CONTRACEPTION COUNTS, BY STATE AND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT
The typical American woman must use contraception for nearly three decades of her life in order to prevent unintended pregnancy. Many of these women, at some point during their reproductive lives, are in need of publicly funded contraceptive services and supplies. But states--and even congressional districts within each state--vary widely in how well they meet women’s need for contraception.
Contraception Counts, a series of downloadable, printable state and district fact sheets from The Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI), provides updated, comparative information on:
- pregnancies and their outcomes;
- the need for contraceptive services and supplies;
- how each state or district is working to meet women’s contraceptive needs;
- the impact of subsidized services; and
- the key role of the Title X program.
