Unintended Pregnancies

This indicator shows the percentage of mothers who reported their pregnancy as unintended. An unintended pregnancy is a pregnancy that is mistimed, unplanned, or unwanted at the time of conception. It is a core concept to better understand the fertility of populations and the unmet need for contraception (birth control) and family planning. Unintended pregnancy mainly results from the lack of, inconsistent, or incorrect use of effective contraceptive methods.
