Contraceptive Decision-Making Among Dating Couples (ICPSR 34455) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

The goal of this project was to explore contraceptive and disease prevention choices of couples based on data collected from both partners. The study conducted an in-person survey of approximately 1,200 unmarried, non-cohabiting couples where the female partner is aged 20-35, where neither partner is sterile, and where the couple is not currently pregnant or attempting to conceive. Obtaining separate, parallel reports from both partners provided unique and detailed data on the power relations, perceptions of STD risk, and method-related expectancies, values, preferences, and behaviors of men and women making contraceptive and disease prevention choices within the context of an intimate heterosexual relationship.
