Overview

The National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) obtains detailed information on factors affecting childbearing, marriage, and parenthood from a national probability sample of women and men 15–44 years of age. This Series 2 report describes the procedures used to select the sample, develop the sampling weights, impute missing data, and estimate sampling errors. This information should be useful for those who intend to do statistical research with NSFG data and for survey methodologists who want to compare their procedures to those used in the NSFG.

This report is a significant departure from previous NSFG Series 2 reports in two ways. First, previous NSFG Series 2 reports have been released 3–4 years after data collection ended, which meant that many data analysts had to do their initial analyses before the Series 2 report was available. This report, in contrast, is being released to coincide with the first release of data from the continuous NSFG, so that NSFG data users can use the information when they are ready to do their initial analyses.
