This data collection contains information on maternal and child health, family practices, and attitudes of 9,797 women aged 15-44 living in the coterminous United States who were either currently married, previously married, or never married but had offspring living in the household in 1973. The data have been utilized by the National Center for Health Statistics as the basis for a series of reports on the determinants and consequences of patterns of family formation and fertility in the United States in 1973. Extensive information was gathered from respondents about their pregnancies. They were asked about their family planning practices and consultations, prenatal and postnatal care, medical conditions, number of pregnancies and live births, problems experienced in conceiving, complicated pregnancies, sterilization, and medical checkup history. Data are also provided on respondents' desired number of children, birth expectations, and family size preferences. Other demographic variables provide information on respondents' family history, date of birth, race, ethnicity, religion, education, occupation, employment, and income.
