Abstract

The high population growth in Indonesia can be due to inefficacious target of contraceptive use. In 2018, the number of active contraceptive users in Indonesia and West Java Province was still below 70%, which caused by various factors. Thus, this study aims at analyzing sociodemographic factors, knowledge of contraceptive methods, sources of family planning information, and insurance ownership on the behavior of women of childbearing age in contraceptive use. This study employs an analytical method with a cross-sectional research design, and secondary sources from the 2019 Program Performance and Accountability Survey of KKBPK for West Java. A multivariate analysis was conducted using multiple logistic regression. The results of this study revealed that the prevalence of contraceptive use among women of childbearing age (women aged 15-49 years) in West Java was 69.55%. The sociodemographic factors related to contraceptive use were younger age, higher education level, lower wealth quintile, and living in rural areas. More knowledge of modern contraceptives and information from more institutions were related to an increase in contraceptive use. However, information from a wider variety of mass media was related to a decrease in contraceptive use. Meanwhile, health insurance ownership was not related to contraceptive use behavior. Sociodemographic factors, knowledge of modern contraceptives, and various sources of family planning information were related to contraceptive use. Therefore, these factors are essential to be considered in implementing family planning programs, especially in relation to contraceptive use.
