I'm looking for the fertility supplement of 1979 to 1988. Is there any reason why they are no longer available?


I would like to confirm that the fertility supplement was not collected for never married/ single women in these periods. Is there any additional source I can access these data?



The fertility supplement was fielded in 1980-1988; however these samples are not currently available on IPUMS-CPS. The IPUMS-CPS team is working to get these samples released in 2016. In the meantime, you can access the fertility supplements on the NBER website.

I hope this helps!
