This report studies the connection between the use of modern contraceptive methods, and infant and under-five mortality rates (IMR and U5MR). Reduction in IMR and U5MR are benefits of contraceptive use that are not often measured and studied in the Indian context. Using the information given in the reproductive calendar history of the National Family Health Survey (2015–16), this study employs Bivariate analysis and the Cox proportional hazard model to reach its conclusions. The evidence, data, and analysis presented in this document can assist researchers, policymakers, and implementers to design and develop family planning interventions that will have a direct impact on the reduction of preventable child deaths.
