Summary: This database contains maternal and child health information collected by telephone interview from women between the ages of 15 and 44. The majority of these women were interviewed in person in 1998 as part of the NSFG, Cycle IV; however, a number of first-time interviews were conducted for women between the ages of 15 and 17, who had turned 15 in the two and a half years since the 1988 interview. The NSFG contains information on demographics, sexual activity, contraception, family planning, pregnancy, adoption, health history, and AIDS knowledge.
