"The 1965 National Fertility Study was an attempt to measure four fertility variables: 1) the number of children a woman intends to have; 2) the number she expects to have; 3) the number she would really desire; and 4) the number she considers ideal for the average American family." "The 1965 NFS is compatible with the earlier 1955 and 1960 Growth of American Families survey and the basic measures reported in these GAF studies have been replicated in the 1965 survey. One of the principa l departures of the 1965 NFS from its predecessors is that the latter focused in part on the task of devising a variable for forecasting fertility-expected parity as a way to complete the fertility histories of the younger and therefore incomplete cohorts of United State women. Factual questions include information on the following: age; education; income; occupation and employment history; residence history; religious preference and attendance; and parent's religion, education and nationality."
