The National Survey of Family Growth is a periodic survey conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics, and designed to produce national estimates of statistics on fertility, family planning, and aspects of maternal and child health that are closely related to childbearing. This report presents statistics based on data collected in the 1982 National Survey of Family Growth on the use of services for family planning and infertility by women between the ages of 15 and 44 years of age who had ever had sexual intercourse. Data is provided on the following aspects of family planning and infertility services: (1) the percent of persons who had ever made a family planning visit, age at first visit, and services received at first visit; (2) visits in the last 3 years, by type of service provider, kinds of services received, and source of payment; and (3) infertility services, including type of services received and most recent source. The percent who used services is shown by race, Hispanic origin, age, and selected socioeconomic characteristics. Users of services are shown by the source of the service and socioeconomic characteristics. Twenty-one detailed data tables are included. Technical notes, definitions of terms, and Section E of the Under 25 questionnaire are appended. (NB)
