Research: Family Demography: Funded Research

National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG)

Sponsor has requested proposal for additional NSFG project costs that will be incurred due to:

1. Computer Security: Increased expenses associated with computer security and computer security documentation due to CDC-OSISO mandates.
2. Questionnaire Modernization: Changes to questions made necessary due to the Affordable Care Act, new guidelines on ?Quality Family Planning Services? released by CDC?s Division of Reproductive Health, and other needs of the large coalition of funding agencies.
3. Incentives: Increased incentive payments (continuation of the experiment) as well as increased labor costs due to a higher rate of resistance.

In addition, per the Request for Cost Proposal, we have included budget information for a potential Option 4.11.1 which relates to changing the age range of the survey from 15-44 years old to 15-49 years old (item number 4).
