Results of a representative survey

The BZgA commissions representative surveys and other scientific investigations as well as expert reports and evaluations in order to guarantee the quality of its activities in promoting health and preventing disease. The repeat surveys on the subject of adult contraceptive behaviour are used to develop media, measures and campaigns in the area of family planning.

TNS Emnid, Bielefeld, commissioned by the Bundeszentrale für gesundheitliche Aufklärung, conducted a current representative survey on adult contraceptive behaviour in the Federal Republic of Germany.

The study inquired about what contraceptive methods and measures are used by adult women and men. In addition their information-gathering behaviour, their preferred sources of information and the respondents’ level of knowledge about the subject of birth control were investigated.

The survey’s target group comprised women and men between the ages of 18 and 49 who had had sexual intercourse within the past twelve months. A total of 1,750 interviews were conducted. The survey ran from 12 – 31 January 2011 with the help of computer-supported telephone interviews.

At its core, the current survey is a repeat investigation of the 2003 and 2007 surveys, conducted on behalf of the BZgA, of adult contraceptive behaviour.
