Socio-economic characteristics like education, occupation and religion may play a role when choosing or refraining from treatment by artificial insemination by donor (AID). From a cohort of 189 AID-patients, the socio-economic characteristics were established from the notes and a questionnaire that was sent to all patients to complete the available data. The response rate to the questionnaire was 83.6% (158 women). Data were compared with population controls that were matched for age and region. AID patients in this study had significantly lower educational and/or occupational levels than matched population controls and were significantly more religious.
