Abstract:The National Survey of Family Growth was designed to provide data on fertility, family planning, and related aspects of maternal and child health. Fieldwork for Cycle II was carried out between January and September of 1976. The survey reports background information about the respondent and her husband, such as education, religion, ethnic origin, occupation, and earnings. Complete marital history, birth history and pregnancy history information are recorded. For pregnancies ending after January 1, 1973, a complete history of contraceptive methods used in the interval is available, including the reason the last method was stopped. The wantedness and timing of each pregnancy was ascertained. Finally, there are detailed questions about the woman's ideal family size, desired, intended and expected number of children. A monthly calendar of contraceptive use from January 1, 1973 until the survey is provided; the information was recorded in the form of dates, and transcribed to the calendar by the interviewer.
Universe:Women aged 15-44 who were ever married, or single with children of their own living in the household.
