30 Years of Experience of the Two-Child Policy in Yicheng, China

Yu Qin, Fei Wang

More and more countries have been adopting population policies to increase birth rates, in order to deal with the growing challenges of aging (United Nations 2013). Following the recent trend, China, the most populous country in the world, ended its 35-year-long one-child policy and started to allow two children for each married couple from January 1, 2016. It is still too early to evaluate the new two-child policy directly. However, something may be learnt from what has happened in Yicheng in the past 30 years. Yicheng is a typical agricultural county in Shanxi province with a population that is over 80% rural (Figure 1). It first adopted the two-child policy in 1985, aiming to observe how fast birth rates would increase if fertility restrictions were ...

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 ...

Proximate Determinants of Fertility Intentions in Tehran, Iran

Amir Erfani, Javad ShojaeiAmir Erfani

Abstract

The success of any pronatalist population policies relies on improving the understanding of immediate determinants of fertility intentions (attitudes to childbearing, perceived norms, and perceived behavioral control) among married young couples. This research is based on the Theory of Planned Behavior and the data from the 2012 Tehran Survey of Fertility Intentions (n= 2267). The results show that more than half of young married adults in Tehran intend to have no more children. The multivariate analysis indicate that individuals who view childbearing as being detrimental to their personal life (e.g., economic living condition, marital relationships and life satisfaction), feel less normative pressure from very close peer groups (parents, friends, and neighbors) to have a/another child, and believe their childbearing decision is not contingent on the presence of economic resources required for childbearing, are more likely to want no (more) children or to be unsure rather than to want a/another child. Other findings show that access to the government incentives to increase fertility has different effects on fertility intentions of socio-economically various subgroups of young married couples, which should be considered by policy makers developing pronatalist population policies of the country.

Age-Structural Transitions: Major Policy Implications for China

Yan HaoYan Hao

Abstract
China is the most populous country in the world. In less than 50 years since 1950, the Chinese population has experienced a process of demographic transition with fertility falling quickly from high to low levels. In between, sizeable bulges and troughs in age structure were left as a result of China’s turbulent course of social and economic development over recent decades. The government-sponsored birth control programmes are believed to have played a special role in pressing down fertility since the mid 1970s. Projections of the age-structural transition show that a “window of opportunity” for China as a whole will arrive in around 2010, when the share of working age population will reach the highest level of 71% and the total dependency ratio will drop to 42%. However, marked differences exist between provinces and between urban and rural areas. Before the dependency ratio starts to pick up again around 2015, China will still have had over 10 years’ time to make full use of this “demographic bonus”. It is a crucial period for China to reach its target of 2020 aiming to quadruple its per capita GDP over that of 2000, and to fulfill its commitment to the Millennium Development Goals. Major policy implications are discussed here relating to labour market and social security programs. In Age-Structural Transitions: Challenges for Development, Edited by Ian Pool, Laura R. WONG and Éric Vilquin, Paris 2006, PP. 289-317.

Preparing for Population Aging in Asia: Strengthening the Infrastructure for Science and Policy

James P. SmithJames P. Smith

Abstract

Throughout most of the developed and developing world, one of the most daunting issues deals with the challenges raised by population aging. Rapid increases in life expectancy, especially at older ages, alongside unprecedented declines in fertility will soon lead throughout North America, Europe, and Asia to never before seen rates of population aging. The “problem” of population aging is easy to state—to provide income and health security at older ages and to do so at affordable budgets. All rapidly aging countries face similar risks, but Asian countries have some advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantages are that compared to Europe and North America, Asian countries are now aging more rapidly at lower incomes with weak non-familial income and health security systems in place. The big advantage is that it is much easier to change public systems in Asia than in Europe and America where the vested interest around the status quo has proven to be a major impediment to any policy adjustment.

Family Planning and Women's Educational Advancement in Tehran, Iran

Amir ErfaniDr. Amir Erfani

Abstract

This study examines the impact of contraceptive use on women’s educational advancement as an indicator of female empowerment, using retrospective data from the 2009 Tehran Fertility Survey. The results show that 15 per cent of married women continued their education after marriage. Also, women using modern contraceptives before a first birth were more likely to experience a 1–2-year increase in education level after marriage, controlling for other factors. Recent cohorts were more likely to continue their education after marriage, especially those who used modern vs. traditional contraceptives. The findings clearly indicate that family planning use after marriage enables women to advance their education by freeing them from reproductive activities.
