Population Control

-In 2009, more than half of all married women in India did not use contraception.

-Less than 40% of people in China are restricted by the one-child policy

-China has 20 percent of the world’s population, but accounts for only 1 percent of global expatriate laborers. In countries like the Philippines and Mexico, about 10 percent of laborers work abroad every year

-India is currently the world’s second largest country, having 17% of the world’s population

-A pilot program was initiated in Satara, India with the motive of reducing population growth by challenging deeply ingrained rural customs.  The campaign educates people to curtail teenage weddings, as well as promote the “honeymoon package” of cash bonuses to encourage newlyweds for the use of contraceptives so that couples wait to start a family.
