Methods to control population


Spread education


Education makes people aware of the welfare of the individual and society. The educated men have a preference to delay marriage and adopt small family norms. Moreover educated women will be conscious about their health condition, and this will avoid frequent pregnancies, this will reduce the birth rate in the society.


Standard of Living


Improved standard of living acts as a restraint to a large family norm. In order to sustain their higher standard of living people prefer to have a small family. When the size of the family increases, it will increase the cost of living for the family. Therefore that will reduce the standard of living.


Employment to Woman
