Perspectives on Family Planning in Ibadan and Kaduna, Nigeria: A Qualitative Analysis
The objective of this qualitative study was to understand key factors influencing the demand, or lack thereof, for family planning in Ibadan and Kaduna, Nigeria.
A total of 26 focus group discussions were conducted in September and October 2010. The groups were stratified by sex, age, marital status, wealth, family planning use, and city. The data were coded using ATLAS.ti 6 software and analyzed using the thematic content analysis approach.
Overall recommendations were:
- Nigerians from the southern and northern regions of the country are more similar than different.
- There was a clear preference for smaller family size by most study participants – yet little discussion about how to achieve that preference.
