Women’s Contraceptive Profiles throughout the Life Course in Burundi and Nepal The DHS Program

A new DHS Analytical Study, Women’s Contraceptive Profiles throughout the Life Course in Burundi and Nepal, identifies patterns in women's contraceptive use and pregnancy experiences using Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) contraceptive calendar data.

The study applies sequence and cluster analysis of contraceptive calendar data to identify and visualize profiles that characterize women's contraceptive and pregnancy behaviors in Burundi and Nepal.
