Contraception use jumps by 8.7%

Date: 04 December 2021 Tags: Reports & Indices
  • The increased use of contraception across the country has been a major factor in preventing unwanted pregnancies, leading to a decrease in India’s Total Fertility Rate (TFR) to below replacement level.
  • In just five years, from NFHS 4 (2015-16) to NHFS 5 (2019-20), the use of modern contraceptives for family planning has jumped by 8.7 percentage points – from 47.8 per cent to 56.5 percent.
  • While as many as 30 out of 36 states/UTs have shown an increase in contraception use, the improvement in Uttar Pradesh’s and Bihar’s numbers have been especially encouraging, given their large populations.
