    The effectiveness of population policies adopted in different countries since the 1990s to include birth control programmes and other strategies adopted.

    What does this on the specification refer to? I have nothing in my notes nor revision guides. Can anyone explain this to me?

    I'm not sure about 1990's, but China's one child policy of the 1980's is what I studied for AQA Geography.

    I think this is the question that came up on the human paper this year!

    um, i wrote about china's one child policy but just make sure that you don't mention any info that's from before 1990, i remember people thinking that it was a bit of a weird twist as most of the case study info is from before.

    I took GCSE geography last year and if my your school is using the same case studies as we did then I think the only two you can possibly use is China's one child policy or Kerala's family planning policy, Just make sure you talk about the policy's from the 90's onward. However the question does not directly say you need to talk about birth control policy's only, so that opens up to use ageing population case studies like Japan and how have they used policy to change the population etc. You could even talk about how France has implemented policy to change the population. So basically I would talk about them four countries. How many marks is the question?

    I'd say that it's still a perfectly good thing to use. Instead of evaluating it by saying it might cause a population deficit with not enough working age people to support dependents, you could say that they've attempted to correct it by increasing it to two.

    Also, for 'other strategies', correct me if I'm wrong but you're looking for the case study where they spread residents over Indonesia to reduce population density.
