Akpotor, who identified Kaduna State as having 16.7 per cent mCPR lower than the national average of 19 per cent, said that allowing CPs and PPMVs to provide expanded FP services would enable states witness drastic improvements.
'It is therefore strategic to engage CPs and PPMVs as providers of expanded FP services for Nigeria to achieve 27 per cent mCPR by 2020.
Simple coefficients were estimated for correlations among values for the NQCI, TFR, mCPR and the two other indices of quality, to indicate the degree of observed or gross association between these variables.
However, the correlation coefficients for the relationships between these three indicators of quality and both TFR and mCPR were small and not statistically significant, suggesting that the dimensions of service measured by TFR and mCPR differ from those measured by the three indices of quality.

The efforts put into raising awareness about family planning seems to be paying off, as the 2017 Multi-Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) shows an increase in the state's mCPR
to 30 per cent.
CONTEXT: Commonly used indicators of contraceptive behavior in a population--modern contraceptive prevalence (mCPR), unmet need for contraception, demand for contraception and demand satisfied--are not well-suited for evaluating the progress made by government family planning programs in helping women and men achieve their reproductive goals.
Trends in a proposed new indicator, the public-sector family planning program impact score (PFPI), and its relationship to mCPR and the family planning effort score were also assessed.
The correlation coefficient between the MII and the modern contraceptive prevalence rate (MCPR
) was not statistically significant at either time 1 or time 2, which suggests that a country's MII does not depend on the level of modern contraceptive use.
Malawi's modern contraceptive prevalence rate (mCPR
)-- the proportion of women of reproductive age who report that they (or their partner) are currently using a modern contraceptive--was six times as high in 2010 as it was in 1992 (42% vs.
