Family Planning--By Risks, Conditions, and Quality of Life Measures

Some things people do to keep from getting pregnant include not having sex at certain times, using birth
control methods such as the pill, Norplant, shots or Depo-provera, condoms, diaphragm, foam, IUD, having
their tubes tied, or having a vasectomy.

Are you or your husband/wife/partner doing anything now to keep from getting pregnant?*

Back to Family Planning.

*This question was asked of female respondents who reported being ages 18-50 years old and not pregnant
and of male respondents who reported being ages 18-59 years old.

^Use caution in interpreting percentages with a numerator of less than 20. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
