NATIONAL POPULATION POLICIES 2001
The publication provides a summary overview of population policies and dynamics for each of the United Nations Member and non-member States for which data are available at mid-decade for the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and for 2001.
The core information included in the monitoring of population policies encompasses two basic components:
This publication shows, on a country-by-country basis, the evolution of Government views and policies from 1976 to 2001 with respect to population growth, fertility and family planning, health and mortality, international migration and spatial distribution, within the context of demographic, social and economic change. The material is presented in the form of two-page data sheets: the first page contains population policy data for each country for 1976, 1986, 1996 and 2001, and the second page provides demographic and socio-economic indicators for the corresponding years.
National Population Policies 2001 follows the same format as the 1998 edition of National Population Policies (United Nations Population Division, 1998). Prior to 1998, the data were published as the Global Review and Inventory of Population Policies (GRIPP).
