1975 National Survey of Physicians' Attitudes Toward
The survey used a national probability sampling frame and includes 1,452 personal interviews with physicians and osteopaths stratified by four physician specialty types: obstetrician-gynecologists, psychiatrists, generalists, and physicians in other specialties. The probability of PSU selection was also taken into account. The questionnaire included queries on the justifications for abortion, opinions on effects of the 1973 Supreme Court abortion decision, practices regarding abortion in 1972 and currently, perceived influences on attitudes, and various details of background, training, and demographic variables.
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.
