Contraceptive prevalence rate (CPR)

Contraceptive prevalence rate is the proportion of women of reproductive age who are using (or whose partner is using) a contraceptive method at a given point in time. It is used as an indicator of health; population; development and women’s empowerment. It also serves as a proxy measure of access to reproductive health services.
