"Objective: This report presents national estimates of sexual activity, contraceptive use, and births among males and females aged 15-19 in the United States in 2006-2010 from the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG). For selected indicators, data are also presented from the 1988, 1995, and 2002 NSFG, and from the 1988 and 1995 National Survey of Adolescent Males, conducted by the Urban Institute. Methods: Descriptive tables of numbers and percentages are presented and discussed. Data were collected through in-person interviews of the household population of males and females aged 15-44 in the United States, between July 2006 and June 2010. Interviews were conducted with 22,682 men and women, including 4,662 teenagers (2,284 females and 2,378 males). For both the teen subsample and the total sample, the response rate was 77%. Results: In 2006-2010, about 43% of never-married female teenagers (4.4 million), and about 42% of never-married male teenagers (4.5 million) had had sexual intercourse at least once. These levels of sexual experience have not changed significantly from 2002. Seventy-eight percent of females and 85% of males used a method of contraception at first sex according to 2006-2010 data, with the condom remaining the most popular method. Teenagers' contraceptive use has changed little since 2002, with a few exceptions: there was an increase among males in the use of condoms alone and in the use of a condom combined with a partner's hormonal contraceptive; and there was a significant increase in the percentage of female teenagers who used hormonal methods other than a birth-control pill, such as injectables and the contraceptive patch, at first sex. Six percent of female teenagers used a nonpill hormonal method at first sex."--Page 1
Planning and development of the continuous National Survey of Family Growth( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report describes the design and planning work for the transition to continuous interviewing in the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), and the procedures used in fieldwork operations. A subsequent report will describe response rates and other results of the data collection. The substantive content of the continuous NSFG is very similar to the most recent periodic NSFG (conducted in 2002). However, the methodology and management of the continuous survey is a significant departure from the previous periodic survey methodology. So this initial report describes how the survey was planned, what its objectives were, and the overall concepts and procedures for carrying out and managing the survey fieldwork. This report is being released before the public-use data file so that researchers will have the necessary background to understand the data when the data file is released. After each data file is released from this new design, a new report will include specific updates, including response rates and further details of the data collection results. In this way, users of the data will have more of the information they need in a timelier manner. The information in this report should be useful to at least two types of readers. First, researchers who wish to use the NSFG public-use data files may want to know more about how the NSFG was actually conducted, and why, and how its conduct may affect their plans for analyses of the data. Second, the information presented here may also be useful to those interested in survey methodology, and whose surveys might benefit from the approaches used in the continuous NSFG. Recognizing that the report may be read by persons with varying backgrounds, Appendix I defines a number of technical terms used in this report. The report begins with a brief history of the NSFG as a periodic survey conducted six times between 1973 and 2002. The report also explains the limitations of the periodic design that was used during those years, with fieldwork carried out every 6 to 7 years in more than 100 areas all at once. The new continuous design was meant to adapt to a new, and less favorable, environment for in-person household surveys. The central goal of the NSFG design remained the same: interviewing a large, nationally representative sample of men and women 15-44 years of age, in person, in English and Spanish. The continuous design attempts to attain that goal with greater cost-efficiency and greater control over sample size, data quality, and cost through the use of a more efficient sample design, and extensive use of paradata to make real-time management of interviewer effort possible."--Page i
The 2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth : sample design and analysis of a continuous survey( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Objective The National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) collects data on pregnancy, childbearing, men's and women's health, and parenting from a national sample of women and men 15-44 years of age in the United States. This report describes the sample design for the NSFG's new continuous design and the effects of that design on weighting and variance estimation procedures. A working knowledge of this information is important for researchers who wish to use the data. Two data files are being released the first covering 2.5 years (30 months) of data collection and the second after all data have been collected. This report is being released with the first data file. A later report in this Series will include specific results of the weighting, imputation, and variance estimation. Methods The NSFG's new design is based on an independent, national probability sample of women and men 15-44 years of age. Fieldwork was carried out by the University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research (ISR) under a contract with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). In-person, face-to-face interviews were conducted by professional female interviewers using laptop computers. Results Analysis of NSFG data requires the use of sampling weights and estimation of sampling errors that account for the complex sample design and estimation features of the survey. Sampling weights are provided on the data files. The rate of missing data in the survey is generally low. However, missing data were imputed for about 600 key variables (called 'recodes') that are used for most analyses of the survey. Imputation was accomplished using a multiple regression procedure with software called IVEware, available from the University of Michigan website."--Page 1

Extensive information was gathered from respondents about their pregnancies. They were asked about their family planning practices and consultations, prenatal and postnatal care, medical conditions, number of pregnancies and live births, problems experienced in conceiving, complicated pregnancies, sterilization, and medical checkup history. Data are also provided on respondents' desired number of children, birth expectations, and family size preferences.
