Abstract: The National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) is a periodic survey initiated to provide current information on fertility and infertility, family planning, childbearing, contraceptive practice, and other aspects of maternal and child health, and to gauge the effects of these processes on population growth. The NSFG Cycle VI interviews have been divided into three files. The Female Respondent File (part I) contains one record for each of the 7,643 women in the survey and includes most of the information from their interviews. Data is gathered on: demographic information, pregnancy history and adoption-related information, contraceptive use, birth expectations, and marital and cohabitation history.The Female Pregnancy (Interval) file (part II) contains one record for each of 13,593 pregnancies (both completed pregnancies and current pregnancies), and contains information about the characteristics of each pregnancy and method use and wantedness before each pregnancy. The Male Respondent file (part III), contains one record for each of the 4,928 men interviewed, and includes most of the information from their interviews. Data on the male respondents includes: demographic information and information on wives, cohabiting partners, recent sexual partners, and contraceptive use, as well as data on infertility, biological and adopted children, birth expectations, and activities with his children.
