Data on population distribution by age and sex, urban growth, social and economic conditions, life expectancy, mortality, health and disease, nutrition, medical care, education, youth participation in the labor force of selected countries and other demographic variables are included. The less developed and more developed countries are frequently compared. Factual textual material accompanies many charts. Most of the data given are drawn from sources compiled in the second half of the 1970s. An outlook for the future in terms of population growth, the basic needs of children and short term goals for meeting the needs of impoverished people is indicated. (Rh)

Options; [a study guide to population and the American future by Population Reference Bureau( Book )

7 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study guide on population, based on the official report of the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future appointed in March 1970, is designed for students but is also pertinent for discussion groups and seminars in the adult community. Major objectives emphasize learning how population actions change the size and character of population, and evaluating the impact of population changes, and personal and public decisions on population trends. Although there is sufficient material for an entire course the guide is arranged to allow for short study units. Background material for teaching is included but the major thrust is student inquiry, with personal involvement and recognition of one's role as a "population actor" deemed critical factors for effective learning about population. Instructors may choose from the activities section, which comprises the bulk of the guide, those appropriate for their junior high, senior high or adult participants. Goals spelled out by specific objectives are keyed to the activities to facilitate their efficient use. A bibliography and a Population Data Sheet conclude the guide. (Jh)
