Fertility Policy and Implementation in China, 1986-88

Abstract

At present China maintains its ambitious goal of not exceeding a population of around 1.2 billion by the year 2000. Given the huge number of women entering the peak childbearing ages during the next decade, the attainment of this target requires renewed efforts in family planning. After a period of relaxation in the family planning program, since 1986 the national and provincial governments have been tightening up on family planning in order to achieve China's goal. Despite changes in leadership and degree of heavyhandedness in enforcement of the one-child policy between the early 1980s and 1988, throughout this period the basic elements of China's family planning program had not changed. These elements include: a stated official policy on voluntarism, mandatory family planning and contraceptive methods, national limits on the number of children per couple, and the use of one-child pledges and family planning contracts in policy implementation.
