A Multilevel Model of Family Planning Availability and Contraceptive Use in Rural Thailand

Publication Abstract

Entwisle, B., Albert Hermalin, P. Kamnuansilpa, and A. Chamratrithirong. 1984. "A Multilevel Model of Family Planning Availability and Contraceptive Use in Rural Thailand." Demography, 21(4): 559-74.

This paper assesses the ways in which the availability of family planning program outlets influences the likelihood of contraceptive use in rural Thailand. It focuses on a village-level measure of actual availability of sources rather than respondent perceptions of availability. Individual level and village-level data collected as part of the second Thailand Contraceptive Prevalence Survey are used to test three hypotheses about the effects of actual availability: that (a) availability of family planning outlets increases the likelihood of contraceptive use; (b) it enhances the effect of a desire for no more children on the likelihood of use; and (c) it weakens the positive relationship between education and the likelihood use.
