Reproductive Health in Ohio: The Ohio Survey of Women

The Ohio Survey of Women is an annual population-based survey of reproductive-age adult women in Ohio to understand their pregnancy intentions, current and past contraceptive use, and sources of reproductive health care supplies and services. This study monitors how key reproductive health indicators change over time in a context of fluctuating policies and legislation.

NORC at Chicago carried out the first wave in 2018-2019, and followed participants to complete the second wave in 2019-2020, the third wave in 2020-2021, the fourth wave in 2021-2022. A fifth and final wave with this cohort is to follow.
