Technical notes:
Contraceptive prevalence refers to the percentage of women of reproductive age, married or in union, currently using contraception, unless otherwise specified. The data on contraceptive use has been compiled by the United Nations Population Division and the United Nations Statistics Division from the results of a variety of surveys based on nationally representative samples of women of reproductive age as indicated in the far-right column of the table. Only the most recent statistics from surveys dated 1985 and later are presented here.
The contraceptive prevalence for any method, refers to the use of contraception regardless of method. The contraceptive prevalence for modern methods refers to the use of the following methods: female and male sterilization, the contraceptive pill, the intrauterine device (IUD), injectables, implants, female and male condom, cervical cap, diaphragm, spermicidal foams, jelly, cream, sponges and emergency contraception; and excludes the lactational amenorrhea method (LAM), abortions, periodic abstinence and withdrawal. The figures derived from the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) may differ from those published by ORC Macro due to the exclusion of the lactational amenorrhea method (LAM) from the calculation of contraceptive prevalence of modern methods.
