Abstrakt: Men’s involvement in their partners’ lives can be an essential driver in terms of the utilization
of family planning programs. Using cross-sectional data from the Angola Demographic and
Health Survey from 2015-2016, this thesis investigates the factors influencing family planning
use from the men’s point of view. Apart from the expected positive correlation of education, age,
place of residence, and economic status with contraceptive use, it is hypothesized that men’s
attitude, knowledge, and fertility preferences affect contraceptive use and unmet need of their
spouses. Using logistic and probit regressions, the results of this thesis point out a significant
positive relationship between men’s knowledge of contraception, their fertile preferences, and
their partners’ use of contraception. Lastly, the thesis lays down a few suggestions for future
research.
