dc.description.abstract Global population is increasing at an alarming rate and Ethiopia is contributing 1.5 million persons / year. The pyramid shaped age structure of the population as in most developing countries is a prima facie evidence of high fertility and imminent population explosion. Single and multiple decrement life table techniques were used to analyze pattern of acceptance and use effectiveness of contraceptive methods in Dale Woreda Yirgalem Family Planning Project, Ethiopia. The majority of acceptors (59%) never had formal education. Substantial percentage (79%) of acceptors were in the age group 20-34. Continuation rate was high 94.1% for pill, ( 97.1%) for injectable, (82.6%) for other methods and (95.1%) for all methods combined. Single decrement life table technique showed that educational status, number of living children and husband's attitudes were found to be important factors for high continuation rates. FOCUS group discussion identified very poor, and in some cases non existent service as a barrier preventing many clients from using IUDs and VSC. A relatively high use of contraception by rural areas (62 .8%) compared to (36.1%) urban showed a substantial penetration o f the rural areas by the program. The paper argues that given the proper time and effort, contraceptive practices may prove effective in controlling population growth rates. The study concludes by establishing a strong case for a wide and integrated family planning programs that emphasize on effective methods with a high rate of acceptance and continuation. considerable effort will have to be devoted to increasing the availability of FP services particularly It is recommended that a community based operational research should be conducted to provide strong evidence and substantial conclusion en_US
