The 2003 National Demographic and Health Survey (NDHS) of
the National Statistics Office (NSO) reveals that there is a steady
increase in the percentage of married women age 15-49 years
who use modern contraceptive methods in the Cordillera
Administrative Region (CAR). From 1993 to 1998, the use of
modern family planning methods increased substantially by 7.5
percentage points or from 23.1 to 30.6 percent. From 1998 to
2003, the use of modern methods in CAR increased slightly by
1.2 percentage points to reach 31.8 percent. Despite the
increase reported in the past decade, CAR still falls behind the
national average use of 33.4 percent in 2003.
