1979-1980 U.S. Survey of Unmarried Women Under
18 in Family Planning Clinics
This file contains information on the extent to which the parents of unmarried teenagers under 18 years of age are informed that their daughters are attending a family planning clinic, how parents have been informed, and how notification requirements would affect the behavior of those teenagers whose parents do not know. The data are based on an Alan Guttmacher Institute survey of 1,212 young women seeking prescription-based contraceptive services from 53 family planning clinics. In addition, information on the metropolitan status of the clinic location and the minimum age at which clinics would provide services without parental consent or notification was added to the data base by the investigators.
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.
