Methodology Notes: 

    Family planning clinics are considered to offer emergency contraception onsite if they report offering either Plan B, Preven, or a concentrated dose of oral contraceptives for emergency contraception to clients onsite.

    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).

Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020: 
This objective differs from Healthy People 2010 objective 09-05 in that the Healthy People 2010 objective focused on family planning agencies which this objective focuses on family planning clinics. A family planning agency may oversee a number of clinics, but the clinic is where services are provided to clients. It is important that a full-range of contraceptive methods be available to clients at the clinic-level where they receive their reproductive health services. The objective has also been revised to clarify that the data source focuses specifically on publicly funded family planning clinics.
