Population and development in the Central American isthmus

The World Conference on Population held in Bucharest in 1974 continues to mark a watershed, because since then population policies have ceased to be the exclusive domain of Departments of Health. Ten years later, in Mexico, the consensus of the international community was ratified on the need to view demographic variables as being determined by socioeconomic and cultural factors, and in turn, as being determinants of the specific socioeconomic situations of each country.
