Family Planning and Reproductive Health Indicators Database
This site 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. Users of the database are encouraged to use the indicators as a template for country- or project-specific indicators, to be modified as necessary.
