REGION:  NATIONAL
Resource Type: Report
TOPIC(S): CONTRACEPTIVE PREVALENCE
This article profiles Canadian women aged 15 to 49 who use oral contraceptives (OCs), and compares certain of their characteristics with those of non-users. It also examines associations between OC use and selected characteristics, including cardiovascular risk factors. The data are from the cross-sectional household component of Statistics Canada's 1996/97 National Population Health Survey. An estimated 1.3 million women aged 15 to 49, or 18%, reported using OCs in 1996/97. OC use was significantly associated with being young, unmarried, sexually active, and having prescription drug insurance and relatively high education. About one-third of OC users also smoked.
