Dirasat Sukkaniyah. Apr-Jun 1985;12(73):3-26, 25-8.


PIP: Methodological and theoretical aspects of measuring the demographic impact of the Egyptian Population and Development Programme are examined. The authors first consider the impact of the program on contraceptive prevalence and conclude that it has had reasonable success in this area. They then expand the analysis, introducing a variety of socioeconomic factors in order to determine their impact. The need to develop more refined measures to evaluate program impact at the community level is emphasized. (SUMMARY IN ARA)
