A Researcher's Guide to Social-Psychological-Communication Variables in Family Planning Research.
Rosario, Florangel Z.
The 274 citations presented were selected from family planning research studies completed between 1946 and 1972 using social, psychological, and communication variables. The entries are numbered consecutively, and methodological summaries following each reference cover (1) researcher and/or sponsoring agency, (2) independent variables, (3) research locale, (4) research design, (5) data-gathering methods, (6) type of respondent, and (7) type of sampling. Most of the references cited are empirical studies in family planning communication, and are social-psychological in orientation, dealing with perception, motivation, communication, knowledge, attitudes, and practice variables. A few are comparative studies or attempts to synthesize existing material or to suggest possible application to existing action programs. Some are unpublished studies which have been described in articles. Guides at the end of the paper show the distribution of studies according to research locale and independent variable, with numbers referring to the bibliographic reference. (Author/CMV)
