China's Population Program at the Grassroots Level: Report on a Field Trip, Summer 1972.
The goals of the Caltech Population Program are to increase understanding of the interrelationships between population growth and socioeconomic and cultural patterns throughout the world and to communicate this understanding. This series of occasional papers is one step in the process of communicating research results. The papers deal primarily with problems of population growth and the interaction of population change with such variables as resources, food supply, environment, urbanization, employment, economic development, and social and cultural values. This third paper in the series reports the observations and findings of the author during a trip to China in 1972. The emphasis is on birth control programs in urban areas and in the villages. Political considerations as well as cultural and institutional obstacles are discussed. (LS)
