Summary

This paper is a progress report on a large-scale five-year longitudinal predictive study of contraceptive success and failure, begun in November, 1973. Subjects were a randomly selected goup of 646 patients at a Planned Parenthood Clinic. An interview and several brief questionnaires were administered to each subject. A sub-group was selected composed of women who had had unwanted pregnancies, and several differences were noted between this group and other groups of women sampled. Findings suggest that while demographic factors such as age, ethnic background and socioeconomic status do contribute some variance to contraceptive failure, the additional influences of attitudes, personality, sexual and contraceptive knowledge, and interpersonal relationships play a very important role.
