Just the Facts: Family Planning and Fertility in the U.S.
Bulatao, Rodolfo A.
This book provides an overview of family planning and fertility in the United States, from the number of babies women have to the risks they face in having them and the measures they choose to avoid pregnancy, to the dollars that would be saved with fewer unwanted pregnancies. Based on the social science literature through mid-1997, which is cited throughout, the book uses lists and charts to provide nuggets of facts about this area of human behavior. It is appropriate for health educators, family planning practitioners, and others seeking a handy reference guide to basic fertility information. The sections on "Education and Contraception" (p.20), "Education and Ethnicity" (p.68), "Education and Delayed Childbearing" (p. 69), and "College Education and Delay" (p. 70), are of particular interest to educators. (Contains 18 figures and 39 references.) (Author/SLD)
