Integrated Fertility Survey Series

The Integrated Fertility Survey Series (IFSS) “provides access to ten individual national studies of fertility encompassing the Growth of American Families (GAF), National Fertility Surveys (NFS), and National Surveys of Family Growth (NSFG) as well as a single dataset composed of harmonized variables across all ten surveys. Analytic tools make it possible to quickly and easily explore the data and obtain information about changes in behaviors and attitudes across time.

This project is consistent with the continuing mission of the Demographic and Behavioral Sciences Branch (DBSB) of the NICHD with respect to research on fertility, the family, and family planning. The IFSS provides a national resource that enhances knowledge about reproductive health, contraceptive use, pregnancy, and other issues vital to understanding and tracking the health of the population.”
