Contraception use by Australian women


There are limited Australian data on the use of contraception by women, their choice of contraceptive methods, patterns of use of contraceptive methods over various reproductive life stages, and following reproductive events such as having a child or miscarriage. There is a lack of information on the socioeconomic, demographic and health characteristics of women in Australia who use different contraceptive methods. Reliable and up-to-date data on how the choice and use of contraception varies over the course of reproductive life, as well as the socio-economic determinants, are important to help inform government policies and strategies.
