Maps are available for the years 2010 and 2015. All maps can be viewed by county-level density of women in need of publicly funded contraceptive services.
Notes and definitions
- A publicly funded clinic is a site that offers contraceptive services to the general public and uses public funds (e.g., federal, state or local funding though programs such as Title X, Medicaid or the federally qualified health center program) to provide free or reduced-fee services to at least some clients. Sites must serve at least 10 contraceptive clients per year. These sites are operated by a diverse range of provider agencies, including public health departments, Planned Parenthood affiliates, hospitals, federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) and other independent organizations. In this report, these sites are primarily referred to as “clinics”; other Guttmacher Institute reports may use the synonymous term “center.”
- A Title X–funded clinic is a site that receives federal funding from the Title X national family planning program.
- A female contraceptive client is a woman who made at least one initial or subsequent visit for contraceptive services during the 12-month reporting period covered by this data collection effort. This includes all women who received a medical examination related to the provision of a contraceptive method, made supply-related return visits, received contraceptive counseling and a method prescription but deferred the medical examination, or chose nonmedical contraceptive methods, even if a medical examination was not performed, as long as a chart was maintained.
- Women in need of publicly funded contraceptive services are those women who a) are younger than 20 or are poor or low-income (i.e., have a family income less than 250% of the federal poverty level) and b) are sexually active and able to become pregnant but do not want to become pregnant. In the maps, the number of women in need of publicly funded contraceptive services is shown per 100 square miles, calculated using data from Guttmacher’s Contraceptive Needs and Services 2010 report and 2014 update for the 2010 and 2015 maps, respectively.
- All client estimates have been rounded to the nearest 10. Therefore, county and state totals do not always sum to the state and national totals, respectively.
- Percentages have been rounded and do not always sum to 100.
