The World at Seven Billion: Global Milestone A Reflection of Individual Needs

From the Guttmacher Institute:

The World at Seven Billion: Global Milestone A Reflection of Individual Needs

Responding directly to individual people’s needs and desires to determine for themselves whether and when to have a child will contribute significantly toward their ability to lead healthier, more productive lives. In turn, these benefits for individuals and families accrue to their communities and to society at large. Ultimately, the impact would be felt at the global level. Meeting the stated desires of all women around the world to space or limit births would result in the world’s population peaking within the next few decades—and then actually starting to decline.

The References at page end are excellent.

The Guttmacher Institute continually produces reports of great importance to women. Another report, “Adding it up,”  first published in 2009 and updated in 2010, has more research findings as well as supporting documentation.  Also an amazing set of references.
