  • Description:
    About 6 percent of the married women and about 9 percent of the widowed, divorced, and separated women were using an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD) as of 1976. The Lippes Loop was the most popular IUD, followed by the Copper 7. The data presented in this report are the first national estimates of the use of intrauterine contraceptive devices, by type of device, from the 1973 and 1976 National Surveys of Family Growth conducted by the NationaI Center for Health Statistics. The data were collected by means of personal interviews with a multistage probability sample of women 15-44 years of age in the household population of the conterminous United States. Women were eligible for inclusion in the sample if they were currently or previously married or were never married but had offspring presently living in the househoId. In this report the data refer only to women who were currently married, widowed, divorced, or separated at the time of interview. ad043acc.pdf
