About This Book

This book presents a comprehensive account of the government's initiatives to influence the course of fertility, and hence the rate of population growth, in the island state of Singapore since the 1950s. The book may be viewed as a case study of the public policy of a country in the area of population with regard to fertility and population growth. The fundamental population issue of low below-replacement fertility, coupled with its adverse consequences, is discussed. More specifically, the book is a convenient source of detailed information on all the existing pronatalist incentives, financial or otherwise.
