Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Download PDF versionFreedman, Ronald. "Observing Taiwan's Demographic Transition: A Memoir." PSC Research Report No. 98-426. 10 1998.

The author had the opportunity to observe the course of the rapid demographic transition in Taiwan from 1961 to the present, with its fertility decline from 5.8 to 1.7. An initial large-scale experiment in Taiwan's largest city, Taichung, was intended to demonstrate that family planning could be offered successfully to its population and, at the same time, to test best ways of doing this.

Dataset(s): The Taichung Experiment, Taiwan, 1961-1963. Taiwan Surveys of Fertility, Family Size Preferences, and Family Planning Practice, 1965, 1967, 1970, 1971, 1973, 1980, 1985, 1991. The Taiwan Demographic Fact Book, 1965-1995, annually.
