Abstract

The paper deals initially with the family decision process and then with the organization of professional activities toward population control. In both cases hypothetical models are developed, information from the field is used to illustrate their significance, and suggestions for further research are offered. The decision model considers the utility of child-bearing for different population groups compared with the subjective valuation these groups give to contraception. Means of measuring these poorly defined values are proposed.
