Exploratory Observations on Family Interaction Patterns and Family Planning in the Filipino Community of Waialua, Hawaii.
Rosario, Florangel Z.
Several social-psychological and cultural variables such as husband-wife interaction patterns, level of aspirations, time-orientation, degree of traditionalism/cosmopolitanism and perceptual outlook--all known to be correlates of family planning acceptance and family size norms--are examined in this study of a Filipino enclave in Waialua, Oahu, Hawaii. The study used unobtrusive and unstructured methods of observation, and suggests hypotheses for future family planning research. Background information on migration and adjustment patterns, vital statistics and other demographic data is included. Many of the characteristics of the "subculture of peasantry" are found to exist in this small plantation community. Appendices include statistical information on the Filipino population of Hawaii as well as excerpts from a follow-up study to the paper presented here. References are also included. (Author)
