Adolescent reproductive health is part of internationally agreed development goals. Unmarried adolescents are not commonly included in global monitoring of contraceptive use despite the more severe consequences of unintended childbearing for them. The authors document levels and trends of contraceptive prevalence and demand for married and sexually active unmarried adolescent women aged 15–19 in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa. They estimate the effect of adolescent contraceptive use and marital status on fertility and the impact of meeting current demand.
