Back to Family Planning.

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

First five most frequent response categorie s presented here. OTHER category was formed from the remaining responses.

^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.
