Continuous NSFG, 2013-2015:

The 2013-2015 National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) was conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), with the collaboration and funding support of 9 other programs of the US Department of Health and Human Services. The data in these codebooks are based on interviews conducted between September 2013 and September 2015.  NSFG interviewing has continued beyond September 2015, and public use data releases will be released on a regular basis covering fieldwork up to mid-2019, under the current contract between NCHS and the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research. 

Please visit the NSFG website (or click on “NSFG Home” below) to access the NSFG public use data files, User’s Guide, and other documentation created to assist you in conducting analyses with these data.  On the NSFG webpage you will also find reports published by NCHS using the NSFG, as well as bibliographies of other research using these data.
