This series of fact sheets uses data from the Urban Institute’s 2018 Survey of Family Planning and Women’s Lives, a nationally representative survey of women ages 18 to 44. These 2-page fact sheets describe women’s frequency of birth control use, current birth control methods, barriers to birth control, factors important to method choice, and women’s perceptions of birth control. The series covers birth control use among low-income women, young women, Black women, and Hispanic women (available in English and Spanish).
