    This collection consists of a repeated panel survey that explored attitudes and behaviors related to the emerging Zika virus in 2016-2017. The respondents consisted of women of child-bearing age, ages 18-45, residing in the United States. Three waves of data collection were conducted between July 25, 2016 and Dec 22, 2017. Demographic variables include questions related to age, race, highest level of education, household income, and political affiliation.

Sampled Universe
Women of child-bearing age, ages 18-45, residing in the United States. Smallest Geographic Unit: Region
A convenience sample of women of child-bearing age was drawn from two sources: a representative survey sample of US residents (n=75 among 355 eligible to join the panel), and online national sampling frame (n=165 women). The representative survey sample consisted of women of child-bearing age who were US residents and who had participated in the baseline survey of a related study about perceptions of the Zika virus, funded by the National Science Foundation (grant number 1638545). This sample was constructed using a single-stage, random-digital-dialing sample of landline telephone households and randomly-generated cell phone numbers. The sample frame included an oversampling of women of child-bearing age (18-45) living in the states of Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. These participants were supplemented with women of child-bearing age recruited from an online national sampling frame coordinated by Qualtrics Panels. Among the 240 sampled women, 226 completed the initial baseline survey.
