Acceptance of family planning practice among rural women clientele.
G Kaur, TR Singh
July-September 1982, 26(3):194-9
An attempt was made to examine the factors affecting the acceptance of family planning practices among rural women clientele in India. The study was conducted in 4 randomly selected villages, i.e., Pattan, Mirzapur, Nyana, Raipur of Hissar 1 and 2 blocks of Haryana State. The respondents were classified into low, medium, and high socioeconomic strata with the help of weighted cumulative frequency method of which 2/3 of the respondents were drawn by proportionate stratified random sampling which constituted the sample of 100 rural women. Adoption of family planning practices was considered the dependent variable and 14 sociopersonal, economic, psychological, and communication variables were considered independent variables for the purpose of analysis. The adoption of family planning practice was measured by the adoption index of Singh (1975). The socioeconomic status scale was used to quantify the variables such as education, family size, family type, caste, farm size, occupation, and social participation. The majority of the respondents had medium and low levels of adoption of family planning (45% each), and only 10% had a high level of adoption of family planning. The relationship of independent variables and variability caused by these in the adoption behavior of rural women was established by using correlation and multiple regression analysis techniques. The rural women's education, occupation, household material possession, information source utilization, knowledge and attitude towards the family planning practices were found to be positively and significantly related to the level of adoption of family planning practices. Age, caste, family size, social participation, urban contact, land holding, family type and agricultural material possession were found to be nonsignificant. Respondents with low formal education, involved in labor occupation, low household material possession, and low level of knowledge adopted family planning to a lesser extent, but rural women with a favorable attitude showed an upward trend of adoption of family planning.
