  • Description:
    About 13,300,000 currently married women received professional family planning services during the 3 years before the 1976 National Sur­ ey of Family Growth, an increase of about 1 mfllion, or 8 percent, above the number who made a family planning visit in the 3 years before a similar survey conducted in 1973.

    Among fecund, or nonsterile, couples about 57.9 percent made a family planning visit in the 3-year period prior to the 1976 survey as compared with 51.2 percent in the 3-year period prior to 1973.

    Among wives who reported making a family planning visit in the 3 years before the 1976 survey, a large majority (W percent) reported their most recent visit was with their own physician, while a minority (16 percent) indicated the last visit was with an organized medical service. These figures are not significantly dif­ ferent from the comparable figures for 1973.

    The statistics on use of family planning services are from the National Survey of Family Growth, Cycles I and II, conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics. Data were collected through personal interviews with a

    multistage, probability sample of women in the household population of the conterminous United States. Women 15-44 years of age, inclusive, who were currently married or previously married or who were never married but had offspring presently living in the household were eligible for inclusion in the sample.
