The 2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth: sample design and analysis of a continuous survey.

The 2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth: sample design and analysis of a continuous survey. The National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) collects data on pregnancy, childbearing, men's and women's health, and parenting from a national sample of women and men 15-44 years of age in the United States. This report describes the sample design for the NSFG's new continuous design and the effects of that design on weighting and variance estimation procedures. A working knowledge of this information is important for researchers who wish to use the data. Two data files are being released--the first covering 2.5 years (30 months) of data collection and the second after all data have been collected. This report is being released with the first data file. A later report in this Series will include specific results of the weighting, imputation, and variance estimation. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Vital and health statistics.
