Declining fertility levels, in some cases to below replacement level, the question of mortality differentials, the aging of the population, an increasing concern about the volume of foreign-born population and somewhat inappropriate spatial distribution are some of the most common problems being expressed by the developed countries of the world in the sphere of population policy. While the degree of alarm varies from country to country, these concerns may be seen as a common thread running through the statements of Government officials from developed countries. Sometimes they are explicit, but more often they are implicit. The present report entitled, "Population Policy Briefs: Current Situation in Developed Countries, 1980" is an attempt to present on a systematic basis a brief summary of Governments' current perceptions and policies in relation to population growth, fertility, international migration and spatial distribution. The issue of mortality and health policy and its implications for population as well as the question of tax allowances in relation to fertility policies is expected to be analysed in a future issue of the Population Policy Briefs.
