Abstract

In the first part of this paper, the aims, scope and methods of the Indianapolis Study are briefly reviewed. In the second part the chief findings are discussed and a tabular summary of the results of the twenty-three hypotheses of the study is presented. In the third part the authors describe the chief weaknesses of the study and give their views regarding implications for future research in this field. The substance of this resume was presented at a round-table discussion on exploration of possibilities for a new study of factors affecting size of family, held at the 1952 Annual Conference of the Milbank Memorial Fund in New York City, 19-20 November 1952.
