Effects of Organized Family Planning Programs on
U.S. Adolescent Fertility, 1970-1975
This file contains data used to estimate the effects of family planning programs in the U.S. on adolescent fertility. The study sample consists of 3,105 counties in the U.S. identified from Alan Guttmacher Institute files. The original study divided the counties into three kinds of statistical analysis units for analysis. The DAAPPP file focuses on county-level data only; however, the statistical analysis units used can be reconstructed using codes in the DAAPPP file. The file contains the following information for the years 1970 and 1975: (1) county-level tabulations of U.S. women by age, race, marital status, and poverty status based on the 1970 Census; (2) data on the number of organized family planning provider sites in each county and the number of teenage patients by age and race; (3) abortion accessibility measures; (4) private medical contraceptive sources; (5) socioeconomic and demographic measures; and (5) birth rate figures.
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.
