Introductory statement: methodologic issues in population planning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The methodologies used in policy formation, program planning and implementation in the field of population are limited. It is, therefore, difficult to critically analyze the issues in population policy. The inability to develop adequate methodologies is probably due to the inability to rationally define the problem. Nevertheless, until nations consider population planning as a means of controlling the size and distribution of the population, (rather than as a means of accomodating it) methodologies will be of limited use.
