Abstract: Family Planning Information, Education, Communication (FP IEC) takes an important role in improving achievement of prevalence of Family Planning participation. However, contraceptive use prevalence in Indonesia within the last decade (2002-2012) did not significantly increase, although many FP IEC activities had been performed. This study aimed to determine socioeconomic demographic factors related to FP IEC, any IEC elements related to contraceptive use and IEC elements affecting on contraceptive use. Analysis used Indonesia Demographic and Health Survey 2012 as data source with analysis unit namely married women aged 15-49 years. Samples were 33,465 married women. Analysis used odds ratio (OR) between women receiving FP IEC toward women not getting access to FP IEC related to contraceptive use. This study found that FP IEC, both media and officers were important factors in contraceptive use. IEC through television and poster/flyer had a significant relation with contraceptive use (OR 1.6 and 1.3). Medical officers, FP officers and informal figures in community played an important role in FP information and contraceptive use (OR 2.2; 1.4; and 1.2). In line with results, visits of FP officers and medical officers informing contraception to clients at healthcare facilities significantly affected on contraceptive use (OR 1.5 and 2.6).
