1. Calendars

 P3-001 [] Section: Calendars

Now I'd like to find out a little about your life history. In this section we are especially interested in your work and marriage history. Since this survey is mainly concerned with your child(ren) who will be in our study, we'll concentrate on events which have happened since (his/her/their) birth(s). Later in the interview, we will talk more specifically about events your child(ren)'s (life/lives) such as living arrangements.

 Default Next: P3-001A

 P3-001A [] Section: Calendars

In order to keep all the dates straight, most people find it easier if they have a calendar. I'm going to give you this calendar after I mark a few significant events on it. We find that people are often better at recalling the dates of events if they think of them in relation to important milestones in their lives such as the date of their marriage or the birthdates of their children.

 Default Next: P3-001B Lead-In: P3-001 [Default]

 P3-001B [] Section: Calendars

As you can see, this calendar has months across the top and years down the side. Each month of a particular year is represented by a box. You can fill any box with anything you would like that will help you remember what was happening in your life around that time. Let me start by entering the birth dates of the children who will be in our study.

 P3-036 [] Section: Calendars

INTERVIEWER: HAND CALENDAR AND PENCIL TO RESPONDENT.

Here is the calendar. Feel free to refer to it as much or as little as you want and to put anything on it that you think will be useful. We've noticed that people often find it especially useful when talking about their employment history and that of their spouse, residential moves, and the schooling and living arrangements of their children. As we go along, I will suggest certain dates you may want to put on the calendar but you can use it as often as you see fit.
