  • Description:
    The 1989 Jamaica Contraceptive Prevalence Survey is the fourth in a series of contraceptive surveys sponsored by the National Family Planning Board since 1974. The surveys are carried out in order to provide the Board with information which may be used to evaluate past programs, to monitor current activities, and to provide guidelines for the charting of new directions. This survey is wider in scope than the earlier ones and reflects the degree of integration of the Board's programs into the overall health strategy of the Government. Accordingly, it covers not only data on contraceptive prevalence but also on related subjects associated with women and health. Specific areas covered are fertility and general factors, which impact on fertility, infant and child mortality, maternal and child health, utilization of health facilities provided by both government and the private sector, together with behaviour factors related to reproduction. The report summarizes the findings of the survey which are of greatest interest to policy makers and administrators of health and family planning programs in the country and Presents, in addition, recommendations made at a dissemination seminar held to evaluate the findings of the survey.

    The 1989 Jamaica CPS was funded by the United States Agency for International Development and was directed through all its stages by the Survey Director, Mrs. Carmen McFarlane, former Director General of the Statistical Institute of Jamaica while fieldwork, data entry, and printing of this report were carried out by STATIN. Technical assistance in all aspects of the survey was provided by professional officers of the Division of Reproductive Health, Centre for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, United States Centres for Disease Control, who also undertook responsibility for the tabulation of the data. The fiinal report was written jointly by Mrs. McFarlane and Dr. Charles Warren of CDC.
