This research brief describes work documented in How Americans View World Population Issues: A Survey of Public Opinion (MR-1114-DLPF/WFHF/RF) and Beyond the Numbers: How Americans View Global Population Issues (RB-5037).
Excerpt: How closely do public attitudes mirror these impressions? To address this question, RAND's Population Matters program asked a nationally representative sample of 1,500 Americans about their views on family planning and on abortion. The questions were part of a broader survey of public attitudes about global population trends and issues.
