This study examined the content of various sources, including books, movies, scholarly journal articles, and periodicals at an attempt to answer the question of whether China’s one child policy is harming or benefitting the countries children. In conducting the study, the researchers identified several variables to gather frequencies for. In gathering frequencies the researchers emphasized pinpointing, examining, and recording themes within the data. The themes were in turn used as indicators of the benefits or harms the policy is having for children in China. The researchers concluded that the harms outweigh the benefits of the policy. The researchers recommend that changes be made to policy to eliminate some of the unintended consequences brought on by the policy that are negatively impacting the children of China.
