1980 Area-Level Data on the Impact of Family Planning
Program Activity, Assembled by Centers for Disease Control: Whites
and All Races
Since the enactment of the Family Planning Services and Population Research Act in 1970, there have been large increases in the number of women who have received services from family planning clinics. This study investigates the effects of this increase in program enrollment on fertility rates. The data come from the 1980 Census Summary tape as well as the 1970 and 1980 Special Tabulations of the Census, with additional variables supplied from the data files of the Alan Guttmacher Institute. The data set consists of 100 derived and 184 source variables. There are 1,638 cases in the data set. Each case is a single Statistical Analysis Unit (SAU) consisting of one or more counties. The number of counties within an SAU was dependent upon the number of women of a particular age and racial subgroup necessary to provide a stable birth rate. Data Set C6, "1980 Area-Level Data on the Impact of Family Planning Program Activity, Assembled by The Centers for Disease Control: Blacks" is the analogous data set for deriving statistics on Black Americans. Similar state-level information for 1980 is available in Data Set C4, "1980 State Level Data on Adolescent Pregnancy, Assembled by The Alan Guttmacher Institute," and in Data Set C7, "1969-1982 State-Level Data on Adolescent Pregnancy, Assembled by the Institute for Research and Evaluation."
