dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study was to determine the needs of one marketing segment of clients seen in a contraceptive clinic in the Midwest. The marketing segment targeted for study was women with positive Pap smears. A comparison group of women with negative Pap smears was sampled from the same clinic during the time frame July 1, 1982, to July 1, 1984.Nine research questions were investigated. Responses have been reported relative to the following questions:1. Does the incidence of positive Pap smears depend on the presence of cervical infection a woman may have?2. Does the incidence of positive Pap smears depend on whether or not a woman smokes?3. Does the incidence of positive Pap smears depend on the type of contraceptive (pill or barrier) used by a woman?4. Does the incidence of positive Pap smears depend number of abortions experienced by a woman?5. Does the incidence of positive Pap smears depend on the number of pregnancies experienced by a woman?6. Does the incidence of positive Pap smears depend on whether the woman is white or black?7. Does the incidence of positive Pap age of the woman?8. Does the incidence of positive Pap smears depend on the smears depend on whether the woman is married or not?9. Does the incidence of positive Pap smears depend on the educational status of the woman?Five conclusions were drawn from findings of the study and were confined to the population for the study, clients of the selected clinic:1. Women with positive Pap smears are more likely to have infections than women with negative Pap smears.2. Women who have had abortions are more likely to have positive Pap smears.3. The incidence of positive Pap smears is associated with pregnancies; that is women with one or more pregnancies are more likely to have positive Pap smears.4. A higher proportion of black women have positive Pap smears than white women.5. Women with less education have more positive Pap smears than women with higher levels of education. en_US
