[No authors listed]



This news brief describes efforts in Shandong Province, China, to maintain a low-fertility population. Low fertility is attributed to strong administrative measures and social constraints and not to fundamental changes in people's views about marriage and childbearing. Shandong Province established standardized management and serial services during the 1991-95 Five-Year Plan. The result was a crude birth rate decline from 18.21/1000 during 1986-90 to 9.82/1000 during 1991-95. The rate of natural increase declined from 11.25% to 3.35%. There is a high rate of planned marriage, deferred marriage, and delayed childbearing. Standardized management includes the establishment and management of family planning service stations, the training of cadres in managing family planning, enforcement of relevant policies, IEC, management of the floating population, contraceptive management, and supervision of family planning programs. Serial services include services that tie reproductive and quality services to people's livelihood and production.
