|Title:||Philippine National Demographic Survey 1968|
|Primary Investigator(s):||Population Institute, University of the Philippines|
|Abstract:||This is the first in a series of national fertility surveys (1968, 1973, 1978, and 1983). The purpose of the first survey was to provide baseline data that could be used to describe fertility levels and difference in the Philippines. The survey is quite extensive. It includes a description of the housing unit (rooms, source of water and light, type of cooking fuel and toilet facilities, and ownership). Basic demographic information includes age, education, language, religion, migration, occupation, and work history. There is a marriage history, pregnancy history and contraceptive history for ever married female respondents. Also included are attitudinal and knowledge questions about contraception and family size. Finally, marital status, education, occupation, class of worker, and residence are measured at three points in time (1960, 1965, and 1968). Furthermore, the education, occupation, and class of worker of the respondent's father at age 40 has also been gathered. 7165 households are included in this survey.|
|Universe:||Sampling unit is the household. Fertility questions were asked of all women 15 years and older who had ever been married.|
