Family Planning

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.
