Kenya Family Planning Datasheet 2016

(October 2016) The PACE Project, in collaboration with Kenya’s National Council for Population and Development (NCPD), produced a new data sheet with findings from the 2014 Kenya Demographic and Health Survey (KDHS). For the first time ever, this survey collected data at the county level, reflecting Kenya’s recent government decentralization. 

The data sheet includes figures that explain national data for married women ages 15 to 49 on the demand for contraception that was satisfied, use of or intention to use contraception, and the most popular sources of contraception. In addition, the data sheet highlights other indicators related to family planning and reproductive health, including teen pregnancy, family planning messages, and sexual violence. A large data table includes county, regional, and national indicators such as population, education and literacy, pregnancy and fertility, sexual knowledge and practices, and maternal health. 

The data sheet is a valuable tool to policymakers, advocates, and public health planners interested in the status of family planning and reproductive health in specific counties in Kenya, or at regional or national levels.
