This is the seventh in a series of Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices (KAP) surveys on family planning repeated every five years. The 1997 KAP survey collected data from married couples with women aged 15-49 (this was the first KAP survey to collect data from males). The objectives of this study included: evaluation of the progress and impact of family planning in Hong Kong, the study of contraceptive usage, the study of ineffective contraceptive usage and failure, the study of the changing needs for family planning and health services at different stages of family formation.

Tabulations and a sample questionnaire are available in a report published by The Family Planning Association of Hong Kong, titled Report on the Survey of Family Planning Knowledge, Attitude, and Practice in Hong Kong 1997. Some libraries may be able to procure this report through the interlibrary loan system.
