U.S. Family Planning Clinic Parental Notification
The survey provides information on patterns of parental consent and notification policies for teenagers followed by family planning clinics in 1979-1980. During October 1979 to March 1980, a questionnaire was mailed to 2,540 family planning agencies that administer about 5,000 clinics across the country, yielding a total of 1,796 cases, weighted by type of agency and by caseload. Data include information on age at which services are provided without parental consent or notification, procedures followed to obtain parental consent or to notify parents, and circumstances under which teenagers might be served without consent or notification.
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.
