Unintended Pregnancies in Kenya: A Country Profile


The methodology for this country profile combines extensive desk reviews of existing literature and secondary data analysis of existing data sets. Desk reviews included examination of government documents, charters, declarations, conventions, peer-reviewed publications, published and unpublished research and reports. Data management and analyses were done in STATA 12.1. Differential analyses were conducted for chapters 3 and 4 by age, education, wealth, residence and province. The ultimate goal was a trend analysis, done in an equity context, so changes over time and subsets that were vulnerable to the main outcome were captured.
