The researcher wishes to thank WAZAZI, the Parents Association of Tanzania, for assigning him the difficult but rewarding job of conducting this research. He particularly thanks Mr. G. A. S. Mandara, the project manager, for his personal interest in the survey. He appreciates the support the project received from government and Party officials in every region, district, division, ward, and village involved.

He is indebted to his research assistants, all of them WAZAZI regional or district secretaries, for their patience, hard work, and commitment to building better families for the future. They are A. K. Abdallah of Zanzibar, Rahel Amos of Kilimanjaro, M. Chiluma of Mtwara, Lt. F. Kaizelege of Rukwa, E. Kapwela of Mbeya, K. D. Karume of Rukwa, J. N. Kimambo of Arusha, A. Masengwa of Dodoma, C. B. Mathias of Mwanza, S. N. Mollel of Arusha, Helen Mpinga of Singida, J.O. Mujungu of Dodoma, J. J. Mwinuka of Dares Salaam, M. S. Simba of Lindi, and A. M. Wakambi of Lindi.

The researcher is also grateful to the members of the 11 focus groups held in sites scattered across the length and breadth of Tanzania. Their participation in the survey often entailed inconvenience and personal sacrifice. Without them, the project would have been impossible.

Nor could it have been undertaken without the financial and moral support of Dr. A. A. Arkuto and Dr. F. Magari of the United Nations Population Fund in Dar es Salaam.

Special thanks are also owed the secretarial and administrative staff at Zawadi Center and the Morogoro Institute of Adult Education. Mrs. Christine Ponda generously served as cashier and typist throughout the survey period; Ms. Anna Turuka and Claudia Luwago did the final typing.

Finally, the researcher thanks his wife Grace, who helped him design the survey, and his daughters, Anna, Hekamoyo, Zawadi, and Donata, for their quiet encouragement.
