Principal Investigator(s): Chow, L.P.; Chen, Hsiao-Chang; Chang, Ming-Cheng
The first of six province-wide surveys of married women in Taiwan was conducted in 1965 to obtain information on women's knowledge of, attitudes toward, and practice of contraception. Information about family relations, fertility, family planning, date and sex of live births, number of pregnancies, and family demographics was gathered from 3,719 women between the ages of 20 and 44. Detailed information was also gathered regarding contraceptive use (past and present), including the side effects of and satisfaction with intrauterine devices (IUDs). Demographic items such as age, education, employment, and family history are included for both husband and wife.
