  • Description:
    According to data from the 1980 National Reporting System for Family Planning Services, an estimated 4,977,000 women visited an organized family planning clinic in the United States at least once during the survey year. This represents ahnost a 15 percent increase over the number of women who received medical services from family planning clinics in the previous year.1 Using data from this survey, the report looks at the contraceptive use patterns and pregnancy status of women during the time they visited an organized family planning clinic in 1980.

    The National Reporting System for Family Planning Services (NRSFPS) is a sample survey conducted the Division of Health Care Statistics of the National Center for Health Statistics. It was begun in 1972 for the purpose of collecting information on visits to clinics for medical family planning services in the United States and its territories. These services are set up under a variety of administrative auspices, which include local health departments, public and private hospitals, and voluntary organizations such as Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc., community groups, and neighborhood health centers. Medical family planning visits to private physicians’ offices are excluded from the survey.
