Summary

The purpose of this study was to ascertain reasons for non-participation in a public family planning program following a commitment to participate. A sample of 650 women who had made appointments at a public family planning clinic were divided into four groups: Post-Partum Kept (PPK), Post-Partum Missed (PPM), Supply Kept (SK), and Supply Missed (SM). Interviews were completed on 329 (51%) of the sample. The focus of each interview was a 45-item attitude questionnaire. A multiple discriminant analysis (MDA) on the background data revealed no significant differences among any of the four groups of respondents. A principal component factor analysis with varimax rotation computed on 45 attitude items resulted in three independent content-homogeneous components which accounted for approximately 27% of the total variance. No significant differences were found between the SK and SM groups. It was concluded that respondents who missed post-partum appointments had less favorable attitudes toward birth control and the clinic, and were more concerned with personal rights than the respondents who kept the appointments.
