Variable Group: Birth desires and intentions

View Variable Group Comparability Notes

This variable group describes the respondent's intended and expected number of additional children, how sure she is of the intended number, when she expects to have her next child, and whether she and her husband want to have additional children. It also includes information on the ideal number of children for the respondent personally as well as for the average American family. Retrospective reports of whether past pregnancies were intended are located in the pregnancy interval file.
