Estimates of Progress

Integrating Private Sector Data into FP2020 Annual Estimates

In recent years, the Track20 Project has made great strides in increasing the use of routine data to inform progress in modern contraceptive prevalence. This data is used to inform annual estimates of progress published in Family Planning 2020’s annual progress report. In the 2018 progress report, 13 countries used service statistics to help inform their current progress. Generally, countries include service delivery or commodity statistics provided through the public sector and some through NGO partners using the Estimated Modern Use tool. To account for the remaining private sector statistics, countries generally use a methodology developed by Track20 using Demographic and Health Survey data. This document explores potential alternatives to this approach by including private sector sales data into the Estimated Modern Use tool.
