Efforts to accelerate the decline in fertility through family planning programs should be increased, especially to target young couples, even more to target those with low parity or PUSMUPAR. This is important since the proportion of fertile couples in this age group (15-29 years) is much higher than the older age group. Thus, the provision of contraception for this group has a higher probability of preventing pregnancy compared to the older age group. Data showed the birth rate (Total Fertility Rate/TFR) in Yogyakarta Special Region Province had increased from 1.8 in 2000 to 2.1 in 2010. Figure showed on average fertile couples tend to have two children or more. Programs to control the population growth rate are also needed here and should be based on a holistic assessment of PUS group which had two children or more. CPPS UGM conducted this study with the following aims: 1) to determine the socio-economic conditions of PUSMUPAR in Yogyakarta Special Region, 2) to determine the demographic conditions—number of children, birth spacing—and the use and planning for contraceptive use in the future, reasons for choosing or not choosing certain types of contraception as well as understanding of NKKBS (Norma Keluarga Kecil, Bahagia, dan Sejahtera) and 3) to make recommendations about policies on population control, especially for population growth.
