2002 National Survey Of Family Growth

2002 National Survey Of Family Growth - Cycle VI of the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) was conducted in 2002 by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), with the participation and funding support of nine other programs of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. Consistent with previous cycles, Cycle VI contains interviews conducted with females 15-44 years of age. A female pregnancy file was also compiled, consisting of one record per pregnancy for all female respondents having experienced pregnancy. New to Cycle 6 is the introduction of the interviewing of males aged 15-44. The male questionnaire averaged about 60 minutes in length, while the female interview averaged about 80 minutes. For most of the survey a Computer-Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) technique was used in which the interviewer entered the respondents' answers into a laptop computer. For the last section of the interview, the survey participants entered their own answers into the computer using a technique called Audio Computer-Assisted Self-Interviewing (Audio CASI). The interviews included questions on schooling, family background, marriage and divorce, having and raising children (including contraceptive use, pregnancy outcomes and "wantedness" of pregnancies, infertility and infertility services, family planning services, sterilizing operations, adoption, and medical care), sex education, first sexual intercourse, sexually transmitted diseases, AIDS, religion, race/ethnicity, employment/occupation, income, and insurance.
