The eighth survey for women

of the 1973 - 78 cohort



How to complete this survey


This is the eighth survey for the women of the 1973-78 cohort.
As the purpose of the project is to look at changes over time, some of the questions are the same as those in previous surveys.


Please answer every question you can. If you are unsure about how to answer a question, mark the response for the closest answer to how you feel.


Please answer the survey for the time period indicated even if you are pregnant or your circumstances are unusual in some way unless the question states otherwise.
