Data about pregnancy, single parenthood, and attitudes towards birth control have generally been difficult to gain from existing databases alone. Since 1988, a survey has been conducted to obtain this data, and this annotated brief presents results for the most recent administration, conducted in 2010. Results are generally similar to the 2008 results there are about 12,000 single Navy fathers and 6,000 single Navy mothers, Family Care Plan compliance is less than 100 but most do have some plan in place, most Sailors are using birth control, few women have orders to their next duty station when they become pregnant, and point-in-time pregnancy rates are similar to previous results. In addition, trends over 10 or more years show that rates of single parenthood have been reasonably consistent since 1999, family planning attitudes have been somewhat stable since 2001, most groups except enlisted men use birth control at similar rates to previous years, pregnancy rates have been consistent since 1992, rates of pregnancy planning are similar, and a larger percentage of enlisted women are transferred to shore duty than before.
