The objectives of this study are: (a) to estimate the impact of women's socioeconomic and access characteristics on the choice of specific contraceptive methods; and (b) to identify the wider determinants of family planning behaviour that warrant attention in the policy-making process. A multinominal logit model is estimated using cross-sectional data from the South African National Household Survey of Health Inequalities in 1994.
