This paper addresses the lack of information on the disparity of outcomes, utilization and access to Family Planning and Maternal and Child Health services by socioeconomic classes. Household statistics on these services by asset class are presented in this paper. The asset classes were derived from an index generated using principal components analysis on the presence of household amenities and means of transportation. The information generated are useful for better targeting of government Family Planning and Maternal and Child Health Services which are supposedly primarily targeted to the poor.
