|Title:||Detroit Area Study, 1962 [United States]: Family Growth in Detroit|
|Primary Investigator(s):||Freedman, Ronald, and David Goldberg.|
|Abstract:||The main focus of this data collection was women's attitudes toward family and family size. The women interviewed for this study answered questions on past pregnancies and described their attitudes toward large and small families, their reasons for having children, and the nature of their own patterns of family growth. Extensive family background information was also collected, including data on occupation of respondent and husband, age of respondent and husband, education of respondent and husband and their parents, family income, types of savings, and housing information.|
