Abstract/Summary

This study describes the patterns of contraceptive use among women of reproductive age in 1993 and 1998. It seeks to find out whether socio-economic factors such as education, wealth, employment and type of occupation of women's partners are significantly associated with contraceptive use. It also seeks to find out whether significant associations between capacity to pay and willingness to pay among women according to wealth status exist.Modified Andersen's Model for Determinants to Use of Health Services was adapted in this study.A re-analysis of the 1993 Philippine National Demographic Survey and the 1998 Philippine National Demographic and Health Survey was done. Respondents who were married and cohabiting women aged 15-49 years old were included in this study. A total of 8,961 women for 1993 and a total of 8,336 women for 1998 were covered.Findings revealed significant associations between contraceptive use and the socio-economic factors. In terms of capacity and willingness to pay, contraceptive users were actually willing to pay up to certain amounts for specific contraceptive products and family planning services. Also, significant associations between capacity to pay and willingness to pay among women by wealth status existed at certain amounts for specific contraceptive products. Education is also significantly associated with willingness to pay at certain amounts. To conclude, the study points forward to some policy, program and research recommendations.
