The rapid population growth does not match with available resource in Ethiopia even though household level family planning delivery has been put in place. This study has the objective to identify factors that influence modern contraceptive use among married women in Ethiopia. The data in the study were obtained from the 2011 EDHS. Cross tabulations were carried out at the bivariate level to assess the association between modern contraceptive use and each of the independent variables while binary multiple logistic regression analysis was used to identify the factors influencing modem contraceptive use among married women in Ethiopia. The likelihood of modern contraceptives use increased with increase in married women’s age and then decreased towards the end of women’s reproductive age.

Couple based approach; using couple data derived from Kenya DHS-2009 was used to examine factors responsible for couple unmet need for family planning in order to unearth opportunities for practical and policy approaches that can accelerate the uptake of contraceptives among couples in Kenya. It adopted the theory of planned behaviour, an extension of the theory of reasoned action. Results showed couple unmet need for Family Planning (13%) to be inversely related to reproductive lifespan; women empowerment; education and decision-making are significant predictors of couple unmet need. Employed women are 1.5 times less likely to have unmet need relative to employed ones, and husbands dominance in decision making is associated with 2 times high couple unmet need.
