The purpose of this paper is to clarify the effect of population control in China and India. To uncover and understand this issue, this paper makes use of theorists Nancy Cartwright and Jeremy Hardie who specializes in causality theory based in evidence-based policy, and Phyllis Illari and Federica Russo who clarifies the term causality from a philosophical point view. To examine the problem different types of terms from the theory and hypothesis are included, and the chosen method implemented in this paper is the abductive method. To clarify the matter of population control this paper seeks to analyse the causal principles in the population control policies in China and India, and use this analysis as a tool to understand the empirical evidence in connection with our chosen theory. The results implicate that some of the key supportfactors connected to the success of the implementation of Chinas population control policies are absent in India, however the results are not completely one-sided and the possible deviations are presented in the discussion part of the paper.
