The Guttmacher Institute conducts a periodic survey of agencies and clinics providing subsidized family planning services in the United States and its jurisdictions. Data for this objective are derived from the periodic survey of family planning clinics (including Title X-funded clinics, health departments, hospitals, community health centers, independent clinics, and Planned Parenthood clinics).
