Fertility Modification Thesaurus with Focus on Evaluation of Family Planning Programs.
Speert, Kathryn H.; Wishik, Samuel M.
The Division of Social and Administrative Sciences of the International Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction at Columbia University has compiled this list of terms used in indexing the literature for family planning program evaluation. This thesaurus should prove of direct use to the indexer of documents describing family planning program development and evaluation. The thesaurus has been developed to be compatible with the National Library of Medicine's "Medical Subject Headings" (MeSH) and may be supplemented by their descriptors in biology, chemistry, and clinical medicine. There are four sections to the thesaurus: an alphabetical arrangement of sets of terms, and three appendices--an alphabetical list of descriptors, categories, and hierarchy. (Author/SJ)
