The authors explore how logistics data can be used to estimate contraceptive prevalence. Because of the need for more frequent contraceptive prevalence rate (CPR) estimates than population-based surveys currently provide, John Snow, Inc. (JSI) staff developed and evaluated models to generate country-level, method-specific contraceptive prevalence estimates. Results show a close correlation between the logistics distribution data being collected and actual use of short term family planning methods, demonstrating the quality of the current logistics data provided through the Procurement Planning and Monitoring Report (PPMR) and the Pipeline Monitoring and Procurement Planning System (PipeLine).
