Summary

A profile of Jamaica is sketched in this paper. Emphasis is placed on the nature, scope, and accomplishments of population activities in the country. Topics and sub-topics include: location and description of the island; population - size, growth patterns, age structure, rural/urban distribution, ethnic and religious composition, literacy, future trends; population growth and socioeconomic development - relationship of national income, relationship to size of labor force, relationship to social welfare expenditures for education and public health; history of population concerns; population policies - relevant laws; population programs - organization, operations; private efforts in family planning; foreign assistance for family planning activities; and research and evaluation. Summary statements indicate that Jamaica's population is rapidly increasing, the birth rate is high but decreasing, emigration has been reduced, the economy is slowly expanding, there is rapid urbanization but not accompanying industrialization or economic development, high unemployment, and increased expenditures in education, health, and family planning programs. References and a country map are given. (BL)
