ABSTRACT
SUMMARY: Fertility control is a fundamental aspect of women's health, and it is therefore important to have accurate and up-to-date information on the contraceptive knowledge, opinions and practices of women in Canada. The 1998 Canadian Contraception Study was conducted on a sample of women aged 15-44 from across Canada who were part of a panel of 60,000 households previously selected for survey research. Of 2,893 surveys mailed out, 1,599 responses were returned, a response rate of 55%. Responses were weighted to be representative by region and age within marital status, based on Canadian census data. The questionnaire asked about contraceptive practices, past, present, and future, as well as about respondents' familiarity with and opinion of different methods of contraception. The survey also included questions about general sexual and reproductive health, including experience of sexual dysfunctions.
