Enter the number of women using contraception aged 15-49 and the total number of women aged 15-49 into the Contraceptive Prevalence Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Contraceptive Prevalence Rate.

## Contraceptive Prevalence Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Contraceptive Prevalence Rate.

CPR = WU / TW * 100

Variables:

- CPR is the Contraceptive Prevalence Rate (%)
- #WU is the number of women using contraception aged 15-49
- #TW is the total number of women aged 15-49

To calculate the contraceptive prevalence rate, divide the number of women using contraception aged 15-49 by the total women population in that age range, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Contraceptive Prevalence Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Contraceptive Prevalence Rate.

- First, determine the number of women using contraception aged 15-49.
- Next, determine the total number of women aged 15-49.
- Next, gather the formula from above = CPR = #WU / #TW * 100.
- Finally, calculate the Contraceptive Prevalence Rate.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

number of women using contraception aged 15-49 = 5,000

total number of women aged 15-49 = 12,000

CPR = #WU / #TW * 100** **= ?
