This publication reviews key aspects of national population policies for the 194 UN member states and non-member states (for which data are available) for the years 1976, 1986, 1996 and 2003; and contains detailed country profile data relating to population size, growth and age structure, fertility and family planning, health and mortality, international migration and spatial distribution. Key findings of the 2003 survey include that for the world's less developed countries the most significant population issues relate to high mortality (particularly infant, child and maternal mortality rates and HIV/AIDS), followed by high rates of fertility and population growth and large working-age populations. In contrast, for developed countries the most significant demographic issues relate to low fertility (particularly population ageing and a falling working-age population).
