Intra-household influence, or influence from other family members within the same household, can be an even greater motivation for the adoption of contraceptives than promotion through other peers. This evidence is an indicator for Family Planning program implementers and managers to promote intra-household advocacy to increase uptake of contraceptives. The research in this document includes data for 1,361 currently married women between 15–24 years from women data of the National Family Health Survey 2015–16. It uses logistic regressions to analyze contraceptive use by women in the same household. It concluded that the use remained significant even after controlling for background characteristics, showing the independent effect of intra-household influence on contraceptive use.
