This study investigated the discrepancy in data on long-acting reversible contraceptive and permanent method (LARC/PM) use among currently married women of reproductive age (CMWRA) between service statistics and household surveys through a comparative analysis of data from three sources: the government’s Family Planning Management Information System (FPMIS), surveillance, and an independent survey. The study found that an erroneous list of CMWRA maintained by the FPMIS appeared to be the main reason for the discrepancy and over-reporting of LARC/PM in FPMIS. The primary reasons behind this over-reporting identified were maintenance of an improper lists of women in the FPMIS which continue to keep non-eligible women migrated out, moved beyond reproductive age, or died) with a higher LARC/PM use rate (16%) and exclude eligible women with (a) lower LARC/PM use rate (3%).
