    Young people who have to write about overpopulation will need to read much about the problem and take advantage of up-to-date literary sources mostly periodicals, articles in newspapers, scientific journalswhich can explain the topic in detail from all side. An engaging survey of the eco-social framework and life course factors affecting health follows. From his analysis he derived a prescription for a population policy that would yield the hoped-for demographic outcome: Of all the causes which tend to generate prudential habits among the lower classes of society, the most essential is unquestionably civil liberty. Invariably, the proponents of such policies claimed some results in terms of birth rates somewhat higher than would have been expected in their absence. There are a variety of reasons explaining this indifference.

    When fertility is high, as it still is in most developing countries, it is a safe prediction that with economic development it will eventually decline, at least to replacement level. Individual preferences in the matter, however, are likely to differ. These included public health programs and projects aimed at improving basic infrastructure for transport and communication. Spontaneous homeostatic mechanisms may not come into play to save the day, or may do so too sluggishly to matter.

    Timely and relevant case studies, practical learning objectives, discussion questions in all chapters, numerous tables and illustrations throughout, chapter-based podcasts, and more make Public Health an innovative and lively platform for understanding the science of population health and the practice of public health. Recently, population on Earth reached 7 billions that would be absolutely normal if allocation was uniform. The Cairo conference formalized this shift: even though the name of the conference for the first time included a reference to development, scant attention was paid to that concept. Some critics have suggested that economic development was more a factor than government policy in reducing China's fertility rate. Although the connection was not highlighted, these are conditions that are likely to help reduce the birth rate through stimulating the demand for smaller family size. To Malthus, the causes of these divergent responses were to be found in the circumstances, social and political, in which people lived—in particular, whether those circumstances hindered or rewarded planning for the future.

Case studies in population policy book

Heeding such a prescription did not imply that the state was to play a passive role in demographic matters. A meta-analysis of what was considered 30 high-quality studies concluded that use of a product halved a risk, when in fact the risk was, if anything, increased. Antiretroviral drugs were given to pregnant women with HIV from onwards.

Similarly, teaching case studies have become increasingly popular in science education. Funding the antiretroviral drug programme has been costly. Under the more generalized category of case study exist several subdivisions, each of which is custom selected for use depending upon the goals of the investigator.

Markets, it was held, could not be relied on to bring that technology to those wishing to practice birth control. The lack of interest in marriage and raising families has confounded government officials, parents, and even some children.

Soils are rich in nitrogen and easy to farm and the gentle relief allows the use of large machines. At the eve of the International Conference on Population and Development, a review, considered highly respectful of the importance of fertility decline for successful development, reached the guarded conclusion that the evidence on the subject "mostly support the view that rapid population growth in poor countries under conditions of high fertility is inimical to many development goals"—with stress on the qualifying words "mostly," "high fertility," "many development goals," and "rapid," and with the last-mentioned term defined as "in excess of 2 percent annually" Cassenp.

Case Studies

Blissful Bachelorhood and the Shrinking Village. Together the volume represents essential reading for students across the social sciences as for policy makers in government and private industry.

Case selection and structure[ edit ] An average, or typical case, is often not the richest in information. Such extension, however, is difficult, given the fiscal constraints of already overcommitted welfare states.

POD Cases : A POD workshop session in Fall provides one example of the use of case studies, together with three case studies developed especially for that workshop.

But traditional demographic regimes resulting from spontaneous social interaction achieved modest growth rates at varying levels of fertility and mortality.

Do you need to divide students into groups or will they discuss as the whole class? It was later shown by Miettinen in that the odds ratio of exposure can be used to directly estimate the incidence rate ratio of exposure without the need for the rare disease assumption.

Sources: A. Population Policy in Response to Below Replacement Fertility During the second half of the twentieth century debates about population policy, and consequent programmatic action, were centered on the issue of rapid population growth in the less developed world.

The generality of the definition lends itself to varying interpretations.

Case Studies in Population and Community Health Management

The new label partly reflected a political-ideological preference, but in part also the fact that some distinctive features of pronatalism—such as differential rewards that favored large families, and non-means-tested or even regressive allocation of family and child benefits—were generally no longer acceptable.Case studies are a popular research method in business area.

Case studies aim to analyze specific issues within the boundaries of a specific environment, situation or organization.

According to its design, case studies in business research can be divided into three categories: explanatory. Sterilization of Puerto Rican Women: A Selected, Partially Annotated Bibliography (Louis de Malave, ) This bibliography is number 80 of the series BIBLIOGRAPHIES IN GENDER AND WOMEN’S STUDIES published by the University of Wisconsin System Office of the Gender and Women’s Studies Librarian, Memorial Library, State Street, Madison, WI ; Presents a diverse range of case studies in which demographic analysis has been undertaken to inform planning and policy in Australia; Includes topics rarely tackled in demography, such as the communication of population projections, and the use of official population statistics in.

Case studies from UK highlight the role of station area development. First, the international cases reinforce the significance of a comprehensive approach in the implementation of TOD. Second, they illustrate the relationship between the various constructs of a TOD, discussed ealier in the book.

This book examines the relationship between population policies and individual reproductive decisions in low-fertility contexts. Using the case study of Singapore, it demonstrates that the effectiveness of population policy is a function of competing notions of citizenship, and the gap between seemingly neutral policy incentives and the perceived and experienced disparate effects.

Overview Aims and Scope. Population and Development Review is essential reading to keep abreast of population studies, the relationships between population and social, economic, and environmental change, and related thinking on public policy.
