  • iiprogram measures derived from the 1989 Bang'ladesh Ferti'l itysurvey (conducted by Nat iona'l Inst itute f or populat ionResearch and Training-NIPORT, Dhaka, Bangladesh) on UnmetCont racept i ve Need.

    Ihe f ind'ings reveal that in Bangladesh, 29 percentof currently married women of reproductive ages were usinga contraceptive method(both modern and traditional) and 71percent were not practicing any method.

    It appears from the secondary data ana'lysis thatthere is a "sizab'le" unmet need (35.2 percent ) in thecountry---23.2 percent are in need of contraception forlimiting and 12.O percent are in need for spacing. Unmetneed is negatively associated with education, place ofresi dence, empl oyment status, el ect ri f i cat i on, andfie'ldworker visits, thus implying that development effortsand fami'ly planning program efforts are both needed tot rans'l at e some of t he unmet need i nt o act ual use .
