1983 National Survey of Unmarried Women, Aged 20-29
Investigators: Koray Tanfer

The 1983 National Survey of Unmarried Women queried women ages 20 to 29 on various topics. The aim of the survey was to examine these women's sexual, contraceptive, and fertility behaviors. Special attention was given to: (1) the events leading up to pregnancy and childbirth within a situational and interpersonal context; (2) knowledge and perceptions of contraceptive methods, their availability, practicality, safety, effectiveness, and accessibility; (3) patterns and trends in the use and nonuse of contraception and factors affecting method choice; (4) abortion attitudes and behavior; and (5) wantedness and disposition of live births. This Data Set includes 2,843 variables; respondents were 1,149 household women and 165 college women, for a total of 1,314 respondents. A detailed "Sampling Report on the Survey of Unmarried Young Women" is excerpted in the User's Guide, and available in full as a supplementary document.
