The objective of this thesis is to explore the relationship between the content of family planning publications and present Chinese culture. The data consisted of materials intended to inform and motivate the general public in the adoption of birth control and were collected in Taiwan, Republic of China. The Chinese culture values were classified by institutions: familial, educational, economic, political, and religious. The content of these materials was analyzed paragraph by paragraph, according to main value theme. The intent was to see which institutional value areas above were invoked to motivate family planning and whether the value areas used to motivate such family planning could be classified as traditional or modem. The final section summarizes the findings and provides suggestions for the future family planning communication strategy. Further study dealing with the originators of communication, the audience, and the media approach is suggested.
