The fifth of six province-wide surveys of married women in Taiwan was conducted in 1979 and 1980 to add to the information previously gathered in 1965 (KAP I, ICPSR 6862), 1967 (KAP II, ICPSR 6863), 1970 (KAP III, ICPSR 6864), and 1973 (KAP IV, ICPSR 6865) regarding women's knowledge of, attitudes toward, and practice of contraception. Along with continuing questions about family relations, fertility, family planning, and family demographics, the surveys collected additional information about the marriage process itself, premarital sex, how marriages were arranged, living arrangements prior to marriage, and attitudes and behavior regarding the influence of deceased relatives on the living. Demographic information such as age, education, employment, and family history was collected for both husband and wife.
