Within the sample of women who completed interviews, 252,094 were in the 15 through 49 years age range. Due to the sample size, the survey is also referred to as the One Million Population Fertility Sampling Survey. The in-person interviews took place in 28 provinces and covered urban and rural areas. Taiwan and Tibet were excluded from this survey. The major themes of the in-person interviews included birth history, education, employment, living conditions, ethnicity, and contraceptive methods.
