The role of men in the family-building process has been a concern in areas of the world where men are believed to hold views antagonistic to family planning. This report analyzes 17 surveys of nationally representative data on men and examines indicators including fertility levels, fertility preferences, knowledge and use of contraception, and intentions to use in the future. Of the 17 surveys covered in this report, 7 were conducted in West Africa, 6 were in East Africa, 2 were conducted in North Africa, and 2 were in Asia.
