Abstract:

This paper addresses the key elements and changes in population policies and programs, including the strength of program effort, from 1972 to 1982. Using a new scale with thirty items to measure family planning program effort, the presentation is based on an analysis of over 300 questionnaires received from ninety-three countries. Attention is given to measurement problems and change in program effort 1972-82 (including findings by country and regional differences). This study shows that a great deal of family planning program effort exists in a small number of countries; moderate effort occurs in a larger number of countries; and weak or very little effort is found in an even greater number of countries, including many in the Middle East, North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa. Concerning change over time, between 1972 and 1982, there was a modest increase in program effort in more than half of the nearly 100 countries studied and a substantial increase in program effort in more than a third.
