Growth of American Families Series examines marital fertility and family planning in the United States. Predecessor to the National Fertility Survey Series of 1965, 1970, and 1975, the Growth of American Families surveys were conducted in 1955, and 1960. Women were asked questions about fertility and contraception, including contraception use and pregnancy histories, opinions on childbearing and childrearing, desire for more children, and future childbearing intentions.
