A3: Population Policies (i + ii)
1 National Fertility Policy in CHINA
1.1 Factfile
1.1.1 pop. of 1.35 Billion
1.1.2 pop. growth rate = 0.5%
1.1.3 BR = 12.1% DR = 7%
1.1.4 IMR = 17% Male = 21% Female = 26%
1.1.5 LE = 73 M + 77F
1.1.6 TFR = 1.55
1.1.7 90% of people live in 10% of land near Beijing
1.2 Need for a fertility policy?
1.2.1 1949 - pop. of 500M - M's living in poverty - LE = 40
1.2.2 Resources do not match size ( 7% of world land - 9Mkm2)
1.2.3 Pop. growth would mean severe poverty and famine
1.2.4 China launched a series of reforms to utilise the resource base more fully and to establish China as a major world power
1.3 1. Great Leap Forward 1958
1.3.1 Mao - "more people, the stronger we are"
1.3.2 Industry could only prosper if the work force was well fed - while agriculture workers needed industry to produce modern tools needed
1.3.3 China was reformed into a number of communes (5000 families) - 1959 things went wrong!
1.3.4 Quickly produced farm machinery fell apart + workers injured
1.3.5 Less working in fields + flooding + drought in '59 - only 170M tons of grain - well below what they needed - starvation occured!
1.3.6 1960 was even worse - only 144M tonnes of grain - almost 30M people died of starvation + diseases relating to starvation
1.4 2. Early Anti-Natalist policies
1.4.1 Early 60's + 70's the gov. sought to reduce fertility
1.4.2 Education + advertising programmes highlighted the advantage of smaller families

1.6.1 Strictly enforced with no regard for individual circumstances
1.6.2 Reported cases of forced abortions and compulsory sterilisation
1.6.3 All aspects of family life were monitored - local ppl. encouraged to pass on info. about anyone disobeying
1.7 5. 1984-1988
1.7.1 Success prompted gov. to relax policy

1.9.2 Reduced fertility with increased affluence
1.9.3 After 30 years of anti-natalist policy, the Chinese have lost the desire for large families
1.10 Evaluation
1.10.1 Positive Brought fertility levels down - 1960 = 6 2000= 1.7 - No longer facing overpopulation Universal age of marriage rose - 1960 = 18 2000 = 22 China now economically well developed - some success attributed to AN policy Policy successful in urban areas were they are more aware of economic benefits of smaller families
1.10.2 Negative Methods show complete disregard for human rights More elderly - LE increases - now problems regarding care for elderly State care for elderly not universal + expensive due to increasing numbers Late abortions and forced sterilisation - serious risks for a womans mental and physical health Rural areas need children to work on farms Culture places greater value on males - reported cases of female infanticide, abandonment and sex selective abortions Gender Imbalance - 120M/100F - Normal 105M/100F Normal family structures changed - next gen. no aunts, uncles and cousins Only child may be over indulged - "little emperors"

2.1.4 1 in 5 Canadian workers and foreign born
2.1.5 Always operated a highly selective migration system.
2.1.6 Policies evolved over time in such a way that the numbers + types of migrants were controlled to meet economic need
2.2 1. Open Door Policy: 1870-1918
2.2.1 Economic need - building of railway deemed necessary to tie Canada into an integrated economy (manufacturing in east and agriculture in west)
2.2.2 No restrictions on numbers - restrictions on source of migrants - Britain, USA and NWEurope
2.2.3 Gov. had control over racial composition

2.7.1 Pop. ageing and fertility levels fallen close to replacement levels - mid 1980's
2.7.2 Gov. viewed migration as a long term demographic necessity not just a short term solution to economic need
2.7.3 Canada was at risk of under population - no longer necessary to have pre-arranged job before entering
