1983-85 Pennsylvania Study of Family Planning Discontinuation:
Clinic and Community File
This is one of several Data Sets concerning family planning clinic discontinuation in Pennsylvania supported by the Office of Population Affairs (see DAAPPP Set Nos. 74, 75, and 76). The clinics involved are from two provider networks: the Maternal Family Health (MFH) and the Family Planning Council (FPC), representing northeastern/ northcentral and southeastern Pennsylvania, respectively. This data set contains observations at the family planning clinic level, including clinic annual reports, a clinic practices survey administered to clinics participating in the study, patient flow analyses, and 1980 census data. This survey was conducted from October 1983 through June 1985, and includes data from 51 clinics.
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.
