Abstract
The assessment of progress in improving access to family planning is needed at the subnational
level, particularly for a populous country of high demographic diversity like India. We developed
a statistical model that can generate subnational estimates and projections for family planning
indicators. We packaged this model in the form of a user-friendly web application, the Family
Planning Estimation Tool (FPET), which can be operated by local stakeholders. We present annual
estimates of rates and trends in the contraceptive prevalence rate, unmet need and demand for
family planning for 29 states and union territories in India from 1990 to 2015 produced with FPET.
The identification of states/union territories that are performing better or worse help to focus
attention on areas where it is most needed. The analysis can be generalized to other countries as
well as other types of population subgroups, and carried out in FPET.
