The Fog Zone: Data Request
The National Campaign is pleased to announce that data from the National Survey of Reproductive and Contraceptive Knowledge are now publically available. Investigators interested in using these data are encouraged to follow the very brief steps below for access to the complete data set. If you have any questions, or for more information, please contact Kelleen Kaye.
About the Survey
The National Survey of Reproductive and Contraceptive Knowledge was funded by The National Campaign and conducted by the Guttmacher Institute. It was designed to explore understudied factors such as knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about contraception that influence the ability of young adults to use contraception effectively and thus prevent unplanned pregnancy. The survey, which was based on a rigorous probability sample and conducted by telephone in 2009, yielded 1,800 respondents and is nationally representative of unmarried 18- to 29-year-olds with respect to gender, age and race/ethnicity.
Accessing the Data
In order to ensure that the data are not used improperly and to help The National Campaign better understand how these data are being used to advance understanding of the issue of unplanned pregnancy, we ask that you submit two short documents to access the data. Please email a short, half page abstract describing how you intend to use the data along with a signed copy of the data agreement form to Alison Stewart Ng. National Campaign staff will then provide you with a copy of the dataset by email.
