ESTIMATE TABLES

All Estimate Tables

This file includes estimates for the 18 FP2020 Core Indicators, estimates for total users of modern contraception, modern contraceptive prevalence rate for married women and disaggregated estimates for relevant indicators. The file contains additional information on data sources used for modeling in the Family Planning Estimation Tool (FPET). Estimates for Core Indicators 1-8 include regional totals. Indicators are reported for 2012.5, 2013.5, 2014.5, 2015.5, 2016.5, and 2017.5 where relevant. For indicators that depend on a survey, the estimates come from the most recent survey. Note that only countries with a 2012 or later survey are included in this reporting.

3 UNMET NEED

Married or in-union women

The percentage of fecund women of reproductive age who want no more children or to postpone having the next child, but are not using a contraceptive method, plus women who are currently using a traditional method of family planning. Women using a traditional method are assumed to have an unmet need for modern contraception.

4 DEMAND SATISFIED

Married or in-union women

The percentage of women (or their partners) who desire either to have no additional children or to postpone the next child and who are currently using a modern contraceptive method. Women using a traditional method are assumed to have an unmet need for modern contraception.

5 UNINTENDED PREGNANCIES

The number of pregnancies that occurred at a time when women (and their partners) either did not want additional children or wanted to delay the next birth. Usually measured with regard to last or recent pregnancies, including current pregnancies.

6 UNINTENDED PREGNANCIES AVERTED

The number of unintended pregnancies that did not occur during a specified reference period as a result of the protection provided by modern contraceptive use during the reference period.

7 UNSAFE ABORTIONS AVERTED

The number of unsafe abortions that did not occur during a specified reference period as a result of the protection provided by modern contraceptive use during the reference period.

8 MATERNAL DEATHS AVERTED

11 METHOD AVAILABILITY

A. The percentage of service delivery points (SDPs) that have at least 3 modern methods of contraception available on the day of the assessment.

B. The percentage of secondary and tertiary service delivery points (SDPs) that have at least 5 modern methods of contraception available on the day of the assessment.

12 DOMESTIC GOVERNMENT FAMILY PLANNING EXPENDITURES

Total annual public sector recurrent expenditures on family planning. This includes expenditures by all levels of government

See Section on "Domestic Government Expenditures on Family Planning " for more information

13 COUPLE-YEARS PROTECTION (CYPs)

The estimated protection provided by family planning services during a one year period, based upon the volume of all contraceptives sold or distributed free of charge to clients during that period. The CYP is calculated by multiplying the quantity of each method distributed to clients by a conversion factor, which yields an estimate of the duration of contraceptive protection provided per unit of that method.

14 METHOD INFORMATION INDEX

An index measuring the extent to which women were given specific information when they received family planning services. The index is composed of three questions: 1) Were you informed about other methods? 2) Were you informed about side effects? 3) Were you told what to do if you experienced side effects? The reported Method Information Index value is the percent of women who responded “yes” to all three questions.

15 FAMILY PLANNING COUNSELING

18 DISCONTINUATION & METHOD SWITCHING

A. Among women of reproductive age who began an episode of contraceptive use 3-62 months before being interviewed, the percentage of episodes where the specific method is discontinued within 12 months after beginning its use, reported by whether the woman discontinued while in need of contraception, discontinued because she is not in need of contraception, and the total all-reasons discontinuation rate.

B. Among women of reproductive age who began an episode of contraceptive use 3-62 months before being interviewed, the percentage of episodes where the specific method is discontinued within 12 months after beginning its use, and use of a different method begins after no more than one month of non-contraceptive use.

Disaggregated Estimates

The following tables present estimates for mCPR (Core Indicator 2), unmet need (Core Indicator 3) and demand satisfied (Core Indicator 4), disaggregated by age, urban/rural residence, and wealth quintile. These disaggregated estimates are only available from the most recent surveys for married or in-union women, and so may not match the figures in the estimate tables for indicators 2, 3 and 4. For most countries, unmet need and demand satisfied are reported with respect to any method of contraception, not just modern methods. For countries whose most recent survey is a PMA2020 survey, this data reflects unmet need and demand satisfied for modern methods.
