viewed with caution because of differences among the countries in concept, definition, and operation. (Author/JLB)
