1. People of Different Ages Use Contraception
Based on a study conducted in 2019 by the World Health Organization, around 842 million out of 1.9 billion women of reproductive age (aged 15 to 49 years old) around the world are said to be using contraception.
This number has drastically increased in 2020 alone. As a matter of fact, the number of women of reproductive age has already risen to 1.1 billion in 2020 from the initial 900 million in 2000. This number is slated to increase over the next few years and is even projected to grow by another 70 million by 2030.
Apart from the increase in women using contraceptives, the World Health Organization also revealed that there has been an increased preference for more modern birth control options. The number of those who opted for more modern contraception is reported to be around 851 million from the initial 663 million. The most preferred and popular choice is the pill.
