Policymakers will be most likely to achieve their goals for reducing national fertility levels if they can: 1) Identify the specific factors, both those included in development programs and those related to individual behavior, that have the greatest effect upon fertility; 2) Devise policies and programs that successfully influence these factors in desired ways. Family planning programs are the most cost-effective intervention.
