This study explored and identified factors that affect the degree of implementation of population education in Indonesia. For this purpose, 382 teachers were selected purposively from junior high and high schools in the Province of Yogyakarta Special Region, Indonesia. / The degree of implementation was measured with a nine item index, through which the teachers were requested to report their activities that were related to population education. / Five blocks of variables were hypothesized to be related to the degree of implementation: (1) socio demographic variables including sex, age, education, educational background and teaching experience; (2) job related variables including salary, teaching load, work load and teaching status; (3) school characteristic variables including location, sponsorship and level; (4) teacher perception of school work environment variables; and (5) variables related to population education and Curriculum 75. / Using multiple regression, the unique contribution of each variable to the variance of the degree of implementation was estimated. It was found that teacher's exposure to population education facilities and acceptability of population education were strongly related to the degree of implementation: the first contributed 10.3% ((DELTA)R('2) = 103) increment to the variance explained, while the latter 4.6% ((DELTA)R('2) = .046). / Four other variables were also found to be significantly related to the degree of implementation but their (DELTA)R('2) were relatively low: age contributed .8%, teaching assignment 2.9%, teaching status 1.3% and school level .7%. The unique contributions of all the other variables were found to be insignificant. / Together, the five block of variables explained 55% (R('2) = .55) of the variance of the degree of implementation. / Based on its findings this study suggests some general policy recommendations such as: (1) the teacher training should include a special training in population education; (2) the distribution system of the population education textbooks and other related materials should be improved; and (3) the general public especially the parents should be made more aware of the nature and the goal of population education. / Source: Dissertation Abstracts International, Volume: 42-10, Section: A, page: 4209. / Thesis (Ph.D.)--The Florida State University, 1981.
