I. Introduct ion
The present paper describes the findings and
experiences obtained by the Urban Population Studies
Center, College of Medicine, Seoul National Universit
y. from a prournm named, "Special Incentive
Program," or more specifically, a program promoting
acceptance of intra uterine contrncept ivc loops thro-ugh
referral agents who are on special incentives.
Data have been collected from 502 women residing
in Chunho Dong, Sun!~'dong Gu, Seoul Citv who
accepted insertion of IUD during the period from
July 1969 to June H;70. The referral agents consist
of midwives, nurses in obstetrical and gynecological
clinics and ph:lrmaceucists(9 agents in total).
II. Basic Characteristics of IUD Acceptors
Women with the following social ane! demographic
charactcrist ics h:1\'P select ivi-lv acrepted IUD Ihrough
this program:
1. Women in the ages 25-34 (67 per cent of all acceptors)
2. Women who belong to lower cducnt ional st rarn,
namely those who have had no formal education
and with only primary school education (totaling
83 per cent of all acceptors)
3. Women having experienced prior to acceptance of
IUD an average 4 pregnancies.
4. Women experiencing 2 live-births (64 per cent)
and 3 Iivebirths.
5. Women with 2 living children (62 per cent), the
average numher of living children being 3. O.
6. Women with an experience of induced abortion
(44 per cent). This percentage is much higher
than women in the reproductive ages residing in
the same area, having the same experience (30 per
cent). The women under the Special Incentive
Program have experienced an average of O. 8
abortions induced.
7. Women having married at an average of 21.7
years. General women in reproductive ages in the
same area have married at an average age of 20. 2.
8. A great majority of the women under this program
(74 per cent) had been married for five years or
longer. The average for duration of marriage was
calculated at 8.9 years,
1II. Family Planning Practices Prior to Acceptance
Only 8 among 502 women accepting IUDs through
this program arc found to have used one or more kinds
of contraceptive methods, prior to the acceptance uf
IUD. Of these. 6 women were using traditional
methods of contraception, while only 2 women had
experience of using IUD before accepting it throug h
the "i ncentive" program.
IV. Other Findings
The cross tabulations containcd in the Korean text
are intended to show the interrelations between such
experiences as marriage, pregnancy and delivery
and abortions spontaneous or induced and age of
women at acceptance of IUD and education, etc. On
account, however, of the limitation in the size of the
- 5 6
base for this study and also of the unavailability of
data for "general" women processed in the same way
to permit cornparisions, much of the information
presented here remains to be compared with pertinent
data, when they are made available.
