Abstract

Objectives: Our objective was to determine the level and quality of antural family planning service provided by Roman Catholic Diocese-related programs in the United States. Study disign: Programs volunteerd quarterly data for five years, using least squares regression we estimated service levels for programs never reporting. Results: From 1988 to 1992, 78 dioceses ever reported and 96 never reported. The majority of clients were avoiding pregnancy and receiving follow-up. An average of 18 061 women were taught by these programs each year in the reporting period. Conclusion: Without greater commitment of resources, it is likely that NFP will continue to be a marginal method of family planning in the United States.
