Subnational Family Planning Estimation Tool

Family planning progress estimator

The subnational family planning estimation tool (SFPET) is an interactive web app created to aid policymakers in assessing progress towards family planning goals by visualizing both model-based and direct survey estimates of family planning indicators at the subnational level. While the framework used is similar to other tools and the findings are broadly consistent with previous work, SFPET is unique in offering these subnational insights.

The tool displays estimates of family planning indicators of unmet need, use of traditional contraceptive methods, and use of modern contraceptive methods at the first and second administration level for 26 sub-Saharan countries. Estimates are disaggregated across demographic subgroups, including age, parity, and urban-rural status, allowing the user to investigate subnational heterogeneities and identify the most underserved demographic groups.
