Abstract:

Using data from the 1980 Malaysian census, this paper reports on a project that tests methodology for measuring the impact of family planning programs on fertility. It also develops an efficiency measure that could be used by program administrators for adjusting program management. In the 1st phase of the project, subnational aggregate data are analyzed using a multivariate areal analysis technic. Based on the regression results an efficiency index was constructed for each sub-unit, the lowest administrative program unit. Sub-units were than ranked in order from the most efficient to the least. A sample from the 2 extreme quartiles was used to analyze differential performance using clinical and other selected data. A multivariate analysis of program and non-program inputs decomposed the relative contribution of socioeconomic development and family planning inputs on fertility. The study concludes that a strong cultural factor affects fertility; social mobility is essential in promoting fertility decline. Family planning efforts directly affect fertility and need to be strengthened. Policies to improve living conditions and educational status will raise contraceptive prevalence. In-depth case studies could help to characterize the least efficient units. Efforts should be made to develop simple statistical estimation technics for multivariate areal analysis to overcome unequal areal sizes, as current regression analysis tends to have biased estimates without appropriate weighting.
