National Fertility Study: Married Women Interviewed
in 1970 and 1975
This study is a special subset of the National Fertility Studies conducted in 1970 and 1975 (documented as DAAPPP Data Set Nos. 50-51 and 52, respectively). Included in this sample are the full set of variables for the 2,361 married women interviewed in 1970 and reinterviewed in 1975. The present data set enables an examination of changes in contraceptive efficacy, fecundability, work history, family planning intentions, sterilization, and abortion, as well as related opinions and attitudes. Additional background information is also provided on respondent and spouse (age, family background, education, religion and religiosity, ethnicity, occupation and income).
Note for users of DAAPPP Data Sets #01-B1
DAAPPP data sets 01 through B1 are comprised of a User's Guide, SPSS syntax files (*.SPS or *.SPX) and raw data files only. Most of these datasets contain SPSS syntax files that use Job Control Language (JCL) from 1980s versions of SPSS-X. Because the syntax is old, the syntax files require editing to conform to the current syntax standards used by SPSS/Windows or SPSS/Unix. If you require technical assistance in using or editing these syntax files, please contact Sociometrics' Data Support Group at 800.846.3475 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
