Women influence decisions in the home and community

By graduation, 93% of women reported involvement in household decisions about family planning methods, up from 56% at enrolment. 


Data was provided by 3,195 participants who graduated from Women for Women International's core programme between January and December 2017. This dataset only includes baseline and endline data for sampled graduates who were interviewed in both survey rounds. For data related to household decision-making, women whose responses were recorded as “N/A” are excluded from sample. 

Purchasing power parities (PPPs) are the rates of currency conversion that equalise the purchasing power of different currencies by eliminating the differences in price levels between countries. In their simplest form, PPPs are price relatives that show the ratio of the prices in national currencies of the same good or service in different countries. PPPs are also calculated for product groups and for each of the various levels of aggregation up to and including GDP. Read more.
