Population Research. Inventory of Population Research Supported by Federal Agencies, Fiscal Year 1971.
Corfman, Philip A.
The Interagency Committee on Population Research has prepared this inventory in response to its functional goals of facilitating the exchange of information and coordinating the efforts of various Federal agencies concerned with research related to human population problems. Scope of the inventory encompasses a broad spectrum of research in the biological, medical, social, and behavioral sciences. The information it provides should prove valuable to those working in the population field by identifying the types of research supported by Federal agencies and by assisting in the identification of areas needing expanded efforts to help solve the population problems. Over 700 projects are classified by research area and grouped under the following major headings: (1) Reproductive Processes and Contraceptive Development, (2) Fertility Regulation Techniques Presently in Use, (3) Animal Behavior and Ecology, (4) Social and Behavioral Sciences, and (5) Population Centers and Multidisciplinary Biomedical-Behavioral Programs. Citations provide: title of project, principal investigator, grantee agency and subdivision, funding mechanism, FY 1971 funds, project period, and total project funds. An alphabetical index of investigators, keyed to projects described, is appended. This updated report for FY 1971 is the third in a series of such inventories. (BL)
