Family Planning and Reproductive Health Indicators Database
The Family Planning and Reproductive Health Indicators Database provides a comprehensive listing of the most widely used indicators for evaluating family planning and reproductive health programs in developing countries. The database contains definitions, data requirements, data sources, purposes, and issues for core indicators along with links to other websites and documents containing additional family planning and reproductive health indicators.The Indicator Database replaces the Compendium of Indicators for Evaluating Reproductive Health Programs (MEASURE Evaluation, 2002) and was developed and is managed by the MEASURE Evaluation Population and Reproductive Health (PRH) project. Although funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), it applies to family planning and reproductive health programs sponsored by a variety of funding agencies, governments, or NGOs worldwide. Specifically, the database provides a menu of indicators to be used selectively as part of the evaluation of national programs, regional programs, and country projects.This is a dynamic site, being updated as-needed as family planning and reproductive health research and programming changes and evolves. Although all of the core indicators by crosscutting or specific programmatic areas have been identified, not all of the indicator guidance has been developed. The guidance will be uploaded to the database when it becomes available.
