As part of the global Family Planning 2020 efforts, India has been committed to reaching a minimum of 48 million additional women with FP services. To attain this goal, Family Planning programs may need to adopt district-based health planning measures due to the large inter-district variations. This research provides evidence by analyzing district-level variations in modern family planning methods (mCPR) in rural areas, changes in contraceptive use over time, and the association between changes and macro-level socio-demographic characteristics. It employs data from the third round of District Level Household Survey, and the fourth round of the National Family Health Survey. Program managers and policymakers can consult these findings to design district-specific strategies that effectively address barriers to contraceptive use in rural India.
