How China is rolling out the red carpet for couples who have more than one child

Stuart Gietel-BastenStuart Gietel-Basten

A rather remarkable turnaround has occurred in China. For a country famous for having the most comprehensive sets of policies designed to limit births, it is now introducing new policies to support parents who have a second child. In November 2015, China announced it would abandon its one-child policy and switch to a national two-child policy. The change came into force on January 1, 2016, with the immediate rationale being to tackle China’s rapidly ageing (and projected declining) population. Some predicted a huge baby boom. Others – including me – suggested that the reforms were “too little, too late”, and that “simply allowing people to have more children does not mean they will.”

As China ends the one-child policy, what is its legacy?

One Child PolicyStephanie Gordon

China has announced the end to its infamous one-child policy, the restrictive rule that has limited many families to one child, and some to two children for the past 37 years. The changes will allow all couples to have two children. China has a long history of controlling its population. Throughout the 1950s, family planning was encouraged under Mao Zedong to promote economic growth. But only in 1973 did it become a political priority, with the national wan, xi, shao–“late marriage, longer spacing, and fewer children” campaign encouraging two children per couple. In June 1978, a policy of one child per couple was rigorously pursued as the government feared that China would not be able to modernise and support a large population at the same time.

باروری نسلی باید ملاک برنامه‌های جمعیّتی قرار گیرد نه باروری مقطعی

Dr. Mohammad Jalal Abbasi-Shavaziدر گفت‌وگو با دکتر محمّدجلال عبّاسی شوازی

برخی هشدارهای اغراق‌آمیز در زمینه‌ی کاهش نرخ رشد جمعیّت تأسّف‌آور است و از این نشأت می‌گیرد که برخی افراد شناخت درستی از شاخص‌های جمعیّتی ندارند. دکتر محمّدجلال عبّاسی شوازی، استاد جمعیّت‌شناسی دانشگاه تهران و رئیس انجمن جمعیّت‌شناسی ایران، در یک گفتگوی تلویزیونی با بیان این مطلب گفت: دو نوع نگرش نسبت به وضعیّت باروری داریم: «نگرش مقطعی» و «نگرش نسلی». در شرایط فعلی و با توجّه به ساختار سنّی جمعیّت کشور، باروری مقطعی تحت تأثیر وضعیّت اقتصادی اجتماعی حال حاضر کشور قرار دارد. محاسبات انجام شده با روش‌های مختلف نشان داده که میزان باروری کشور در سال 1390 بین 1/8 تا 2/1 در نوسان بوده است. امّا باید توجّه داشت که ملاک برنامه‌ریزی‌ها باید باروری نسلی باشد؛ چرا که باروری مقطعی می‌تواند ...

First Birth Interval and its determinants in Semnan Province by Parametric Survival Model

Dr. Mahsa SaadatiMahsa Saadati; Arezoo Bagheri; Hajjihe Razeghi

Abstract

One of the features of below replacement fertility level is increasing first birth interval which has occurred in recent years in Iran. According to importance of using valid statiatical methods for analyzing first birth interval, in this article parametric survival method were introduced and compared by nonparametric survival methods for data in fertility and marriage attitudes survey in Semnan. Data were contained 390 married women aged 15 – 49 years old collected by stratified sampling method in Semnan, 2013. In univariate survival analysis, non-parametric methods of Kaplan-Meier and log-Rank test were applied and to investigate the effect of predictors simultaniously on this interval, parametric survival modeling, Log-Logistic, were also used. The results showed that the mean of first birth interval was 2.72 years and till 4 years after marriage, more than 90 percent of women delivered their first child. Based on parametric survival model results, rural, employed, and less educated women, compared with urban, unemployed, and higher educated women had shorter first birth interval, respectively.

Demand for Long-acting and Permanent Contraceptive Methods among Kurdish Women in Mahabad, Iran

Dr. Hatam HosseiniHatam Hosseini, Fatemeh Torabi. Balal Bagi

Abstract

It is anticipated that the demand for contraceptives in Iran will increase in the near future as the number of women of reproductive age increases and with women wanting smaller families. The aim of this paper was to study the demand for long-acting and permanent contraceptive methods (LAPCMs), and its determinants, among Kurdish women in Mahabad city, Iran. Data were taken from the Mahabad Fertility Survey (MFS) conducted on a sample of over 700 households in April 2012. The results show that the demand for LAPCMs was 71.35% at the time of survey, although only 27.7% of women were using these methods. Thus, the number of unintended pregnancies is likely to increase in the future if this gap is not reduced. The multivariate analysis showed significant impacts on the dependent variables of the number of children ever born, perceived contraceptive costs and childbearing intentions. Moreover, women at the end of their reproductive lives and those with higher education were more likely to desire LAPCMs. It is concluded that despite a growing use of contraceptive methods in Iran in recent decades, the development of reproductive health services and promotion of the quality of family planning services remains a necessity.

Mapping Age-Structural Transitions: A Comparative Perspective

Ian PoolIan Pool

Abstract

This chapter provides empirical data on regions and case-study countries at different stages of demographic and age-structural transition. It covers both the longer term, out several decades, and the shorter period to 2015 spanned by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. The policy implications of age-structural transitions are discussed and their interrelations with other population transition models identified. In Age-Structural Transitions: Challenges for Development, Edited by Ian Pool, Laura R. WONG and Éric Vilquin, Paris 2006, PP. 3-19.

Age –Structural Transitions and Their Implications: The Case of Indonesia over a Century, 1950-2050

Sri Moertiningsih AdioetomoSri Moertiningsih Adioetomo

Abstract

This paper analyses the causes and impacts of Age-Structural Transitions over a century using empirical data from 1950 to 2000 and population projections from 2000 to 2050 (UN World Population Prospects, medium projection). Three phases of population momentum are observed: The first, one of “waves”, occurred because of disorders in the patterns of birth and death. The second was due to the success of family planning program. The third phase is one of waves that is occurring today and will unfold in future carrying with it incipient indications of long-term aging. A “window of opportunity” has been identified here to occur between 2020-2030, but only for a decade. At that stage the dependency ratio will fall below 45 per 100 at working ages. If the government were able to create enough employment opportunities carrying with them decent income, Indonesia could exploit a demographic bonus, because a large number at working ages with adequate incomes and high levels of saving (because the dependency burden is low) would induce increased investment in quality human resources. In Age-Structural Transitions: Challenges for Development, Edited by Ian Pool, Laura R. WONG and Éric Vilquin, Paris 2006, PP. 129-157.

تازه‌های کتاب

Population Dynamics and Projection Methods: This fourth volume in the series “Understanding Population Trends and Processes” is a celebration of the work of Professor Philip Rees. It contains chapters by contributors who have collaborated with Phil Rees on research or consultancy projects or as postgraduate students. Several chapters demonstrate the technical nature of population projection modelling and simulation methods while others illustrate issues relating to data availability and estimation. This book demonstrates the application of theoretical and modelling methods and addresses key issues relating to contemporary demographic patterns and trends.
