This examines the contraceptive use pattern of the Asian countries and concludes that choice of contraceptive depends a lot on the socio-economic and cultrual set up of the country. Experience shows that as the contraceptive prevalence increases and people start opting for small family size, use of sterilization increases. The only exception is India where sterilization has dominated the scene right from the beginning, may be more because of programme effort than people choice.
