1982 and 1983 Surveys of U.S. Family Planning Agencies
This study was conducted to examine the effects of the federal budget cuts on the availability and delivery of family planning agency services. It includes data on changes that occurred in the provision of family planning services between 1980, the year before the 1981 budget cuts, and 1983. It also includes data on type of funding, type of programs and services available, and fee schedules. This mail survey was sent to a random sample of family planning provider agencies, with a total response of 327 providers. A similar follow-up study was carried out in mid-1983. The data has been weighted to account for nearly two-thirds of all patients served in 1980.
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.
