Abstract Relative to neighboring countries, Zambia has among the most progressive abortion policies, but numerous sociopolitical constraints inhibit knowledge of pregnancy termination rights and access to safe abortion services. Multistage cluster sampling was used to randomly select 1,486 women aged 15–44 years from households in three provinces. We used latent class analysis (LCA) to partition women into discrete groups based on patterns of endorsed support for legalized abortion on six socioeconomic and health conditions. Predictors of probabilistic membership in latent profiles of support ..read more

Adjusting Injectable Contraceptive Use for Months Since the Last Injection
Wiley Online Library » Studies in Family Planning
by Mahesh Karra, David Canning
2w ago
Abstract Injectables are one of the most popular methods of contraception worldwide, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. An advantage of injectables over shorter-acting methods is that they provide additional flexibility by not requiring re-supply as frequently. However, there is a risk that injectable users may delay their next injection and may therefore have reduced or no protection from pregnancy. In surveys, women may report that they are using contraception in the form of injectables when the time since they had their last injection (more than four months) would imply that they have redu ..read more

Abstract Malawi has high unmet need for contraception with a costed national plan to increase contraception use. Estimating how such investments might impact future population size in Malawi can help policymakers understand effects and value of policies to increase contraception uptake. We developed a new model of contraception and pregnancy using individual-level data capturing complexities of contraception initiation, switching, discontinuation, and failure by contraception method, accounting for differences by individual characteristics. We modeled contraception scale-up via a population ca ..read more

Access to Higher Education and Adolescent Fertility in Chile
Wiley Online Library » Studies in Family Planning
by Viviana Salinas, Valentina Jorquera‐Samter, Pilar Wiegand‐Cruz
2M ago
Abstract This study investigates gender differences in the association between adolescent fertility and the likelihood of initiating higher education among young Chilean men and women. We adopt an entropy balancing strategy to estimate the association between adolescent fertility and the likelihood of starting higher education while accounting for potential selection into early childbearing due to socioeconomic status and prior academic achievement. We use data from official national registers that cover a cohort of Chilean students who attended publicly funded schools and who successfully com ..read more

Contraceptive Intentions and Use throughout the Extended Postpartum Period: A Panel Study in Ethiopia
Wiley Online Library » Studies in Family Planning
by Sophia Magalona, Celia Karp, Solomon Shiferaw, Assefa Seme, Birikty Lulu, Mahari Yihdego, Linnea Zimmerman
4M ago
Abstract The postpartum period is an ideal time for women to access contraception, but the prevalence of postpartum contraceptive use remains low in sub-Saharan Africa. To better understand the gap between women's desires to space or limit births and their contraceptive behaviors, intention to use contraception has been proposed as a person-centered measure of contraceptive demand. Using data from a panel study of Ethiopian women aged 15–49 who were interviewed at six weeks, six months, and one year postpartum, we examined the dynamics of contraceptive intention in the first year postpartum an ..read more

Exploring Multiple Measures of Pregnancy Preferences and Their Relationship with Postpartum Contraceptive Uptake Using Longitudinal Data from PMA Ethiopia
Wiley Online Library » Studies in Family Planning
by Linnea A. Zimmerman, Celia Karp, Sophia Magalona, Solomon Shiferaw, Assefa Seme, Saifuddin Ahmed
6M ago
Abstract There are significant gaps in our understanding of how the experience of an unintended pregnancy affects subsequent contraceptive behavior. Our objective was to explore how three measures of pregnancy preferences—measuring timing-based intentions, emotional orientation, and planning status—were related to the uptake of postpartum family planning within one year after birth. Additionally, we tested whether the relationship between each measure and postpartum family planning uptake differs by parity, a key determinant of fertility preference. Adjusted hazards regression results show tha ..read more

More than Measurement Error: Discrepant Reporting of Contraceptive Use and the Role of Wives’ and Husbands’ Educational Attainment
Wiley Online Library » Studies in Family Planning
by Elyse A. Jennings, Rachael S. Pierotti
7M ago
Abstract This paper describes discrepancies in spouses’ reports of the use of female-controlled, nonvisible contraceptive methods using data from rural Nepal that were collected monthly from both spouses of 822 couples between 2008 and 2016. We find that spouses in about half of couples provided discrepant reports during the period of observation, and these discrepancies occurred in 14 percent of the months of observation. We then investigate these discrepant reports as possible indicators of incomplete transparency regarding reproductive choices and examine whether they are associated with wi ..read more
