This report presents data on the timing of first sexual intercourse in relation to first marriage, and the timing of marital dissolution and remarriage among ever-married women in the United States. The findings in this report are based on preliminary data from the National Survey of Family Growth, Cycle III, a survey conducted periodically on topics related to childbearing, contraceptive practice, and related aspects of maternal and child health. In Cycle III, conducted in 1982, interviews were completed with a probability sample of 7,969 women 15 to 44 years of age in the noninstitutional population of the conterminous United States. Sections are included on: (1) the timing of first sexual intercourse in relation to marriage; (2) dissolution of first marriage; (3) remarriage; and (4) related sources of data. Technical notes discuss the survey design, reliability of estimates, and definitions of terms. Three data tables, one figure, and 11 references are included. (NB)
