The Fertility and Family Surveys project (FFS) was a multi-national, Europe-centred, comparative project, launched at the very end of its worldwide predecessor, the World Fertility Survey (WFS), to collect and analyse new data on fertility and family. The aim was to place family-building in the wider context of personal biographies and attitudes.

Fertility and Family Surveys (FFS) were conducted in the s in 23 member States of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). The project concluded in with the FFS Flagship Conference.

The micro-data of the surveys is available for research. Micro-data access. WORLD FERTILITY SURVEYThe World Fertility Survey (WFS) was one of the most important international undertakings in demographic data collection and analysis of the twentieth century.

Between and66 countries carried out comparable surveys of human fertility. Forty four of these were developing countries that received substantial financial and technical assistance channeled through.

Population projections depend on censuses, vital statistics and sample surveys, all of which have deficiencies that are most marked in the less developed countries (LDCs).

Long-range projections by international agencies have recently undergone major revisions, while forecasts of the U.S.

population have changed drastically over the past four years. The following chronological overview 1 of cross-national comparative survey projects focuses on sample surveys among individuals or (private) households framing total (adult) national populations.

Studies aiming at subpopulations or target groups are not considered, except selected prominent and particularly relevant studies based on large subpopulations such as working or elderly populations.

Role of Education 8. Role of Women’s Employment 9. The evaluation of recent fertility data has to consider two particular aspects. The first is the general observation (described above) that one anticipates that reports of recent fertility will be understated; the second is the precise framing of the questions used to determine recent births.

The major highlights of the findings are summarized with respect to the quality of the fertility estimates from WFS data, (reported in much greater detail in "Fertility Levels and Trends as Assessed from 20 World Fertility Surveys").

The fertility estimates for those 20 countries are reviewed to assess in each case whether WFS results have. Get this from a library.

The main goal of the Human Fertility Database (HFD) is to provide access to detailed high-quality data on cohort and period fertility to a broad audience of users. We are trying to develop the HFD into an important resource for monitoring, analyzing, comparing, and forecasting fertility as well as for studying causes and consequences of.

The comparisons between these 2 major survey programs have additional implications for the design of fertility and family planning surveys in developing countries, among them, that women should be asked for the dates of at least their last 2 births to ensure accurate estimates of fertility.

surveys in the UNECE region as a follow-up to the World Fertility Surveys. The meeting emphasized the need for policy-oriented research in the fields of family and fertility. In the recommendations it identified the study of determinants of family formation, family planning and fertility.

This report summarizes activities of the World Fertility Survey (WFS), an international population research program to assist interested countries carry out surveys of human fertility behavior.

The document is organized into six major sections. Following an introduction, section two briefly describes participation of countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Resources have been devoted to improve data quality in health and disease programs, but problems persist as countries struggle to maintain capacity for data management, analysis, and use.

Western Fertilizer Applications of Soil Fertility Evaluation and Recommendation • Substitute information for resources. Concerns about the quality of male fertility data have a long history. For instance, Cherlin, Griffith, and McCarthy () found that compared to women, men reported fewer children from prior marriages in both the and Current Population Surveys (CPS).

This finding led the CPS to discontinue its collection of fertility histories from men ().
